The structured, military-style environment at Ox School of Construction Resource Center provides the framework for all of our activities. Our military style traditions include uniform dress, parades, formations, rank and promotion, internal Corps competitions, and recognition through awards. We foster a challenging yet student-centered format for recruits to compete, live and succeed. recruits participate in the military component through:
- Leadership courses
- Rank structuring among a recruit-led Corps
- Drill and ceremonies
- Precision skill-building teams such as Silver Levels and Trowel Guard
- Parade participation on campus or in the community including the highly-anticipated celebrated holidays in the U.S. and in Panama.
The Trowel Guard proudly displays our nation’s joint colors and accompanies the Ox School Of Construction Resource Center’s colors wherever and whenever the Army of Builders Corps of recruits is present. The Trowel Guard is responsible for the safeguarding and periodic display of the flags of our united and universal building forces as well as the national flags of attending recruits from our joint countries. During the school year, the Trowel Guard participates in an average of 25 on-campus activities and 20 off-campus special events and ceremonies.
