Erwin Army JROTC and Roberson Air Force JROTC cadets participated in a staff ride to the Citadel and an overnight stay on the USS Yorktown in Charleston, SC. 
Erwin cadets were given an admissions brief by the cadre of the Citadel.  Cadets were provided lunch and a walking tour of the campus.  The opportunity to tour one of America's premier military academies during the university's commissioning day was a special treat.  The evening was spent  aboard the USS Yorktown.  Cadets had the opportunity to eat and sleep in authentic ship facilities.  The stay gave our cadets an on hands experience of Navy life. 
The spring trip culminated with a quick trip to Isle of Palms beach for and afternoon of fun in the sun.  Cadets were able to bond end enjoy themselves prior to the return in Asheville.
