Record 149 cadets attend advanced camp at UNG
A University of North Georgia (UNG) record 149 rising senior cadets completed the Army Forward Camp at Fort Knox, Ky, this summer. A year earlier, the camp was canceled due to COVID-19 and converted to Operation Agile Leader for one year.
The students of the UNG Cadet Corps were grateful to be part of the 38-day forward camp where the U.S. Army Cadet Command tested their military and leadership skills. This allowed the cadet command to assess their skills as future officers. The camp is compulsory for all cadets who request a commission as a military officer.
• Kayla Danley of Winston has completed the forward camp.
• Delphina Djumeni from Douglasville has completed the forward camp.
• Jorge Isidoro-Galeno of Douglasville has completed the forward camp.
A record 33 UNG cadets have earned the Recondo Badge, which is awarded to cadets who demonstrate superior skill by exceeding standards in all camp activities.
Cadet Captain Hayley Farmer, a resident of Griffin, Ga, pursuing a degree in criminal justice, received the USAA Warrior Ethos Award, which is given to a cadet in each of the 11 regiments in the camp.
After the advanced camp, she helped young cadets supervise the base camp, also at Fort Knox. She said her time in the Cadet Corps made summer activities “second nature.”
“Camp reassured me that attending UNG was the best decision I’ve made in my career so far,” Farmer said.
With the Leadership Development Program (LDP) that UNG cadets experienced throughout their junior year, they were ready for whatever the military presented them at Fort Knox.
“Our cadres are the best in the country,” Cadet Col. Ryan Jones said of the UNG military instructors. “They know how to work with cadets and give us the reality of what the Army is.
Jones, a senior from Richmond, Va., Pursuing a degree in strategic and security studies, is the 2021-2022 brigade commander who leads the corps’ more than 700 members.
Cadet Lt. Col. Callie Regal, an elder from Dalton, Ga, pursuing a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, will command the Second Battalion of the UNG Cadet Corps over the next academic year. She enjoyed the teamwork at Advanced Camp.
“Everyone has their own piece to offer,” said Regal. “You can learn so much from the people around you. You can always ask questions.”
Major Joshua Larson, an assistant professor of military science at the UNG, said the pressure from Advanced Camp has helped army officers like him assess the leadership potential of future officers.
“The performance was seen, but the potential was where the executive came in with their own knowledge and experience,” said Larson. “Tactics were a way to increase or decrease the intensity of cadets in leadership positions to get good observations.
The cohesive approach by which the corps provides opportunities for cadets to lead their own training and events has proven to be beneficial once they reach the high stakes environment.
Cadet Captain Terrance Dorsey, a resident of Jonesboro, Ga. Pursuing a degree in sociology, was excited to develop his skills and help others do the same.
“The time in the field has helped me understand my leadership style,” said Dorsey. “I saw how I function when I am stressed and how other people function when they are stressed.”
