During the annual Phantom Warrior Junior Cadet Leadership Challenge at Fort Hood Thursday, Killeen High School junior Alexia Lam and Harker Heights High School sophomore Camarioa Jordan move a bridge piece into place with the help of Ellison High School sophomore Charles Ilaoa and other team members at the Leadership Reaction Course. Beginning Tuesday and finishing Friday, 144 high school Junior ROTC cadets from eight high schools are participating in training on Fort Hood.

FORT HOOD — For soldiers, students or anyone else, the enemy can come in a variety of guises from the weather to a challenging colleague to a pool of murky, green water.

The past several years, the second full week of summer break in Central Texas has brought high school Junior ROTC cadet leaders to Fort Hood and the Phantom Warrior Junior Cadet Leadership Challenge.
