Congratulations to recently commissioned 2nd Lieutenant (2LT) Cesar Guzman who was awarded the Military Order of the Purple Heart Leadership Medal. Cadets who receive the award must be in the Top 25% of their ROTC class and demonstrated outstanding leadership abilities. The Cadet must also be active in school and community affairs.
2LT Guzman graduated this year with a degree in Biology and commissioned into the Washington State National Guard as a Signal Corps officer. During his time in ROTC, 2LT Guzman was a member of the Ranger Challenge team, assisted with Cannon Crew, and volunteered as part of the Washington State Adopt A Highway program. He also was a volunteer wrestling coach for Cheney High School.
Truly a great leader that we thank the Military Order of the Purple Heart for recognizing.
