Any NJROTC cadet can become a member of the Drill team by simply attending drill practices. They are held everyday at 3:20pm in the NJROTC room. Each member must attend at least a minimum of 3 practices a week. If there are any times in which a cadet is unable to attend a practice that cadet should report to Commander Odessa Lucas, with a proper verbal excuse.
We ask that you please encourage your fellow cadets to become a part of this elite team, it is truly a great oppurtunity for everyone to experience.
we don't have enough people staying after school,to have a decent drill team, so it's YOUR job to get yourself and others staying after school.

Typically these include a unit flag and a departmental flag (Army, Navy, or Air Force). In addition to the flag bearers, who are positioned in the center of the Color guard, there are 2 individuals who carry rifles.The left and right shoulder.

The purpose of the Suitland NJROTC drill team is to instill a since of discipline and pride within each and every individual drill team member. It is to create a unique sense of military drill for each member. To create elite members and to equip them with proper military drill knowledge. To have a set team with the urge to want to excel beyond normal standards. It is for cadets who would like to compete in drill competions, perform at special events, and be the role models for the Suitland N.J.R.O.T.C. Battalion. Each member of the N.J.R.O.T.C. Drill team must have a certain level of respect for his/her self and others we have no time for disrespect, so we ask that those who come,please be fully dedicated to the unit.
