"As We Go Marching" was originally filmed by the family of Cadet Ray Reutlinger at Kemper Military School in Boonville, Missouri during WWII. It depicts, in many respects, the typical experience of cadets at Kemper. While the quality of the motion picture is at times poor it should be remembered that the technology of creating "home movies" was in its infancy. That any amateur motion picture images have survived to this time is remarkable, that a motion picture taken by a cadet parent exists depicting life at Kemper from the 40s is a miracle.
Allow yourself to be transported back in time, to an era when Kemper Military School & College was the envy of every private school in the United States. Enjoy the excitement of the Kemper Corps of Cadets as they demonstrate the pride of their 100 year heritage.
Turn up your volume!! Sit back and relax, transport yourself to a time when The Kemper Corps of Cadets was a strong cross section of America! See for yourself the power, feel the thunder, witness the leaders of "Our Greatest Generation" as teenagers.
