    We also have a special flight for the seniors that have given 3 years to the program. X-Ray is full of AS4's (fourth year cadets) who work behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. With an averge of 12 students, these cadets are the top of the top. Their drive and ambition to help the program give them an honors credit in JROTC.
