UTEP ARMY ROTC Fighting Miner Battalion

UTEP ARMY ROTC Fighting Miner Battalion Welcome to the Official Army ROTC Fighting Miner Battalion page! Army ROTC is an excellent career opportunity for individuals with the desire to learn leadership and organizational skills that will serve them throughout life.

With the rising costs of education, ROTC offers excellent scholarship opportunities for young men and women. Our goal at UTEP is to make Army ROTC as visible and accessible as possible, while creating a culture of excellence to offer the best possible environment for cadets/students to train and develop. Our Military Science faculty members are "Career Counselor" assisting cadets/students navigate their way through the challenges of College Life. Our learning focus is on "Officership," and we will continue to produce quality men and women as Second Lieutenants into the best Army in the world.

An inspiring member of The UTEP ROTC Program. Originally an El Paso native, graduating from Chapin High School, Duran chose to enlist in the Army National Guard in 2017 because of the opportunities for success and growth the Army offered. Cadet Duran hopes to commission as an aviation officer and fly both in the military and the civilian field once retired. He has chosen to study Criminal Justice due to his long-time interest in the judicial and court systems. Duran's favorite thing about El Paso is its closely connected community that is accepting of any and everyone no matter where you are from or what you look like. Cadet Duran credits his mother as his motivation for success, as she is one of the hardest workers he has ever met. He is also extremely grateful to his mother as she came to the US from Guatemala to provide him a better life and ensure that he would never have to go through what she did as a child.

03/18/2021

In observation of women’s history month, the Fighting Miner Battalion would like to recognize their very own Cadet Leila Sanchez. Cadet Sanchez attributed her early influence to join ROTC to her friends in Advanced Individual Training. “The program has helped push myself mentally, giving me confidence, while enabling me to serve my community.” She garners motivation from her friends who have taught her the value of a strong work ethic and dedication. Cadet Sanchez hopes to branch into the Adjutant General Corps where she will lead soldiers as a Second Lieutenant. It has been a remarkable journey to see this Cadet grow as a person, and as a professional, as she looks to what is in store for the future as a leader in the United States Army. Picks up for this Fighting Miner! 🤙

Cadet Highlight: Deon Barbee
.
An inspiring leader within the Fighting Miner Battalion, Cadet Deon Barbee takes great pride for the program, his community, and most importantly his family. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Cadet Barbee joined the Army in 2007 due to falling on hard times after losing his job and having a four-month-old baby to provide for, a decision he has never come to regret. Barbee and his family were stationed in Fort Bliss, Texas where they have come to love as home. Like many El Paso natives, he considers El Paso as "a large city with a small city mentality.” Cadet Barbee took advantage of the UTEP ROTC's Green to Gold program and currently serves on Active Duty whilst maintaining status as a Cadet and going to school full-time. Cadet Barbee is currently pursuing a Master's in Intelligence and National Security Studies (INSS). He hopes to commission into the Medical Service Corp, obtain a second master’s degree in healthcare management, and attend Ranger school to earn the coveted Ranger Tab. Cadet Barbee credits his success both inside and outside the military to his older brother, who has played a pivotal father figure and role model for his life. His wife and children also have given him the direction and motivation needed to be successful. Picks up for this Fighting Miner!

The race isn't for the fast or the strong, but those who endure to the end. To be among the few victory is assured. To preserve is the greatest challenge to accept. “The point is whether or not I improved over yesterday. In long-distance running the only opponent you have to beat is yourself, the way you used to be.” – Haruki Murakami

UTEP ROTC had a success lab this week. The cadets learned the proper techniques and rules of Tactical Combat Casualty Care and demonstrated in front of their instructors what they learned. It’s an important lab that involves saving a life on the battle field. It was great to see these cadets learn and understand such an important skill. Great job cadets! You all learn quick! ⛏
Special thank you to 2LT Kolodgy and the volunteers for helping out the cadets!
