Our annual Joint Brigade Best Drilled Individual (BDI) and Best Drilled Color Guard (BDCG) Regulation Drill competition took place on December 9th at Serra High School. The competition shapes cadets into performing sharp, swift drill movements with the rifle or flag. Each of the thirteen Battalions sent one cadet from each of the four LET levels to compete for the BDI competition and a LET 1 Color Guard and Varsity Color Guard team for the BDCG competition to represent their school. Many cadets who were not competing and parents of the participating cadets also came to show their support and spirit. Our participating cadets put in a lot of practice and work to give the judges a good impression with their performances. Thank you to all of those who competed and came out to support, and let us continue to work hard and preform even better next year!
