Day in the Life, MSU Army ROTC

[jwplatform NT8okbJv]

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) — They are from different hometowns.They have individual career goals. When they unite, they are one. They are Army Strong.

They are junior cadet class of Mississippi State’s ROTC program. Under the guidance of their instructors, they will soon become leaders themselves.

This summer, these students will use the skills they’ve learned so far to compete against other college cadets.

So,  the  nature walk we took had a purpose. In reality, Army soldiers have several days to come up with a plan, practice, and then execute. This day, we only had 90 minutes to prepare for attack.

With a limited time frame, the assigned platoon leader must get to work. The best missions begin with a good plan. They get in place and practice their assignments.

It is up to the instructors to evaluate.

So, they’ll take their critiques, and continue to improve their skills as a unit. For this class of Army Cadets, preparing to protect their country, while representing their university is just one more day in the life.
