Fighting Eagles Cadets Continue to Arrive at ROTC Advanced Camp

Our Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Cadets continue to arrive at Ft. Knox, Kentucky to attend Advanced Camp.  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 latest EWU ROTC “Fighting Eagles” Cadets to arrive at Advanced Camp are Jacob Villasenor, Hunter Smith, and Austin Bristow.  They are part of the 10th Regiment at Advanced Camp.  Another addition to our Cadet Summer Training team is Cadet Michael Beier.  He is an MS-II Cadet that volunteered to go to camp as an Opposing Force (OPFOR) participant.  During field training exercises the OPFOR role play enemy soldiers for the Cadets being assessed to engage.

EWU ROTC Cadet, Michael Beier begins inprocessing at Ft. Knox, Kentucky.

Our final EWU ROTC Cadets will be arriving on July 12th for the start of the 11th and final Regiment of Advanced Camp.  Best of luck to all of our Fighting Eagles Cadets attending summer training.

Go ROTC!  Go Fighting Eags!
