The Rolling Thunder Battalion Offers Hands-on Experience During Upcoming Open House

The Wheaton College Rolling Thunder Battalion is hosting an Open House on Thursday, April 5 offering two opportunities to experience life as an Army ROTC Cadet. Participants will learn what it's like to push to the limit, overcome challenging obstacles through teamwork skills, and sing while running.

Open House opportunities include joining cadets in their early morning Physical Training (PT) from 6-7:30 a.m. and/or practice leadership skills with the cadets as they work through Field Leader's Reaction Course (FLRC) obstacles from 3:15-6 p.m.

Those interested should meet in room 206 of Jenks Hall, located at 433 Howard Street in Wheaton. A host cadet will help guide participants through the training. There is no charge for this event, but registration is requested by Thursday, March 29.
