Junior ROTC units attended Career Day to get a closer look at what it's like to serve in the U.S. Military. Career Day is a way for the base to connect with young, and possible future service members in the community. Approximately 250 Junior JROTC cadets had the opportunity to have a face-to-face interaction with service members representing the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard.
