In between packing their equipment and their suitcases, the cadets in the Regimental Band and Pipes are on Facebook talking about their departure, which is just hours away in Scotland. The cadets will be back on campus Sunday afternoon.

Angela Yenca just marched off the esplanade for the last time. What an awesome experience! Thank you to everyone who was a part of it or helped to make it possible. Packing up my bags, saying goodbye to Edinburgh, and getting ready to head to the highlands!

Josh Wright: It has come to an end. It's been a long and stressful month but it's all worth it. The friends I have made cannot begin to describe what an awesome month this has been. Thank you Lord for giving me an awesome opportunity this month, thank you everybody for the prayers and support this past month. Love you all. And to my new friends, Good luck in the future and hope all goes well. Keep in touch and the time will come before we meet again. Thanks for all that you have done.
