The Week That Was…

The Hazy, Not So Lazy Days of Summer

For those Cadets staying on the College grounds this summer, training began this past week as summer came to the peninsula. Second Language Training, Engineering Decompression, and training for the upcoming 2012 Nijmegen March will run until the end of July and into early August. As Cadets went back to work, 25366 NCdt Shewfelt got out to capture some of the signs of summer around the College.

Raising the Roof – New RMCC Sports Dome Goes Up

Construction on the new multipurpose sports done at RMCC, located on the old Constantine parking lot, has been going on for months now. Staff and Cadets have become accustomed to the sight of crews preparing the ground constructing the foundation for the new facility, and while little visible progress seemed to be happening, that all changed this past week as the dome itself was finally raised. The process, which took two days to complete, can be seen below.
