Future military leaders from the Valley making us proud on the field.

Future military leaders from the Valley making us proud on the field.
They are future Valley leaders.

Right now they are proud Valley reps to Nationals.

The East Valley Red Devils Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp physical training team getting after it.
Joseph Ford "I want to go into the military. And, most likely go into Ranger School in the Army. So, this is very good athletically and leadership"
The Red Devisl...headed to the National Jr ROTC Raider Competition in Molina, Georgia at the end of this week....a grueling contest against some of the best athletes and teams in the country. How about these East Valley kids....they were at nationals last year....did great......hoping to bring a big trophy home this time........The Red Devils.....the only team from the west coast of the US headed to the nationals.
Col. Gary Mugleston "It's a big deal. Some of them never have flown in an airplane. So, they're going to Georgia. Never been in a plane. I think it's going to be exciting."
Erik Rollin "We're kind of bringing pride to our Red Devil Batallion. And, during all these practices, we do 5 or 6 hour practices it kind of builds us as individuals. Builds leadership in ourselves and so on."
A trip of a lifetime made possible with the help of some great local sponsors. Roy Famrs, Moxee Improvement Association and Calco Federal Credit Union.
Andrew Spellman "A lot of people back east don't know that Moxee even exits and so going back east and kicking butt brings us on to the map and they know who we are."
They've been schooled in discipline, both in physical fitness and mental toughness. And, the East Valley kids have responded. Some are honor society members. Some will go on to college with ROTC scholarships.
Col Gary Mugleston "We have three kids at ROTC, Central, three kids at Gonzaga going to East Valley. These kids are able to obtain by being in this program."
