JROTC Drill Down
The South Dakota National Guard and other recruiting officers got a first hand look at the possible future of their military at the annual Black Hills Drill Down.
Junior ROTC students from four area schools competed in a number of events in front of full-fledged National Guard members.
There are three different competitions: Regulation, which are basic army drills, Exhibition, where fancier tricks like tossing rifles are showcased, and Color Guard.
The competitions are fun for all students participating, but the life skills learned throughout the process are invaluable to these youngsters.
