The Riverside Military Academy Corps of Cadets marches in Atlanta.

The Riverside Military Academy Corps of Cadets earned its seventh consecutive President’s Trophy for most outstanding entry in the 35th annual Atlanta Veterans’ Day Parade held last month in downtown Atlanta.

Riverside’s president, retired Col. William J. Gallagher, reunited with his former boss, retired Gen. George Casey, who served as the parade grand marshal.

Riverside battalion buglers Cadet Private First Class Josep Ginebra and Cadet PFC Ronel Kabore had the honor of kicking off the parade with a poignant performance of “Echo TAPS.”

This year’s parade theme was “Honoring the USO,” highlighting more than 75 years of support from the United Services Organization to active-duty military forces around the world.
