Class of ’07 Captains Brown and Welsch, both flying Kiowas in Afghanistan

“ I think about my time in ROTC there constantly. Also, thank you for preparing me so well for what I have experienced so far in OBC. I think I speak for everyone in my commissioning class when I say that Clarkson has definitely instilled in us the skills and capacity to do well in every step we take from here on out. ”
