Happy #midshipmanmonday everyone!

This week we have MIDN 2/C Gilbert! Originally from Waimanalo, HI, MIDN Gilbert is here at OSU studying Art: Photography and Digital Studio. He is not sure what he wants to do in the Marine Corps yet, but he thinks Artillery might be of interest.

MIDN Gilbert has been very involved during his time here in the Beaver Battalion. Last year he was the Color Sergeant and Boat Shed Manager along with being an active member of the church group Valor. Starting this week, he will be taking over as the PAO for the first half of the school year!

Stay motivated and keep up the hard work MIDN Gilbert!

Yesterday, after nearly 70 years as the Beaver Battalion home, the Quonset Hut was demolished. While the building may no longer be standing at OSU, it will forever stand in the memories of so many men and women who grew to be Navy and Marine Corps officers.

RIP Quonset Hut...

Today we have 2ndLt Josiah Poole!

Originally from Redmond, OR, 2ndLt Poole graduated from OSU in 2019 where he majored in Fish and Wildlife Sciences.

After commissioning in June of 2019 and graduating from The Basic School in April of 2020, he found out that he would be going to school to become a Field Artillery Officer!

He is currently at Fort Sill in Lawton, OK where he is finishing up Field Artillery School. After graduating in October, 2ndLt Poole will be headed to Camp Pendleton in California to begin his career as a trained Field Artillery Officer!

When asked to give advice to current midshipmen, he wrote, “Don’t let failures bring you down. The next few years you will be in an environment that will test your mental and physical limits, you will fail at some things and exceed at others. You will learn and grow more from your failures. My second piece of advice would be no matter how stressed out you get, enjoy your time with your fellow Marines or Sailors around you. Always Remember you are there for your enlisted Sailors and Marines”

Keep up the great work 2ndLt Poole and continue to make the Beaver Battalion proud!!

#Beavsinthefleet

To finish out the week we have 1stLT Paola Phipps. Originally from Sandy, OR, 1stLT Phipps graduated from OSU in 2018 with a degree in Psychology. During her senior year in the Beaver Battalion, she held the position of Battalion Executive Officer.

After commissioning, 1stLT Phipps moved to Quantico, VA, where she completed The Basic School. She then moved to Iwakuni, Japan to work at Marine Air Group 12 (MAG-12) for on the job training, before shortly heading to Camp Johnson, NC for her MOS school: The Basic Manpower Officer Course. After competing her MOS school, she moved back to Japan where she worked as the Squadron Adjutant for Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 12 (MALS-12) for 6 months.

1stLT Phipps is now the Squadron Adjutant at Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 (VMFA-121), still in Iwakuni, Japan.

When asked to give advice to current midshipmen, 1stLT Phipps wrote, “Advice for current MIDN is to work hard and build good habits while in the NROTC program. What you put into the program is what you get back. Be humble, be hungry, and never forget that you are working your way to leading Marines and Sailors. It’s never going to be about you, it’s about how you can facilitate the success of your Marines. Regardless of whether or not you receive your service selection preference (SWO, SUB, Aviation) or MOS preference (Marines), make the most of the opportunity to serve your country.”

Keep making the Beaver Battalion proud 1stLT Phipps!

#beavsinthefleet

To start this week, we have LTJG Elijah McCarty!

Originally from Portland, OR, LTJG McCarty graduated from OSU in 2018 with a BS in Construction Engineering Management. During his senior year he held the Battalion Commanding Officer billet and was selected to be a submariner.

Shortly after getting to the Navy Nuclear Power Training Command (NNPTC), LTJG McCarty developed a shellfish allergy, medically disqualifying him from serving on submarines. He was smart enough to receive the offer to instead serve the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program at Naval Reactors Headquarters in Washington DC. After completion of Power School and Bettis Reactor Engineering School, he began his job as a Naval Reactors Engineer at Naval Reactors Headquarters.

When asked to give advice to current midshipmen, LTJG McCarty wrote the following:

“As the focus of the great-power competition shifts to Asia, the adversaries we face today are aggressive in their development of military technology and forces. It is imperative that we continue to develop our Navy’s capabilities in not only technology, but in our sailors and marines as well. Without well-trained operators, the Navy and Marine Corps cannot take advantage of advances in technology to its fullest extent. Understand that as a Midshipmen, you are the future leaders of our military. At times, it may be easy to succumb to the monotony of school and ROTC and take the easy route of complacency. With this, remember that commissioning into the Navy or Marine Corps is a representation of the Nation’s trust in you to provide the leadership and knowledge necessary to ensure that our sailors are trained and well-prepared for the unknown challenges that our Nation faces in the future. Study hard and care for yourself and those around you. The education and skills received from OSU NROTC will prepare you to step up to the duty you will be accepting for your Nation.”

