While most students have been relaxing or working their summers away, the students of the ROTC program have been working hard and having fun all at once. On June 16, Weber State University’s ROTC acted as the color guard for RSL as they participated in a US Open Cup match.
“For our cadets, these experiences are an opportunity to not only have pride in their country but still have some fun with their summer,” Captain Roger Gindlesberger said. “The great thing about how they have been doing with their color guard is that now we have become the first guard called when they need it done.”
For cadet Jake Rappleye, the ROTC program has offered many opportunities to learn and grow.
“Everything I have done has been an adventure,” Rappleye said. “But the greatest thing that I have been learning is how to be a better citizen and leader in this nation.”
This is one of the many opportunities available for student in the ROTC program. For more information about WSU’s ROTC program, go to http://www.weber.edu/rotc.
