CMA develops sense of brotherhood

Brotherhood [bruhth -er-hoo d] - the belief that all people should act with warmth and equality toward one another, regardless of differences in nationality, creed or ethnicity. 

What exactly is brotherhood? Is brotherhood truly defined by the definition in a book? Is everyone a part of a brotherhood? The answer to all of these questions is “no.” Brotherhood is an experience that cannot merely be described in words. The bond has to be lived and have an everlasting effect on the members in the group that they will cherish and remember the brothers they created for the rest of their lives. 

When I first arrived at Camden Military Academy, I did not see myself meeting and becoming friends with so many of people I know to this day. The people you meet and the atmosphere created here at Camden cannot be replicated anywhere else in your life. Back in Charlotte, N.C., none of the teachers or friends I knew would go the extra mile that the people here at CMA would do for you. This learning environment helps all cadets not only become better students but better citizens. We learn and teach social values that we can look back on for the rest of our lives.

These moments we live at CMA, and the time spent together as a corps of cadets, truly defines brotherhood. Nowhere else would I have had the opportunity to live with and meet other students my age from all across the world. If it was not for CMA, I would not have met all my brothers I have today. The memories we will keep -- good or bad -- we will remember for the rest of our lives, and we owe it to the people who are committed and determined to impact our lives and watch us grow to become better people than we were before we came here. Not only do I speak for myself, but the entire corps of cadets. I truly say thank you to the administration, faculty and staff -- especially LTC Heflin, Camden Academy, Carlisle Military School, School of Southern Aviation and all the TAC officers here at this great institution.

I am a proud member of the Camden Military Academy Long Gray Line and look forward to representing what CMA stands for in the future. I will never forget my time at CMA or the friends who I now call brothers.
