The elite Hudgins Rifles drill team masters the U.S. Army’s precision Arms Manual and Facing Movements.
Named in honor of COL Morgan Hudgins, Fishburne’s second superintendent, the Hudgins Rifles have performed in National Drill Meets and received on-campus training from members of the United States Army (also known as “The Old Guard” from Arlington National Cemetery). Executing precision routines based on Old Guard and movements, the Hudgins Rifles provides awe-inspiring entertainment during half-time shows, Parents Weekend performances and Alumni Weekend “Drill Downs.”
Fishburne Military School is the oldest and smallest of the military schools in Virginia for boys. Its college-prep curriculum is built upon the structure of an Army JROTC program. FMS is designated as a JROTC Honor Unit with Distinction and may nominate qualified candidates to the United States Service Academies. Fishburne hosts one of only four Summer JROTC programs in the nation, accredited by US Army Cadet Command.
