It has been a very busy first 3 months of school for The Bulldog Battalion. Since school began in early August, the cadets have marched in a parade, competed in two physical fitness events and three drill meets, and performed Color Guard for every home football game. This past weekend, they competed in one of the largest drill meets in the state at Ocean Springs High School. Fifteen teams from all over Mississippi and Alabama, ranging from 3A to 6A, came to show off their drill moves. The Bulldog Battalion proved that their hard work paid off as they brought home several trophies. Color guard, led by James Ashmore, and armed squad, led by Mason Farrell, won first place. Armed Platoon, led by Kenneth Ellzey, won second place. Unarmed Platoon, led by Taylar De La Garza, and unarmed squad, led by Bailey Carbery, both won fifth place.
In the upcoming months, the cadets will continue to showcase their talents and represent Franklin County as they perform color guard for Veteran’s Day events, go rappelling at Terry High School, march in the Bude and Meadville Christmas parades, compete in the state Drill Meet at Brandon High School, plan their winter Military Ball, and participate in Wreaths Across America.
