  4. 4. United States Corps of Cadets Weekly Wrap-up 22 JAN - 28 JAN 2012 4 REG Community Service th Although classes have only been in session forthree weeks and everyone is beginning to have busyschedules, companies have begun to invest themselvesin community service events. All of the regiments areleading the way in company-based volunteer projects,especially with Habitat for Humanity, WoundedWarrior events, and events to honor old graduates whowere killed in combat. CDT Danny Garcia, a member of the Class of2014, initiated a volunteer program in Company D-4to honor fallen old graduates, especially those fromD-4. CDT Garcia and his Company Commander, Picture of the D-4 fallen soldier bracelet, taken by Cadet HeatherCDT Heather Purkey, Class of 2012, have initiated a Purkey, D-4 Company Commander.comprehensive program in their company. Every cadetin the company wears a bracelet that states the name and information of a fallen graduate. Every Thursdaymorning, the company gathers together after morning formation and two D-4 cadets share a story theylearned about their fallen graduate. The intent is to honor the sacrifice of those who have passed before us,while building cohesion as a company. All of the proceeds from this project go directly to the AmericanWidows Project, a fund which helps families of those who have lost someone in combat. The company hasalready raised over $250 for the fund. Additionally, the Long Gray Line Team, a cadet-run organization, is going to send nine cadets andofficers, including Major Michael Denehy, the current B-1 Tactical Officer, to New Mexico to compete inthe 23rd annual Bataan Memorial Death March. This march, which is organized and sponsored by theVeterans of Foreign Wars, honors the sacrifice of the 76,000 American soldiers who marched over 60 milesin harsh conditions upon the onset of World War II . The team, which recently sent 95 cadets and officerswho successfully participated in the Marine Corps Marathon, will wear a 35 pound ruck sack during theduration of their run. The race will be organized into five man teams, which will each run 25.2 miles throughthe sandy desert and hills of White Sands Missile Base. The Long Grey Line Team is raising money for theTragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). This program is dedicated to assisting the families ofboth wounded and deceased soldiers. Their goal is to raise $7,500 for TAPS. If you are interested in donatingto the Long Grey Line, please contact CDT Louis Tobergte at Louis.tobergte@usma.edu. Written By CDT Elizabeth Constantino
