The Upson-Lee High School NJROTC Battalion helds its annual Inspection and Pass in Review Wednesday. The inspection was held in the gym, and following the inspection, the Battalion had a group photo taken (upper photo). Cmdr. Axel Spens, Executive Officer of Naval Recruiting District Atlanta did the inspection and said of the dozens of inspections he has done, this was the best inspection, adding that it is obvious the cadets put a lot of hard work not only in their uniforms, but on the parade ground and in their studies. Following inspection, the Battalion held a Pass in Review for parents and local officials (right photo). The Pass in Review included a demonstration by the rifle drill team, and the awarding of exemplary inspection medals to cadets.