Thanks for making the Beaver Battalion proud LTJG McCarty! Keep up the hard work!

#BeavsintheFleet part 3:

This week we have 2nd LT Nicole Carlson, originally from Vancouver, WA. In 2019, she graduated from OSU with a BS in Kinesiology and commissioned into the United States Marine Corps.

After commissioning, 2nd LT Carlson attended and then graduated from The Basic School in Quantico, VA on April 1st, 2020. She is now attending the Combat Engineer Officer Course where she is learning how to be a Combat Engineer (1302 MOS). Following the completion of this school, she will be heading to MWSS-271 at Cherry Point, NC where she will serve as a Combat Engineer Platoon Commander.

2nd LT Carlson was the Battalion Student Commanding Officer her senior year here at OSU. During her time here, she was also a member of the Color Guard, soccer team, volleyball team and was an outstanding mentor for many of the younger midshipmen.

When asked to give advice to current midshipmen, she wrote the following: “Leadership is found at all levels: understand that you can impact those around you without holding a “leadership” position. Take advantage of that and step forward. Be human and be humble. Regardless of who you are, you have both lessons to learn and lessons to share. Don’t become too wrapped up in your own success that you miss opportunities to help others grow.”

Semper Fi and keep making the Beaver Battalion proud 2nd LT Carlson!

#BeavsintheFleet part 2:

This week we have ENS Reggie Varesio! She is currently the OI Division Officer on the USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62), home-ported in sunny San Diego, CA.

The OI division is responsible for operating radars, navigation equipment, and communications equipment, and for disseminating the needed combat information to assess the ships current tactical situation.

Born and raised in Clackamas, OR, ENS Varesio graduated from OSU in June 2019 with a BS in biology. She joined the Beaver Battalion as a college programmer in 2015 and picked up advanced standing after her sophomore year (no scholarship). While in the Beaver Battalion, ENS Varesio held multiple billets including Public Affairs Officer and Operations Officer. She was both a kind and encouraging member of our battalion.

After commissioning, she completed the Basic Division Officer Course, Ammo Supply School, and Junior Officer of the Deck school before reporting to her first ship. When she reported, the USS Fitzgerald was actually home-ported in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Because of this, ENS Varesio was able to go through the Panama Canal during the change of home-port to San Diego.

Thanks for making OSU proud ENS Varesio and good luck with the rest of your SWO qualifications!

#MidshipmanMonday

This week we have MIDN 2/C Devany. MIDN Devany is a Marine option, originally from Seattle, WA, studying oceanography here at OSU. This summer he is back home working at a sailing marina doing boat maintenance. It never hurts to be a Marine with some good boat knowledge!!

In the Marine Corps, Devany hopes to be a pilot, flying KC-130s. Here at OSU, he was a member of the color guard and in his spare time he enjoys hiking, camping, and sailing.

MIDN Devany is a hard working, motivated midshipman with a bright future ahead of him. Semper Fi and keep up the good work MIDN Devany!!

NOTE: COVID-19 is to blame for the uncut hair in the first image.

Today we’re starting a new segment on our page where we recognize past Beaver Battalion midshipmen who are now working hard in the fleet: #BeavsInTheFleet

This week we have jet pilot LTJG Paige Westoby! Originally from Bend, OR, she graduated from OSU in 2017 with a BS in Exercise and Sports Science. While in the NROTC program, Westoby earned an advanced standing spot after her sophomore year (meaning she was not on scholarship) and eventually became the Battalion Commanding Officer her senior year.

Ever since she was 10 years old, she knew she wanted to grow up and be a Naval Aviator. She even earned her private pilot’s license in 2013, well before she was selected to be a Naval Aviator.

After commissioning in 2017, she went to Pensacola, FL where she did well enough in Primary flight training in the T-6B that she was selected for the jet pipeline. This last week, on July 24th, LTJG Westoby earned her soft wings and is now headed off to learn how to fly the F/A-18 Super Hornet!

When asked to give advice to current and future midshipmen, she said the following: “Don’t allow your background to limit the goals that you set for yourself. In my opinion, the most important qualities of an officer in the Navy are integrity, pride, and grit. Work hard and push yourself through the difficult times and never forget the foundation of your support system. You have a command at OSU NROTC that is prioritizing your success and provides opportunities to you that your civilian students aren’t offered, utilize those opportunities to the max extent.”

Enjoy flying those Super Hornets LTJG Westoby! You’ve worked hard and earned it!
