Langley AFB, Va. –  More  than 70 U.S. Air Force Junior ROTC cadets from Hampton Roads are scheduled to participate in the annual Shadow Day at Langley Air Force Base on June 23.  During the event, cadets will be paired with Airmen from various career fields to see exactly what Airmen do on a daily basis.

During the camp, the cadets will be shown how to properly pack a parachute and inspect pilot flight suits, and base operations will demonstrate how different conditions are evaluated prior to flights.

Shadow Day is part of a week-long  Air Force Junior ROTC  Summer Leadership School hosted at Langley.

The cadets will experience daily dorm and uniform inspections, physical fitness tests, drill competitions and academic evaluations.
