Warrant Officer candidates and their instructors participated in projects at Linden Hill Aug. 3, digging a trench to replace electrical wiring and painting. The candidates spend five weekends at Camp Ripley during their six-month course and 15 days at Fort McClellan, Ala. They give back to the community by doing various projects, with each year’s class choosing their own projects.
