Confidence and charisma the rank of 2nd Lieutenant is something to be proud of

“ I think that the Army is an extremely well built organization with lots of great opportunities. I believe that it is an honor to be a part of this organization, and to me nothing is more motivating than getting to lead soldiers. ROTC has been great because it has helped me to stay focused on my goals. It has placed me amongst great people from whom I have learned a great deal. I would recommend the ROTC route to anyone, it has been great for me and I think great things should be expected from Lieutenants who are products of ROTC. ”
