The President’s Annual Yale NROTC Review.
The President’s Review is an annual Yale NROTC event that serves as a demonstration of military professionalism and precision, as well as an awards ceremony for Cadets and Midshipmen. A portion of the President’s Review involves a military custom known as the pass and review. The pass and review is centered on marching the unit past a reviewing officer, a time honored tradition of leaders looking over the unit to gauge its discipline, readiness, and fitness. This formal military ceremony honors hard work and dedication of a life in service, and ties together future military members with long-held traditions and customs. The appearance and movement of troops in formation are the primary considerations of a ceremonial parade. The preparation, organization of troops, and the conduct of a ceremonial parade require familiarity with close order drill as well as organizational and parade staff coordination.
