Yesterday was truly a bittersweet day for the GGBN. We celebrated the accomplishments of the Army’s 12 newest Second Lieutenants in a virtual commissioning ceremony. Congratulations 2LTs! You are more than well equipped to tackle the challenges that lay ahead of you with integrity, compassion, and the utmost professionalism. Your cadre is proud of your accomplishments to date and look forward to seeing you accomplish even more in the future!

We also said goodbye to our Professor of Military Science and our Senior Military Science Instructor. LTC Gross is heading to State College, PA to lead the Penn State University Army ROTC program after 4 years at Canisius Army ROTC. MSG Burgos is retiring after over 20 years of service to his country. Our entire program has benefited immeasurably from the leadership and experience of these outstanding Soldiers. Thank you for your service and best of luck in your future endeavors!

Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

The holiday originally honored only those lost while fighting in the Civil War. But during World War I the United States found itself embroiled in another major conflict, and over time the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in all wars, including World War II, The Vietnam War, The Korean War, and conflicts all the way through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Please join us as we honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that others may be free.

We would like to say congratulations to GGBN alum and @canisiusalumni 2LT Trevor Hamm! 2LT Hamm recently graduated from the US Army Ranger school at Fort Benning, GA. Ranger School is is of the the toughest training courses for which a Soldier can volunteer. Army Rangers are experts in leading Soldiers on difficult missions - and to do this, they need rigorous training. For more than two months, Ranger students train to exhaustion, pushing the limits of their minds and bodies. 2LT Hamm is from Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from @canisius_college with a BA in Entrepreneurship. He commissioned as an Active Duty Infantry officer in 2019 and attended the Infantry Basic Officer Leader Course prior to starting Ranger School. He will be stationed with the 1st Infantry Division also known as The “Big Red One” at Fort Riley, Kansas. Keep up the great work 2LT Hamm!

As we grind further into this unprecedented virtual learning time GGBN offered a different opportunity to connect with one another and cadre. During our normal Leadership Lab time we held “Coffee with Cadre” via Zoom. This provided a virtual discussion room for GGBN to catch up with one another and discuss any issues or questions cadets might have. It was a lot of fun overall and GGBN is staying strong!
