Fighting Eagles Cadet Experiences CBRN Chamber During ROTC Advanced Camp

One of our Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Cadet’s was spotted by the Cadet Command cameras exiting the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Chamber at Fort Knox, Kentucky.  Can anyone spot our Fighting Eagles Cadet in the below picture?:

Those with a keen eye should have noticed Cadet Megan Baker exiting the CBRN Chamber towards the back of the photo:

Cadet Baker is currently participating in Advanced Camp which is Cadet Command’s premier annual training event.  Advanced Camp is a requirement for all Cadets to pass in order to commission as Army officers.  At Advanced Camp, Cadets are trained and assessed on their ability to conduct basic officer leadership tasks.  One of those tasks is how to react in a CBRN environment.  While in the CBRN chamber the Cadets were tested on their ability to put their mask on in under nine seconds and their suits in under eight minutes before exiting the chamber and removing their masks to experience sniffing in the tear gas.  Cadets typically attend Advanced Camp between their Junior and Senior years of college.  Excelling at the 37-day Advanced Camp is why the Fighting Eagles battalion conducts challenging training to prepare our MS-III Cadets for camp.

EWU ROTC wishes Cadet Baker all the best as she moves towards completion of Advanced Camp 2019.  Go Fighting Eags!
