The Pine-Richland/Mars AFJROTC cadets traveled to Youngstown Air Base on Jan. 29 for an educational trip as well as the opportunity to fly in a C-130. The cadets got to explore the ship and learn all about it uses and capabilities. They then boarded the aircraft through the backhatch and got to go on an actual flight.

The program has students from Pine-Richland and Mars Area School Districts. According to its mission statement, the program instills Air Force values of “integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.”

The program is for students in grades 9 to 12 and participation does not obligate anybody to join the military.

For details about the program, call the school at 724-625-4444, ext. 1055 and ask for Maj. Michael Morrison, or reach him by email at
