Some 124 members of UNG’s Corps of Cadets took part in Advanced Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky, held every summer for 6,500 cadets from around the nation.
Advanced Camp is a program cadets must complete to be commissioned in the military. Cadets in their third year are tested on rifle marksmanship, buddy-team live fire, hand grenades, first aid, Army physical fitness, land navigation, and much more.
The training program allows the U.S. Army Cadet Command to assess the cadets’ proficiency as future officers. This evaluation helps determine the cadets’ rank in the Order of Merit List (OML).
Other summer training opportunities for UNG cadets included Cadet Advanced Individual Training, Cultural Understanding and Leadership Program, Cadet Troop Leader Training, and Nurse Summer Training Program.
