Antonio Bush, Regina Carpenter, and Nathan Miller were commissioned 2nd Lieutenants in the United States Army. It was an emotional day for both commissionees and their family members. LTC Nachee Miller, a former Bison PMS, administered the oath of office to his son Nathan and two proud fathers were given the opportunity to render the first salute. 25 year Air Force veteran MSgt (R) Bush rendered the first salute to his son, 2LT Antonio Bush; and a former Sergeant in the US Army and a Vietnam veteran, SGT Carpenter, proudly rendered the first salute to his daughter, 2LT Regina Carpenter. The Bison Battalion Senior Military Instructor, MSG Graves, was honored in rendering the first salute to 2LT Nathan Miller. As they close a chapter in their lives as a student and a Cadet, they open a new chapter as they join the ranks of professional Soldiers and leaders. Congratulations to the newest Bison Alumni and US Army Lieutenants!

“ ……As a Cadet and student I must be able to balance both academics and military science. There are times when one or both will demand all of my time and I must be able to prioritize, organize and then execute to get the job done without falling behind. It can be very stressful at times; determination, dedication and the desire to do well and face diversity will help anyone overcome any obstacle. ROTC is not for everyone, however, if the right person has the will to do something most others would never dream of, then I say go for it……. ”
