Patriot Academy Soldiers Plant Trees on Army Earth Day 2010

Patriot Academy graduates prepare to plant 47 red and white oak tree saplings at North Vernon City Park in Indiana, signifying the first class of the National Guard Patriot Academy. They also planted 150 trees at the local Muscatatuck Park and gave 200 tree saplings to local school children. The class graduated March 18 with their high school diplomas and will ship to advanced individual training through the beginning of summer. The Patriot Academy is the Department of Defense's first and only accredited high school for dropouts who enlist into the Army National Guard and complete basic training.
