The Dalton High JROTC has taken up a monthly task of cleaning up a portion of our city. On Thursday, March 15, about twenty cadets left school after lunch to meet at the Dalton Food Lion. At the meet up location, cadets were briefed on safety and were issued safety vests, gloves and tools to pick up trash, as well as signs that warned the passing cars of a "Liter Crew" to provide an extra security measure.
The area that needed to be cleaned up was divided into multiple smaller sections and teams were assigned to each one. As the teams finished with their designated area, they moved forward and grouped with the next team to ensure as much trash as possible was picked up. As the cadets worked, the Battalion Commander and CSM Vazquez patrolled the area in a vehicle to make certain everyone was safe. Volunteers finished and returned to Dalton High to finish the school day.
As always, the cadets represented the program well and showed a desire to be there. C/LTC Samuel Stuart said, "I think it's really cool that most high school JROTC programs have already accepted the task of an Adopt a Mile, so it's great that we can add that on to our list of service opportunities."
Cadets look forward to continuing to help out doing their part in the community and keeping the city clean.
