Student Testimonials

“Every day at ALERT, I learn to depend on Christ more. I’ve learned there is always room to grow, that I don’t have all the answers, and most importantly, that it is my walk with Him that really matters.”

Kenjie S.  |  Unit 66

“Before I came to the ALERT program, my life was without direction and purpose. I would spend my time working dead-end jobs and playing video games, and occasionally participating in outdoor activities if invited. After going through Basic training, I saw a glimpse of what I could be if I wanted to change. Over my time at ALERT, I have seen God’s grace to me as my faith and reliance on Him grew. I can say for certain that ALERT has changed my life for the better in terms of leadership, discipline, physical strength, and so much more. I will forever be grateful to this program and the men in it.”

Joshua L.  |  Unit 64

“The unique tensions and challenges that I faced here forced me to rely on God and get out of my comfort zone. It taught me to behave with conviction, think with clarity, and speak with authority. ALERT gave me a valuable perspective about life, God, and people that I never had before.”

Can you hear the rhythm
The left right rhythm?
Oh, yes sir we can,
Let us do it again.

Can you hear the sound
Of the boot hit the ground?
Oh, yes sir we can,
Let us do it again.

Can you hear the sound
Of the boot hit the ground?
Oh, yes sir we can,
Let us do it again.

My dog Lima loved to roam
One day Lima left his home
He came back so squeaky clean
Where o’ where had Lima been

My dog Jelly love to roam
One day Jelly left his home
He came back so squeaky clean
Where o’ where had Jelly been

Where o’ where had Lima been
Where o’ where had Jelly been
Where o’ where had my beans been.

June 6, 1944

Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hope and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
Dress it from the right and cover it down
Forty Inches all around
Dress it from the right and cover it down
Forty Inches all around
 
Chorus:
Your right a your righty left
Your right a lefty righty low
Your right a your righty left
Your right a lefty righty low
