We’ve had a lot of fun and done a lot of work over the summer, preparing for the upcoming year and the next Candidate Term. Some pictures are below.

Congratulations to P/R SFC Bruno-Metzger!

We’re happy to report that our Drill Sergeant, Joe Bruno-Metzger, graduated on May 16, 2016 from the Army’s Air Assault School as a member of Class 25-16.

After completing ten days of sling loads, ruck marches, layout inspections, obstacle courses, rappelling, fast roping, and exams, he was awarded his Air Assault Badge, thereby following in the footsteps of many past B-12 members who have had the opportunity to attend Air Assault, Airborne, Northern Warfare, or one of the other Army schools during their time as ROTC cadets.

As our Training NCO, he will return to the company this Fall with a great deal of new knowledge and skills to incorporate into the various training sessions and operations we have planned for the Fall, as well as into the upcoming Spring 2017 Candidate Term.

Congratulations to the 123rd!

We are proud to welcome Seth Bakes, Joe Bruno-Metzger, and Aleksandra Pirog as the newest members of our company. All three have proven themselves during Candidate Term and are ready to take on the responsibility of performing as B-12 cadre and training the next group of candidates.

LDAC SUCCESS

We want to take a minute to recognize some of our members for their accomplishments this summer.

While the rest of us were working on Member Training with our local alumni and assets, our three senior members spent much of the summer at LDAC and various other Army training schools. Although we certainly expected them to succeed, we had no idea just how impressive their performances would actually be.

MEMBER TRAINING FINALE

Although Member Training never really ends, this weekend was our last formal portion of the curriculum before the school year starts up. Here are a few pictures:

Now that our Senior members are off at LDAC and CTLT, our alumni and other local assets have stepped in to ensure that the remainder of Member Training is completed before the end of the Summer. Below are pictures from a recent training session:
