Jaguar Battalion says farewell to graduating seniors

Jaguar Battalion says farewell to graduating seniors

Teamwork and physical fitness are two of the fundamentals of JROTC training. A year’s worth of training is put the test annually at Field Day hosted by the Jaguar Battalion at Port St. Lucie High School. During Field Day, the three companies battled each other in several different sports and athletic activities to determine the best unit.  Battalion Field day is about saying goodbye to departing seniors. The Booster Club’s parting gift to the year’s seniors was a challenge coin commemorating their years spent with the Jaguar Battalion. Many seniors had several words to say about their experiences in the battalion, thanking the cadets and instructors within it for some of their greatest memories of high school.
