Jamaica Defence Force

On Saturday March 7, 2020, the 8th Intake of the Jamaica National Service Corps (JNSC), Intake 1903, graduated in Up Park Camp, Kingston. This Intake is to date the largest in the history of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF). The parade, which was formed up in two columns of nine platoons each, was reviewed by the Honourable Douglas Orane, retired Chairman and CEO of GraceKennedy Limited.

Also in attendance were Mr Donald Tapia, US Ambassador to Jamaica, Lieutenant General Rocky Meade, Chief of Defence Staff, Lieutenant Colonel Blair Waddington, Vice-President of the Caribbean Military Academy, a cadre of Officers and Warrant Officers, JDF soldiers and their families, as well as over eight thousand family members, friends and well-wishers. This Intake will now move on to complete their one-year training as a part of the requirement for persons to enter the JDF through the JNSC.
