YOU are the leaders of the Eagle Battalion and the success that we can achieve this year rests on your shoulders. It is always easy to say, "Someone else will do it", but the real leader will step forward and take on tasks that are not neccessarily theirs. Remember, I hold you to a higher standard than the rest of the Eagle Battalion and the rest of the school. All of your teachers and the rest of the student body know that you are in JROTC and look to you as the example for effort, respect, and behavior. If you ever have questions about this battalion, I encourage you to talk to each other and the chain of command. If they cannot answer your question or solve your problem, my door is always open. I have every confidence in you and know that you will represent our battalion, and more importantly, yourselves in a favorable light.
