94th provides Junior ROTC cadets first flight.

More than 1,500 Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets experienced their first flight on a military aircraft during the 94th Airlift Wing's annual C-130 orientation flight event April 12-13 at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Ga.

Reservists, civilians, contractors and youth volunteers worked together to host the event, which also showcased static displays provided by the 94th Security Forces Squadron, the base honor guard, the emergency management office and other support organizations at Dobbins.

"This was a total team effort to execute this event," said Lena Bell, 94th Operations Group administrative assistant and coordinator for the JROTC day. "The high school students who participated were Navy, Air Force, Marines and Army Junior ROTC cadets from the Atlanta metro area."

Youth organizations who volunteered to help with the setup and coordination of the event included the Georgia Army Cadets of America and the Metro Atlanta Young Marines.

"It's great to witness the enthusiasm of the students who visit us during the JROTC flight days," Ms. Bell said. "Their excitement and enjoyment makes the two-day event a pleasure for all of the base agencies that take the time to support the event." (94th Airlift Wing public affairs, Dobbins ARB)
