Training corps inspection this morning

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The public is invited to watch the annual inspection of the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, or NJROTC.

The inspection of the 116 cadets starts at 8 a.m. at the main gym of Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave., said Maj. Leo Campbell, the senior naval science instructor for the high school's NJROTC unit, called Roughrider Company.

The inspection, which will scrutinize the cadets' uniforms and NJROTC knowledge they've learned over the course of their studies, will be performed by guest inspector and Port Angeles resident retired Naval Cmdr. Gary Velie, said Master Chief Jeff Perry, Roughrider Company's naval science instructor.

The results of the inspection are roughly one-third of what goes into consideration for the Distinguished Unit with Honors, the highest award ROTC programs across the nation can receive and one that the Roughrider Company has received seven years in a row, Perry said.
