CORPS Photos

Cincinnati’s Queen City Cadets were founded in 1963 by the Oola Khan American Legion Post 372 as a competitive junior corps. In 1972 the Post gave title to corps equipment to the Boosters Club, as sole sponsor of the corps, at which time Boosters and the corps incorporated as a unit, The Queen City Cadets, Inc. Also in 1972, the corps attended the first ever DCI Championships at Whitewater, Wisconsin, placing 35th.

The Cadets continued to compete through 1976. Most of the corps’ equipment went to the Pride of Cincinnati in 1980. The Queen City Cadets Alumni still meets annually.
