Cadets Homecoming Weekend Spotlight: Scotty McGarry

| |

As part of the 2021 Homecoming Weekend event series, The Cadets will hold a very special Legacy Luncheon at the gorgeous Venetian venue in Garfield, N.J. The Legacy Luncheon will feature a delicious menu paired with a high-end selection of wines, and will honor the legacies of four members of the corps’ history. This week, we’re shining a spotlight on one of those four: Richard “Scotty” McGarry. Purchase tickets to Homecoming Weekend.


Richard “Scotty” McGarry joined the Cadets as a bugler in 1962. He spent five years with the corps and marched several years with his older brother, Owen.

After aging out, Scotty became The Cadets’ Historian and Photographer, a role he has held since the 1980s. Each year during Spring Training, he travels to the corps at his own expense, and puts on a wonderful History Night for the current Cadets. He also volunteers his time to take photos of the corps each the summer.

Scotty also served as a Board Member of the corps for several years. He was inducted into The Cadets Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2011.
