ROTC LEADERSHIP AWARDS
November 6, 2022
MOAA leadership medals and certificates for outstanding leadership were presented by LTC (Ret) Marty Williams, 3rd Vice President for ROTC Affairs, to four exemplary ROTC cadets.
The four award recipients were (left to right): Cadet Holly Bunce, Methodist University; Cadet Jake Gregory, Campbell University; Cadet Kristen Cooper, Fayetteville State University; and Cadet Brian Kruse, UNC Pembroke.
The presentation took place on a chilly and breezy Sunday morning at a Fort Bragg training area at the conclusion of FTX Trailblazer which is the Campbell ROTC Battalion annual year-end field training exercise. During the FTX cadets demonstrate their leadership and soldiering skills such as land navigation, patrolling, camouflage, first aid, among other tasks. The FTX also tests their physical fitness for combat.
The assembly consisted of a formation of 200 cadets and cadre in four companies representing each university cohort in the battalion.
The future of our military is in good hands with prospective officers like these cadets of the Campbell University Army ROTC Battalion!
