  Jaffe Eager Squad and Eager Individual drill competitions  
(Corps)

All are welcome to watch the annual drill competitions for members of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets.

The first group will start the Jaffe Eager Squad drill competition at 7 a.m. in the Perry Street Parking Lot. Rain location is the Perry Street Parking Garage. The last team should conclude by about 10 a.m.

The Eager Individual competition will be held on the Upper Quad and will run from 10:30 a.m. to about 12:15 p.m.

Each cadet company will field a squad consisting of a junior class cadet commander, two sophomore class cadets who serve as squad leaders, and eight first-year cadets. Each cadet's uniform and rifle will be inspected, and then the team will conduct the marching portion of the competition.

Every company will then be represented by a first-year and a sophomore cadet for the Eager Individual competition, which determines the most knowledgable and best-drilled cadets.

Members of the winning squad and the two individual winners will wear a special patch on their uniform for the remainder of their cadet career.

The Corps will conduct the competitions in accordance with the Army's field manual on drill and ceremonies. All rifles used are demilitarized, meaning they have no firing pins.
