This summer EWU ROTC Cadet, Nicholas Castro completed ROTC Advanced Camp at Ft. Knox, Kentucky and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant (2LT) in the US Army Reserve. Recently 2LT Castro was selected to be a Nurse in the US Army Reserve and was also recognized as being a 2018 Distinguished Military Graduate (DMG). Only Cadets that finish in the top 20% of all Cadets across the country receive the DMG honors.
In recognition of 2LT Castro’s achievements, his journey from being a sergeant in the US Marine Corps to an officer in the US Army Nursing Corps was featured in an article published on the official US Army website. I recommend everyone read the article and learn more about another EWU ROTC “Fighting Eagle” that is excelling in his career as a US Army officer.
Congratulations 2LT Castro and Go Fighting Eagles!
