    Bataan Death March Memorial Hike

    Cadets are now able to sign-up for the Bataan Death March Memorial Hike on September 17. All cadets, regardless of year, are able to attend. The location of the march is Morgan's Groove Park in Shepherdstown and it will run from 8 am to 1 pm. Sign-up sheets are located in each of the instructors' ports.  

    Background: The Bataan Death March Memorial Hike honors those American and Filipino soldiers who who passed whilst serving their country in World War II. Contrary to what the name suggests, the 14-mile "march" which cadets will participate in is simply a ceremonial name and cadets will not be required to march the trail. Instead, they may walk or jog with their fellow cadets.

    Sign-ups are now opened for those who wish to volunteer for the Freedom's Run Marathon event in Shepherdstown on October 1 from 7:30 am to 1pm. Sign-ups are limited to 30 cadets and the sheet is located in Port 5. It is important to note that Freedom's Run takes place the same day as the scheduled Fall Road Cleanup and therefore cadets can not participate in both. All questions should be directed to the Kitty Hawk Air Society Commander, C/Maj Panzarella.
