E Battery

Join Our Motorized Unit

E Battery is the motorized unit giving cadets experience with different types of vehicles and their operation and maintenance. Cadets receive a variety of hands-on mechanical training unlike anything found at any other prep school in the world.

 

The Corps is marching into Wayne for the Veterans Day Memorial.

On Saturday, most of our Plebes were recognized as Cadets in the 94th Corps of Cadets. These two months of hard work have paid off!

Families (especially little siblings) were happy to be reunited with their Cadets.

We celebrated the groundbreaking of a new athletic complex this week.

The complex includes a new synthetic turf field and accompanying track and field resources.

“This is only the first step of our strategic plan and vision,” Colonel Helgeson said. “We are grateful for the partnership with Eastern University and are thrilled that we will be able to offer first-class facilities to our cadet-athletes.

“Once this project is completed, we will immediately look to begin phase two of our sports complex upgrades, which will provide VFMAC and the surrounding community with much-needed sports and recreational fields and facilities.”
