1LT Bridgette M. Navejar

Deputy Regimental S-1

"I attended the University of Alaska Army Fairbanks upon receiving acceptance into the Active Duty option Green to Gold Program.  Prior to my entry into ROTC, I was a Sergeant (E-5) Paralegal Specialist for the Fort Wainwright Criminal Law Office. I had received my Associated Degree while assigned in Korea and was eager to continue my pursuit of higher education.  I entered UAF ROTC as an MS III, and was greatly impressed by the professionalism, technical and tactical knowledge of both the Cadre and Cadet Corp. The Cadre was flexible and allowed the cadets to schedule military science classes around their other mandatory classes. We partook in weekend labs covering diverse arenas of tactical skills. Upon completion of my MS III year I attended the leadership Advanced Course (LDAC) in Fort Lewis, Washington. Myself and my classmates were fully prepared for the experience and scored much higher on our overall evaluations than other colleges.  Upon entering my MS IV year, I served as the Battalion S-1 and S-3. I learned the intricate details of what it takes to be a successful staff officer. I was able to graduate as a Distinguished Military Graduate and received my First branch choice, Adjutant Generals Corp. Since my departure from UAF, I attended the Basic Officer’s Leader Course in Fort Sill and The Adjutant General’s Basic Course in Fort Jackson.  My first commissioned assigned was a one year tour as the Battalion S-1 for the 36th Signal battalion, Camp Walker, Korea. I am now serving as the Deputy Regimental S-1 for the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, Fort Hood Texas and am preparing for deployment this fall.  The University of Alaska Fairbanks Army ROTC program ensured that I was prepared and trained for situations which I have and will encounter.
