Combined Leadership Development Exercise (LDX)Op4-LDX-Spring2015.jpg

The Wildcat Battalion and Michigan Tech's ROTC Battalion traveled down to Camp Grayling for a combined Leadership Development Exercise (LDX) from March 19th to the 22nd.  The cadets accomplished a raid and ambush mission against an enemy forces that is pictured above.  The cadets also did training on a new program called Virtual Battlespace (VBS).  This training exercise helps teach cadets how to plan for missions and execute them.  This hands on training is something that makes our battalion unique.

$1,000 Donation to the Women's Center of Marquette


The Wildcat Battalion made a $1,000 donation to the Women's Center of Marquette.  They chose this non-profit for their donation because of the high prevalence of sexual assault in the armed forces.  Cadet Allen and MSG Hoffman presented the donation on the 5th of February to the center.  The NMU Wildcats would like to thank all those that supported their fundraiser to raise the money, so they could help this great organization.
