Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps left the school for their annual fall semester eight-hour trip to Corpus Christi to spend the weekend on the former battleship, USS Lexington also known as “The Blue Ghost” Oct. 6. During their stay, the cadets went on a scavenger hunt and explored the different tours throughout the ship and flight deck.

“My favorite part was the aircraft on the flight deck,” first-year cadet Ethan Myers said. “I want to be a pilot in the Air Force when I’m older and seeing what it was like was a super cool experience.”

On the second night, the cadets had the opportunity to eat dinner on the ship, listen to ghost stories and hear what it was like back in the ship’s war glory days.  

“Listening to all the freshmen talk about their first high school trip was cute,” said Cadet Colonel Emma Rick. “I love the color ceremony we do and touring the ship and scaring other JROTC kids.”

The cadets returned home Oct. 8, with a part of them still in Corpus waiting to come back next fall semester.
