EVENTS . . .
April and May are busy months for the Atlanta Metropolitan Council. Planning, activities, and awarding the Navy League's prestigious Theodore Roosevelt Medal and Ribbon to the "Outstanding Unit Cadets" from 9 Navy Sea Cadet units, 45 Navy/Marine Corps JROTC units, and two college NROTC units in the greater Atlanta area.
All this leads to the biggest council event of the year, the 25th Annual Youth Awards Banquet, on Thursday, May 10, 2018. This event celebrates the culmination of a year of hard work, learning, competition, community service and fun for over 3,500 cadets, almost 100 Naval Science instructors and numerous family and friends.
The attending "Outstanding Unit Cadets" at this banquet, through an application and brief interview process, compete for the "Cadet of the Year Award".
Make your reservations now [go back to home page] to join us at this major event and help us applaud and support these outstanding cadets and instructors.
We wish all our cadets the best of luck! And, we look forward to seeing you May 10th!
The Thunderbirds performance scheduled for March 24, 2018-March 25, 2018 will not happen in Georgia this year. It is, however, on the USAF Thunderbirds schedule for September 28-29 at Robins AFB, Georgia – “Robins AFB Air Show”
So, change your calander dates to next year's event and get your tickets early to see this sharply choreographed, drill-style ground ceremony that will kick off the demonstration by showcasing the attention to detail and esprit de corps that defines our enlisted members. As the jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse of the awesome skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots must possess. The solo pilots integrate their own loud and proud routine, exhibiting some of the maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon – the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet.
