Clemson University

Just six months ago I graduated from Clemson University and was pinned with my gold bar, I left the world of Army ROTC and just a month later I began the Armor Officer's Basic Course at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Though very different from College, I was able to adapt quickly and utilize many of the skills I learned through ROTC to succeed at my Officer Basic Course.

I graduated AOBC this past Friday and am working for the Fightin' Tiger Battalion until I start follow on schools in a week and a half. I can't wait to share my experiences with the Cadets here and help prepare them for life after college!

I am a recent graduate of the Clemson University Army ROTC program in South Carolina.  Since my BOLC-B report date isn't until January 2011, I began working as the GBR for Clemson Army ROTC a few weeks ago.  It's a good "starter job" because I am able to guide potential cadets towards our program by explaining to them the great training and life skills that you receive through the ROTC program.  Being a GBR is also a great "transition job" from cadet life to the real Army because I still get the experience of working as active duty before actually beginning my training.
