Article about an IIT/UIC NROTC alumni

Just thought I'd drop this link here for any considering medical or graduate school out of ROTC, a possibility for MECEPs, OCs, and Mids. www.usuhs.edu
I saw down the timeline you guys shared the story about the P-8A's first deployment. IIT NROTC 2010 Alum Keith Soss was the pilot that performed the takeoff on one of the first two planes that left on 29NOV13 for this inaugural deployement. Here he is saying goodbye to his son that day!
Great to see NROTC IIT Doing well. Class of 09 here.
