Let me take a moment to thank everyone for their continuing support of the North Brunswick JROTC program. I want to introduce myself as the new Senior Army Instructor, SAI. My name is LTC (Ret) Stewart Moon. I have just recently retired from active duty after 25+ years of service to the nation.  I am humbled to be selected for this position. My team and I look forward to continuing to work with the students as they hone their skills towards becoming engaged and productive citizens. 

We have had successful trips to the Leland Holiday Parade and to Pirate Voyage.  We also had a Holiday Shoot-out on December 6, where North took first place and also went to 4th Brigade ROTC rifle meet in Lexington to defend their Best of the Best title for a 3-Peat!!!

“Three Brunswick County High Schools travelled to Lexington, North Carolina to compete in the 4th Brigade JROTC 3 position Air Rifle Best of the Best competition.  North Brunswick went in as the two time defending champions having won in both 2012 and 2013.  When the last shot was fired North Brunswick was crowned champion for the third time in three years.  The team completed the competition with a score of 2125 (possible 2400).  They were followed by Ridge View High School, SC and South Brunswick High School.  West Brunswick gave Brunswick County three of the top eight teams (20 team’s total) by finishing eighth. North Brunswick was led by Chris Hines with 542 (17 bulls), Spencer West 538 (13 Bulls), Austin Johnson 528 (24 bulls), and Joseph Johnson 517 (13 Bulls).  Individual shooter Shianne Koehnle defeated all individual shooters and novice shooters.  She shot a match high (all shooters) 554 (17 bulls).  All five of the North Brunswick shooters finished in the top 13 shooters out of 96 competing.

We want to get our cadets to reach out to neighbors to link to JROTC at Harris Teeter.  We also want to capture the information so we can put them in each year in August.  If you shop at Harris Teeter and have or would like to have a VIC card please consider linking to 8704 so we will get quarterly benefits from Harris Teeter Together in Education program.  You can give the cashier your phone number at check out and ask them to link you to 8704.  You can also go on line to http://www.harristeeter.com If you link to another school please consider adding us as another link.

LTC (Ret) Hanna will still be in the area and will be my touchstone to ensure there is no lapse in capability or resident knowledge.  The Team he built will continue to do everything in our power to set the future citizens up for success.  If you have any questions I might be able to help you with please feel free to contact me at 910-371-2261, Ext: 1129.
