On May 22, 2021 the Golden Eagle Battalion held the Commissioning Ceremony of Spring 2021. These new Lieutenants were met with many obstacles over the last year and a half with COVID-19, but overcame these obstacles with resilience and tenacity. We appreciate all your hard work and determination, and we are so excited to see what else you will accomplish in the future.

In these photos you will see our new second Lieutenants swearing an oath of office upon commissioning, receiving their first salute, or having their gold bars pinned onto their uniform.

Congratulations to the 20, newly commissioned second Lieutenants!

today is a #mumentalhealthday, so here is a friendly reminder to take care of your self, your health and your battle buddies 💛

The end of the semester is coming quickly, and now is the time to look at all of the accomplishments you brought to the table this semester, GEB! Stay motivated, look out for each other and keep the faith 💪 We have each others backs in the long run, that’s what family is for!

• good training • good food • good friends •

GEB Recondo invited the @marquettenrotc midshipmen and marine options, as well as the @afrotc_det930 air force cadets to join us Wednesday for platoon level tactics. It was awesome to see the huge turnout of participants and watch a TRI-ROTC PLATOON ATTACK!

We had hot chow at the objective waiting for everyone once they hit their LOA and cleared the area of enemy threat. Go team!

hey, @afrotc_det930 @marquettenrotc thanks for stopping by our neck of the woods 😉

And warm congratulations to our new Recondo CO, CDT Berenz!

Sandhurst ‘21: The GEB Edit
🏆🦅🏆
The 9-man spent last week at West Point competing against 43 other teams for a slice of Sandhurst prestige.

The team pulled through with 18th place, celebrating their third consecutive invitation to Sandhurst.

MG Evans and CSM Gan observed some of the GEB lanes over the course of the weekend, making the event even more memorable for our soon to be commissioned MSIV cadets on the team.

As always, #GELTW

CFTX looked a little different this year, with 8 platoons across the task force joining together for a weekend of platoon level tactics at Fort McCoy🌲

All cadets committed to a 14 day period of self quarantine and monitoring to ensure a safe and healthy status prior to training. We were also lucky to have 68W Army medics and Army Nurses to help monitor and ensure the health and safety of our cadets while training.

From Thursday-Sunday, cadets were challenged and assessed on their leadership skills and tactics knowledge in missions such as Raid, Ambush, Defense, Movement to Contact and Platoon Attack.

Here’s a few highlights! CDT’s Directo (MSIII), Radka and Horman (MSII), Hansen and Prince (MSI) were all coined Sunday for outstanding performance during their time in the field. Congrats!

Nothing wraps up the semester like a successful FTX, time to go crush finals! #GELTW #3rdbdearmyrotc #leaderswanted #finalsarecoming

1LT Paikowski graduated from UW-Milwaukee and commissioned through the Golden Eagle Battalion in 2017! We are so proud to see him claim his winning title in the 2021 Best Ranger Competition.

Best Ranger is a 3 day competition that tests the resilience, strength and capability of ranger buddy teams from across the nation. 1LT Paikowski and his teammate 1LT Keys (alum of Eagle Battalion at UW-Lacrosse) demonstrated their skill over the weekend claiming their spot as the top Rangers in the Army. Way to represent our task force, gentlemen! RLTW!

“Once the water hits your knees, get in the boat. And grab an oar”

Our Sandhurst team is keeping their skills strong and pushing for gold this week at @westpoint_usma

Team Captain Oldendorf, a senior at MSOE, can be heard directing his team with the above quote...but we feel like it applies to many more situations in life than just this! When things get tough, the only good way is forward. Start paddling!

With CFTX at Fort McCoy this weekend and the ongoing Sandhurst competition in New York, we’re working hard to accomplish the mission. Stay in the fight toward the end of the semester, GEB!

We don’t need to tell you what we’re made of....

You’ll see it right when you walk through our door, when we’re up in the morning running on campus, when we’re in the library studying, when we’re putting extra training time in on the weekends.

To us, leadership and excellence are the foundation of everything we do; every GEB cadet finds their own unique way to live leadership excellence out.

MSI CDT Taranto has brought five (5!) friends interested in Army ROTC at Marquette to PT, lab and service committee events. He earned a battalion coin for being the top influence thus far when showing other students what leadership and excellence mean in his life as a GEB cadet.

Interested in ROTC? Come visit and see what place leadership excellence takes in your life! #GELTW

ROTC Student: 'Training Helped Me Navigate the Pandemic'

Spectrum News 1 recently paid a visit to the MU Old Gym to ask CDT Palmer Blas about his experience weathering the COVID-19 pandemic not only as a Marquette student, but a GEB Army ROTC cadet as well. Commissioning into the Active Duty Army in May, CDT Blas will be a Field Artillery Officer and attend his BOLC at Fort Sill. During times of inconsistency and change, the process of graduating college and commissioning into the Army can seem like an insurmountable feat to undertake. Quitting is the easy way out; CDT Blas, like many of his peers, knows that isn't the route of integrity.

On discussing the quick adaptation the GEB had to make to keep the battle rhythm steady, CDT Blas notes, "We quickly took hold of the situation and continued doing what the army does without sacrificing too much training time...we made sure we stayed the course and kept up our training, even if it had to be virtually.” He affirms that the structure and purpose of working toward goals in ROTC has offered him the chance to carry on when it would otherwise be easy to fall out and lose faith.

The heart of the Army beats to it's soldier's dedication in the fight. CDT Blas is just one of the many cadets at the GEB who have remained committed to their future commission through times of turbulence over the past year when they could have easily given up. Thank you to Megan Carpenter at Spectrum 1 for visiting and taking the time to understand what drives us to wake up a little earlier, push a little harder, and continue to excel each day. Golden Eagles Lead the Way! #GELTW #3rdbdearmyrotc #leaderswanted #finalsarecoming

This looks like such a supportive community. Its nice to see such passion and drive on this page! It actually reminds me of a documentary I saw recently called Above the Best. The film tells the incredible true story of Army pilots in the Afghan war risking their lives to save their fellow soldiers on the ground. I thought the film did a wonderful job of highlighting the level of commitment, loyalty, and selflessness needed to serve and protect. Thought I'd share! You can watch the film on Amazon or iTunes if you're interested!
