Det 465 Cadets Organize Disaster Relief Event

April 30, 2024


Integrity First. Service Before Self. Excellence In All We Do. The Core Values are what make up our morals and integrity of our service. The cadets of Detachment 465 joined the cadets at Detachment 470 of Omaha to provide volunteer services to the community of Elkhorn, Nebraska after having endured the horrific tornado storms that swept through the Lincoln/Omaha areas. Together, 22 cadets volunteered with hundreds of other community volunteers to help the Ramblewood neighborhood disaster relief efforts. Cadets removed debris from damaged homes and also made efforts to separate household items that were still intact to be returned to family members.


“This devastating storm has taken so many by surprise and as future officers, we are training to protect and serve our country. Our service can even be as impactful as helping our own Nebraska communities in such a time of need and support. This natural disaster has hit many hometowns that some of us cadets had grown up in and coming out here to help others is what matters most. Many cadets will continue in the coming weeks to assist Omaha Rapid Response and support volunteers with disaster clean-up efforts” said Cadet Ethan VanEnkevort.
