Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

The Crucible is a series of mental and physical obstacles that challenge cadets as an individual and a team, with tasks such as a 5-mile hike, a 1.5 mile rope carry, climbing challenges, conditioning drills and more. Maroon Phase training and handbook tests consist of learning MMA regulations, honor code and decorum.

To signify their official rank in the corps, the cadets were awarded the MMA hat brass, an emblem which mirrors the MMA crest.
