Happy #MidshipmanMonday!

We’re kicking off this week with some motivation from MIDN 2/C Smith!

MIDN Smith hails from Colfax, CA and is majoring in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering here at OSU. Currently, he serves the Battalion as a Squad Leader, SWO Club President, and the Facilities and Maintenance Committee Chair. Upon earning his commission, MIDN Smith would like to serve the Navy as a SWO EDO. When he’s not doing homework or updating Battalion regulations, MIDN Smith just likes to listen to music and chill. When asked what makes NROTC worth it for him, he answered, “NROTC is an opportunity to work with all kinds of people all headed on vastly different paths but still working together to all achieve our different goals.”

Keep it up, MIDN Smith! Thanks for motivating us this week!

Today, 10 November, is the 245th birthday of the United States Marine Corps!

In the air, on land, and sea; for 245 years Marines have held the line and will never cease to do so as long as there is a nation to protect and serve.

Current restrictions keep us from celebrating together but that did not stop Beaver Battalion from conducting a socially distanced cake cutting ceremony yesterday morning in keeping with our traditions. You can view the highlights here and check out the link to see the Commandant’s Birthday Message.

The final week of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month examines the future of Internet-connected devices. NCSAM Week 4 will explore how technological innovations, such as 5G, might impact consumers’ and businesses’ online experiences (e.g. faster speeds and data transmission, and larger attack surfaces for cybercriminals).

Visit cisa.gov/ncsam to learn more.

We will also examine how people and infrastructure can adapt to the continuous evolution of Internet-connected devices moving forward. It is not only necessary to safeguard our personal devices, but all the devices we interact with. No matter what the future brings, everyone needs to be to do their part and #BeCyberSmart to ensure the safety of cyberspace.

This week in U.S. Naval History!

On this day, 21 October 1797, the frigate USS Constitution is launched at Edmund Hartt’s Shipyard in Boston, MA. ‘Old Ironsides’ would see service across the globe and in multiple conflicts, including the Quasi-War, the First Barbary War, and the War of 1812. Today she is a museum ship and the oldest commissioned ship in the U.S. Navy.

Happy #MidshipmanMonday! This week we’re getting after it with MIDN 3/C Howery!

MIDN Howery came from Vancouver, WA to study Nuclear Engineering at OSU and currently serves as the Battalion’s Sub Club treasurer.

She has not decided what she would like to do in the Navy but is determined to develop her leadership skills to effectively serve her country, family, and shipmates.

Outside NROTC, MIDN Howery is a freshman officer for the Society of American Military Engineers and is an Undergraduate Research Assistant at the Radiation Center for the Marcum Research Group. She enjoys swimming and exploring parks and trails with friends and family.

When asked about the most difficult aspect of NROTC, MIDN Howery replied, "I think the hardest part about NROTC is time management. There is always a lot to do and the best thing to do is learn how to thrive in the chaos. I do this by scheduling out my classes, clubs, study hours, workouts, and breaks."

Way to thrive in the chaos, MIDN Howery! Keep it up!

The healthcare industry relies increasingly on Internet-connected devices and solutions to improve patient care, organizational efficiency, speed of crisis response, and much more.The emergence of telemedicine, digital health records, online medical devices, patient wellness apps, and an increasing amount of third parties entering the health supply chain has created many benefits. However, it has also exposed the industry to vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit.

Visit cisa.gov/nscam to learn how to better protect your internet-connected health devices.

The third week of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month delves into the healthcare industry, exploring the vulnerabilities of Internet-connected healthcare devices, and what steps users can take to Protect It and do their part and #BeCyberSmart.

This Week in U.S. Naval History!

USS Nautilus (SSN 571) commissioned in Groton, Conn on this day 30 September in 1954. Nautilus was the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine, breaking records set by previous submarines and illuminating shortcomings in accepted submarine design and construction. She would serve in the Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, and Mediterranean, and would be the first submarine to travel submerged to the North Pole. Today she is a museum ship at the Submarine Force Museum in Groton, Conn.

OSU NROTC midshipmen aspiring to become part of the Navy’s Sea, Air and Land forces recently participated in a SEAL webinar. The webinar covered the history of the SEAL teams and their role in the U.S. Navy. Assignment to the elite SEAL community is an extraordinary feat only achieved by team-oriented individuals with extraordinary drive and character. To apply for a tryout, one must be currently enrolled in the United States Naval Academy, NROTC, or in Officer Candidate School. Midshipmen interested in applying for SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection will be participating in additional webinars to receive mentorship from representatives of the SEAL community.
