Interested in the ALERT program? During ALERT Preview Day, you’re invited to join us for the Advancement Ceremony of our most recent Basic Training unit. Personally guided through the Advancement Day’s 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 Capt. Phillip Vanderford at 903-636-2000, ext. 2725.
