Fun and military discipline and more fun. A useful but fun (can never have too much fun) time here in town, away at camp, visiting army training sites. That is what we heard recently from our army cadet visitors.
They came to see us (thank you cadets), talk to us about their cadet stints and even to listen to us when we explained that we do fun things too and dispelled (I hope) any thoughts that we are old fuddy-duddies.
We left with the firm idea that being an army cadet is a good adjunct to that formal thing called Education.
