On Sunday 19th March, 2017, the Anguilla Cadet Corps, in recognition of the one year anniversary of their re-launch, worshipped at the Church of God of Holiness in Pope Hill. The service was attended by a large contingent of Cadet Recruits, Officers of the Anguilla Cadet Corps, family of the Cadet Recruits and specially invited guests, including the founder and past Commander of the Anguilla Cadet Corps, Captain Vernon Fleming.

During the service remarks were given by the present Commanding Officer, 2nd Lieutenant Neville Hamilton, who gave a history and overview of the Corps. He stressed the five target areas for Cadet training: meeting the physical, spiritual, academic, social and emotional needs of the Cadets. He also spoke of the intentions for all activities carried out to address these needs in a holistic manner.
2nd Lieutenant Hamilton emphasised the need for continued support of the Corps, by the community, to ensure that the basic training needs of the Cadets are met.
