In Announcements, by , on April 21st, 2016

It was a unique spectacle at Niagara University on April 14 as four United States Army Blackhawk helicopters touched down on the university’s rugby pitch to escort ROTC cadets to Fort Drum for a military training exercise.

The helicopters arrived at 1:30 p.m. to transfer 80-85 ROTC cadets from Niagara University and Canisius College to Fort Drum for a three-day leadership training.

“The integration of aviation assets into the training has bolstered the excitement level and anticipation of the cadets, most of whom have never ridden on an Army aircraft,” noted Lt. Col. Gary Love, chair of NU’s military science department.
