ORANGEBURG OUT OF THE PAST

Cadets marching to class, c. 1943: Over 4,000 American and 1,600 French cadets completed their primary flight training for World War II at the Hawthorne School of Aeronautics in Orangeburg. These cadets were brought up in the military fashion with marching, calisthenics, etc., during their training here. Today this campus is now The Oaks retirement community.
