Cadet Clubs

DMI officers and NCOs serve as OICs and NCOICs for the DMI-sponsored Military Clubs in support of the Directorate of Cadet Activities’ mission to significantly enhance the development of the United States Corps of Cadets militarily, physically, academically, moral-ethically, spiritually, and socially by providing organized, comprehensive and diverse programs and facilities, which provide for entertainment, extracurricular, recreational, cultural and social activities. Military Clubs sponsored by DMI include:
