POTSDAM, N.Y. -- Downtown Potsdam was turned into a mock battlefield Thursday as about 100 members of the Golden Knights ROTC Battalion completed training.
Armed with fake guns, the students learned individual movements that can be used on the battlefield. It was the first step in a series of training that culminates in group exercises next semester.
"Coming into college, everyone has their niche or group that they fall into, but in the Army, we truly are a family. We look out for our cadets," said Cadet Captain Matthew Flynn.
The Golden Knights Battalion is made up of students from all four North Country colleges.
