Cadets go from classroom to aircraft carrier
Floresville High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets gather for a photo in front of the USS Lexington before boarding the carrier.
During a recent curriculum-in-action field trip, 23 juniors and seniors from the Floresville High School Air Force Junior ROTC program traveled to the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi for an overnight “live aboard” adventure.
These students have been studying the science of flight, and the visit to the USS Lexington provided an exciting hands-on experience. Atop the ship’s flight deck, they had a wonderful opportunity to compare and contrast the many different World War II and current-day aircraft, bringing to life their studies of the science of flight. They also had an opportunity to fly in the aircraft carrier’s flight simulator. Commander of the trip was Cadet Col. Lane Mohedano, assisted by Cadet Col. Jeremy Sanders. Most of the cadets shared that their favorite part of the visit was having an opportunity to spend the night on the World War II vintage ship, which was sunk off the northeast shore of Australia during the Battle of the Coral Sea.
