Red Carpet Day

May 25


Please note that this event is specifically for young men interested in joining the ALERT program, along with their families. If you are coming to show your support to a family member or friend in Basic Training, please register for the Advancement Ceremony.

Interested in the ALERT program? On Red Carpet Day, you’re invited to join us for the Advancement Ceremony of our most recent Basic Training unit. Personally guided through Red Carpet events by a member of the ALERT battalion, families have the opportunity to hear from the Commanding Officer and ask him any questions about the ALERT program. Advanced Training officers are also available to answer any questions about course requirements, training aspects, and certifications. For more information, please contact Lt. Phillip Vanderford at 903-636-2000, ext. 2725.
