    This Tuesday will mark the 175 Anniversary of the First Cadet Sentinel Cadet John B. Strange assuming Guard Post #1 of the state arsenal in Lexington. (Perfect name for the first cadet in my humble opinion :rolleyes:). Video below is a interesting look at the Cadet Battery practicing for the Founders Day parade (first round is slowed down to 5% of actual speed)

    Pretty excited for Founder's Day missing class, but of course as Rats they find ways to keep us miserable and busy haha.

    Oh, if VMI has done anything for me, it's forced me to find the humor in every possible situation lol! Rat Olympics and Governor McAuliffe speaking (and pardoning PTs) were awesome.
