Last week, Blackjack Drill Team members John Branch, Kevin Phillips, Brandon Vancosky, and Jacob Edwards returned from a two-week experience in France assisting with The History Channel’s The Pershing Project celebrating the 100-year of anniversary of WWI. For Cadet Branch, it was a “once-in-a-lifetime experience” helping out with the behind-the-scenes work of filming. Cadet Vancosky was overwhelmed and inspired by the sheer number of monuments commemorating the American presence during the War. Cadet Phillips’s most memorable experience was taking part in the French mealtime tradition of enjoying good food and fellowship as extended social affairs.
