Today Captain (CPT) Anthony Fleck, a 2015 graduate from the Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) battalion, took command of the Recruiting Company in charge of enlisting new U.S. Army Soldiers from the Greater Spokane region. After graduating from Eastern in 2015 with a degree in Psychology, Anthony commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Ordnance Branch through the university’s Army ROTC program.
After being selected for the Ordnance branch, CPT Fleck was then selected to attend the prestigious Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) School at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. After completing EOD training Anthony was then stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM). While stationed at JBLM he deployed to Kuwait and Iraq to conduct EOD duties in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.
Now as a Recruiting Company commander he will be in charge of all the recruiting stations in the Spokane area, northern Idaho, the Pullman-Lewiston region, as well as our local recruiting station here in Cheney. There is no one better than a Spokane local and a proud EWU graduate to enlist new Soldiers from the area into our great Army.
Welcome home CPT Anthony Fleck and congratulations on your new command!
Go Fighting Eags!
