Life in the Illinois Army ROTC

By Beck Diefenbach

Last Friday was the annual Tri-Service Military Ball. Cadets from the Army, Navy, Air-Force and Marines attened the event held at the Round Barn Banquet Hall in Champaign. This is the first military ball for the freshman cadets, also known as MS1s. The senior cadets, MS4s, only have a few more months until it is their time to take the Oath of Office. Listen and watch as Lt. Gen. Gary North gives his speech in hopes of energizing the cadets who will soon become officers.
