Our first cadet spot light for the year with Kelly Godsey one of our cadets in the nursing program
What's it like being in the nursing program and in ROTC?
“It’s definitely difficult being in both the nursing program and ROTC. It is a tremendous amount of work, and it requires a lot of organization and hard effort. But, it also is very rewarding, being able to always remember that all of this work will result in being able to serve in the Army as a nurse.”

What's your favorite part about joining ROTC? 
“My favorite part of ROTC is the community. I have the largest support system I have ever had, and the other cadets, as well as cadre, really help push me when I need it. It’s a family I love to see every day!”

What are your plans after commissioning?
“After commissioning, I hope to branch into the Army Nurse Corps. I want to be stationed wherever the Army needs the most help, but I would also love to go to JBLM or Fort Carson. My plan is to stay in the Army and go through a doctorate program in the nursing field, so I hope to stay active for a long time, and be stationed in many different places.”

What was the most surprising thing you learned after joining ROTC?
“The most surprising thing I learned in ROTC so far is how important perseverance is. Often, I can feel very overwhelmed with the amount of work nursing and ROTC requires, but perseverance is what helps me move forward. Sometimes things suck, sometimes things hurt, but if I can remind myself to put one foot in front of the other, just like the cadets around me, I feel one step closer to success.”

Two weeks ago the Lobo Battalion conducted training of TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care). This training was facilitated by medical service providers within our community. In contrast to previous semesters, this year the UNM Theater Department provided Actors and Actresses with “injuries” for our cadets. A huge thank you to our trainers for invaluable knowledge and to the UNM Theater Department for making our training more realistic! The full video of the training is in the link in our bio!

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Patrick Conroy, our dear friend and benefactor. For those of you that do not know, in 2008 Patrick established a generous endowment for the ROTC departments at UNM. He created the endowment in honor of his cousin James Whalen who was killed in WWII. Many Army cadets have received the Whalen Awards for performance since. Patrick was one of UNM's greatest supporters. He lived in Southern California and recruited regularly for UNM and the ROTC programs. Patrick bled cherry and silver and will be dearly missed.

What do you get when you cross a Second Lieutenant, a Fire Fighter, and a Sheriff’s Deputy? Sounds like the start of a joke, but this is no joke, it is a family dedicated to service. Last week Wyatt Starr commissioned as Second Lieutenant in the US Army as an Infantry officer. His parents Sergeant Chris Starr and Lieutenant Laurianna Sargent pinned on his Second Lieutenant rank during our commissioning ceremony. Lieutenant Starr’s family is a picture of service to our country and our local community. Lieutenant Starr will begin his Army career when he attends the Infantry Basic Officer Leader course early next year. He hopes to follow in his father’s foot-steps and be assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division. His father is currently serving as Deputy Sheriff for Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department. Wyatt’s mother is a paramedic with Albuquerque Fire and Rescue. We are honored by their collective service and thank them for their dedication to serving.

This past weekend, our MS3s conducted a joint field training exercise (FTX) with cadets from New Mexico Military Institute in preparation for Advanced Camp. It’s safe to say that all cadets came home with something new learned. A huge thanks to @nmmi.army.rotc for allowing us to train alongside them!

#alumnispotlight Today’s Alumni Spotlight is highlighting MAJ Gina Thomas, who is currently serving in the 3d Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) as the Brigade S4 in El Paso, Texas. Take a look at her story below:

I attended UNM and AROTC 2004-2008. The college experience helped me build my professional skills that I still utilize today. My AROTC experience was phenomenal. Learning tactics, completing the Ranger Challenge, completing the Bataan Death March and running the game football from UNM to NMSU are some of the most memorable moments. I continue to have life long friends and mentors from that time that still push me in my professional goals today. UNM AROTC created a path for my future, both professionally and personally, that I will never forget.

I entered the Army as a Transportation Officer in 2008 once I completed my Psychology degree at UNM and transitioned into a Logistics Officer. Additionally, I received my Master of Social Work degree and worked in several Social Work jobs during my time in the military.

My advice is that building relationship skills is the key to success in any profession that you undertake. People won’t remember the work you did but they will remember the way you treated them.

For this weeks #cadetspotlight we would like to showcase our appreciation for MSIII CDT Victoria Anderson. CDT Anderson worked closely with her national guard unit to provide much needed COVID-19 relief here in New Mexico. Some of her duties included COVID Testing and working in Field Hospitals on Reservations across the state.

“The most rewarding part about my COVID-19 relief work with the guard was being able to help people in a diverse community that wouldn’t have been able to get help otherwise. Another really rewarding moment was receiving artwork from one of our patients and a challenge coin from the Governor of the Navajo Pueblo, it really made me feel like my work was appreciated.

My favorite part about being in the guard are the drill weekends and learning from the experienced officers and providers in my unit. The knowledge they provide gives me a solid base to succeed in my ROTC career. The military helped me realize the career I wanted to have. Which allowed me to create a clear path for my future. Through the ROTC and guard connections I’ve made I have a plan and the support I need to achieve my goals.”
