Cadets are being requested to assist our Legion in their Annual Poppy Campaign. The basic purpose of the poppy funds is to provide assistance to ex-servicemen and women in need. It is important that our cadets support the legion we call home and the veterans they serve. The CO asks that each cadet does 3 shifts, but it is strongly encouraged that cadets do more.
