Congratulations 2LT Kuegler!

2LTKuegler

We’re proud to announce that, after graduating from Boston Unversity with a degree in Athletic Training, our most recent alumnus P/R CPT (Ret.) Hannah Kuegler received her commission as a Field Artillery officer in the US Army on Monday May 16, 2016. She was commissioned by P/R CPT (Ret.) and now 2LT Tyler Wojtasinski, who was himself commissioned last Spring.

After completing her candidacy during the 120th Candidate Term, 2LT Kuegler variously served as Team Leader, Operations Officer, Executive Officer, and First Sergeant, before becoming our Company Commander. Over her more than three years in the company, she also served as Officer-in-Charge of numerous operations and as an instructor and mentor during many B-12 member training sessions and Candidate Term classes.

As an ROTC cadet, 2LT Kuegler deployed in the summer of 2014 to Senegal as part of the Army’s Cultural Understanding & Language Proficiency (CULP) program, before serving as the Charles River Battalion’s Alpha Company Commander and Assistant Supply Officer during her MSIV year.

After a well-deserved summer off, 2LT Kuegler will report to Fort Sill this Fall for FA BOLC, before moving to her permanent duty station.
