CAP 2016 Drill & Ceremonies School!

2016 CAP DCSThe Virginia Wing hosted the Middle East Region’s Drill and Ceremonies School (DCS) April 8-10, 2016 at Fort Pickett (VA) and it was a great success!

The cadets went through standing manual, command voice, first step, and individual, flight, and squadron marching. We were even able to get a couple hours of manual of the guidon, flagstaff and rifle!

Here is a link to highlight pictures taken by CAP Lt Col Kimberly Frady, 2016 CAP MER DCS.

US Military Service Drill and Ceremonies Manuals

These are the manuals you need to know front-to-back, back-to-front, inside and out. While some may think this information boring, as someone affiliated with a marching program (cadet, military member, first responder, etc.), these manuals are the foundation of what you do and it is a MUST that you read your service’s specific manual(s) and that you do not ever rely on what someone else says is the way to do something. Knowledge is power: read, read, read.
