108 cadets face Advanced Camp trials at Fort Knox


This summer, 108 rising seniors in the Corps of Cadets at UNG spent about a month getting tested on their military and leadership skills, allowing the U.S. Army Cadet Command to assess their proficiency as a future officer in Advanced Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky.

Instructors attribute UNG’s history of success at Advanced Camp to the corps’ Leadership Development Program (LDP), overseen by Capt. Paul Scifers. Throughout the junior year, LDP focuses on the areas and skills cadets are tested on at Advanced Camp, including tactics and battle drills, land navigation, and first aid or “buddy” aid.
