Georgia Military College Cadets to Receive Crests During President’s Parade

(Milledgeville, GA) October 2, 2003 – Georgia Military College offers a unique combination of academic, military, and character education to students at the levels of sixth grade through the second year of college. Those who began Georgia Military College for the first time this fall will be officially welcomed into the Regiment, during the President’s Parade, Sunday, October 5, 2:00 PM, on Davenport Field. The new Cadets will have GMC crests pinned onto their uniforms, by a family member or close friend, signifying they are officially members of the 125th Corps of Cadets. Once the new Cadets have been pinned, Cadets who have preceded them will seek them out to congratulate them and welcome them into their ranks. This act of acceptance is known as “The Sophomore Handshake.”

As part of this year’s Make a Difference Day efforts, immediately before the pass and review, GMC will announce a special thanks to our veterans, and ask that they stand up and be recognized.
The public is invited to attend.
