The California Cadet Corps (CACC)


Brigadier General Edwin Alexander Forbes founded the California Cadet Corps (CACC), on April 5, 1911. The CACC is the oldest youth leadership development of its kind in the United States. Currently, more than 100 schools across California and 10,000 cadets participate in this program. OMI uses the CACC Curriculum and regulations as a part of its day-to-day operations. All of the cadets at OMI, are members of the CACC. The Cadet Corps Headquarters conducts the Annual General Inspections once a year. Cadets are expected to actively participate in the inspections. In addition, cadets are encouraged to participate in cadet activities such as drill competitions, bivouacs (camping trips) leadership schools, Individual Major Awards (IMAs) and rifle matches. OMI has a proud tradition of excellence in the CACC Competitions as evidenced by the growing number of trophies, plaques, and awards located in the military building. OMI has been designated as the 17th Training Regiment and apart of the 4th Brigade, which comprises of all Youth Programs of the California National Guard and the greater Northern California area.
