The annual J.R.O.T.C. Military Ball is one of the most anticipated events that the Hawk Battalion has to offer, with an annual attendance rate of more than half of the Battalion. Cadets will receive a three course meal that is provided by the amazing staff at the Indian River Colony Club, along with a guest speaker, and a night filled with laughter, dancing, and great music. We are forever grateful for the guest speakers that attend our ball every year to provide words of wisdom and inspiration. We would also like to thank the Booster Club that puts together this great event for the Cadets and to the Indian River Colony Club who host us year after year and provide top tier staff and venue.
