    I'd like to know too. After the Friday event and the Saturday morning parade, are the cadets free to leave campus until Monday evening as there is no home football game this year? If their are no events and the cadets can be off campus Saturday and Sunday nights, I would be inclined to take accommodations outside of Great Neck.

    There are many videos and google search articles on the ceremony know as Beat Retreat. A musical spectacle rooted in uniformed ceremonies.
