EWU Army ROTC Cadets Conduct Weapons and Rappel Training at Advanced Camp 2019

Two more of our Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Cadets were caught by the Cadet Command camera team conducting training at Advanced Camp in Ft. Knox, Kentucky.  Advanced Camp is Cadet Command’s premier annual training event that assesses Cadets on their ability to conduct basic officer leadership tasks.  Cadets usually attend Advanced Camp during the summer between their junior and senior years of college.  Passing Advanced Camp is a mandatory requirement for all Cadets who want to commission as an officer in the U.S. Army after graduation.  The first Eastern Cadet caught on camera was Nicholas Null who was pictured conducting weapons assembly and disassembly training:

Cadet Null is an incoming senior studying political science at Eastern and on pace to graduate with honors.  He graduated from Advanced Camp’s 7th Regiment on July 29th.  After Advanced Camp Cadet Null flew to Ft. Sill, Oklahoma where he is currently participating in a Judge Advocate General (JAG) internship.  Congratulations to Cadet Null for graduating Advanced Camp and we hope he has a great time learning more about the duties of a JAG officer at his internship.

The next Eastern Cadet pictured by Cadet Command was Joseph Jordan.  Cadet Jordan was pictured conducting rappel training:

Cadet Jordan is an incoming senior studying criminal justice who is on pace to graduate with honors next year as well.  He is in Advanced Camp’s 9th Regiment that is scheduled to graduate on August 8th.  In total EWU ROTC has had 9 Cadets complete Advanced Camp with 13 more to go.  The final regiment at Advanced Camp is 11th Regiment which will graduate on August 18th and will end this year’s Advanced Camp season.  EWU ROTC wishes all the best to all of our remaining Cadets as they move towards completion of Advanced Camp 2019

Finally thanks again to the Cadet Command Public Affairs Office team for taking pictures of our Eastern Washington University ROTC Cadets.

Go ROTC!  Go Fighting Eags!
