The Lebanon Trail Navy National Defense Cadet Corps held their first military ball on February 24, 2024, at the Frisco Stonebriar Country Club. The event was a smashing success as more than one hundred of the cadets in this year’s program attended.

Major Gary Billings, USMC, Ret, Senior Naval Science Instructor, and Lt Col Ivan Acosta, USAF, Ret, Naval Science Instructor, welcomed the cadets and orchestrated the program.  Larry Wilhelm, Post 178 Executive Committee Member, also attended and enjoyed the evening.

The evening afforded the cadets an opportunity to learn about traditional formal military dining, dress, and etiquette, while at the same time enjoying the camaraderie with fellow cadets and dancing late into the evening.
