Cadets of NOMMA will participate in a clean up day at their new home aboard Federal City. Cadets will learn about the upcoming Earth Day and then break into Platoon sized formations to scour the Federal City site in search of errant garbage needing to be secured.
The cadets will meet on the school’s 425 O’Bannon St. campus in Federal City in Algiers on Friday, April 18 from 8:15 am to 10:30am.
Over 350 cadets from the school will participate with the aim to help beautify Federal City and the community.
