South Dakota State University’s Army ROTC Cadets continue to reach out to the community even through the Pandemic. Though COVID-19 has led to some difficulty in terms of setting up in person visitations, many high schools have worked with the program in order to setup virtual information sessions via zoom for Cadets to meet with high schoolers interested in the military or Army ROTC. Cadets Peterson, Young, and Warren were able to coordinate with schools even as far as those in Sparta, WI. These were the Lincoln high school, Watertown high school, and Sparta high school respectively. Thank you for your assistance in continuing to develop our program.

SDSU's 9-person Ranger Challenge team was hard at work this week in Camp Ripley, MN for competition!

Ranger Challenge tests Cadets on skills like medical evacuation, hand grenade throwing, call for indirect fire, marksmanship, and weapons assembly. As well as testing physical and mental toughness through grueling physical fitness events throughout the day.

SDSU finished 3rd overall with a decisive victory in weapons assembly. The top 3 teams were often within a few points or seconds of each other in each event.

Words of encouragement from an alumni: My very first pt test in rotc, I got down to do my pushups, and will all of my strength I busted out...5. I was embarrassed and ashamed until the pms, ltc holter came up to me and said good job! Now set your own goal for beating that next time. I'll never forget it. Don't worry abt other people's score or career or path. You can look to them as goals or motivation, but don't compare. My mindset from that day forward was just to beat my own score. Before I left the program I was getting 300+ on the apft. (After being told by another cadet that i just didn't have the body to make 300) I have loved my career path, and try to focus on making my career better, and being a better officer than I was the day before. Be the best you. Not the best someone else. Focus on changing you into just a better You. But still you. You have something to offer the army, your soldiers, the rotc program that no one else can. -class of '08
I heard sad news the other day that Arch Telgren had passed away. Many a cadet that passed through the SDSU Army ROTC program between 1968 and 1991 had the pleasure of working with Arch....and God help you if you didn't get your administrative paperwork back to him in a timely manner....he'd let you know about it. He always had our best interests at heart, even though sometimes we didn't. He was a good friend and he will be sorely missed!
