The Kennedy Honor Platoon poses for a picture with their trophies at the Air Academy Drill Meet.

This is NOT a drill! Pictured above is the BEST DRILL TEAM IN COLORADO STATE HISTORY. At the Air Academy Drill Meet, the JFK Honor Platoon took 1st Place in Regulation Drill, 1st Place in Exhibition Drill, 1st Place in Color Guard, 2nd Place in Inspection and 1st Place overall. Vanessa Covarrubias commanded the Regulation and Exhibition, Leilah Burgos commanded the Color Guard and Ruby Guzman commanded the Inspection. Please help us congratulate The Honor Platoon for their hard work and dedication, AND help us celebrate MSG (R) Scot Kinder for being coach of the year!

Commander cadets, you continue to blow us away with your dedication and passion. Congratulations on this massive achievement!
