MTU Army ROTC cadets participate in the Norwegian Foot March

Over Thanksgiving break we had seven cadets (Newell, Grulke, Maxey, Allen, Stelmaszek, Wittkopf, and Catron) attend the Norwegian Foot March at Adren Hills Army Training Site, Minnesota.  It is a 30 KM/18.6 Mile march. Each participant carries  a 11 KG/25 Lbs ruck packed with nonperishable food and hygiene items that are donated to those in need at the end of the march.  All seven cadets passed the standard for the Norwegian Foot March and they all earned the bronze Marsjmerket badge. CDTs Grulke took 23 and Maxey took 24 out of 260. Good job Arctic Warriors!
