Some of the Newberry College Army ROTC cadets prepare to head into the Blackhawks for some training. Two Blackhawks landed on the field by the football stadium Thursday afternoon and made a couple of other stops at colleges nearby. The National Guard and ROTC students partnered together for this aviation lab experience.
A group of Newberry College Army ROTC head into one of the two blackhawk helicopters at Newberry College Thursday afternoon. The blackhawks will also pick up students from Presbyterian College and Lander and head to Whitten Center for medical evaluation training. The experience takes about 30 days to plan and Cadet Chris Keesee says they are very excited about this opportunity. Keesee adds they are headed on a mission to load and drop at Whitten Center and will do their medical evaluation training. They will then come back to the college.
