Today, Cadet Tucker Hill graduated from the U.S. Army Air Assault School! CDT Hill is junior in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Princeton. Air Assault School is a 10-day course designed to prepare Soldiers for missions that call for the use of transportation and assault helicopters. It is a physically and mentally demanding course as Soldiers are required to handle heavy equipment and perform dangerous tasks under extremely stressful conditions. Congratulations, CDT Hill!

This week’s workout of the week comes from CDT McManamon! He’s demonstrating his “DIY weight sled created using an old wheelbarrow, a little leather, and some rope. Used cinderblocks for weight, but obviously anything can work. Definitely recommend for preparing for the ACFT and a good lower body workout!”
Thanks, CDT McManamon!

"My past four years at Rutgers Camden have been an incredible learning and growing
opportunity for me. A few highlights of my time at Rutgers Camden have been my involvement
in Student Government and getting to meet amazing students and faculty that have changed my
life.
ROTC has always been a key part of my college experience, and I am thankful for all the cadets
and cadre over the past four years that took time to develop me, both in school and at
Advanced Camp at Fort Knox in 2019.
I am incredibly excited to lead Soldiers and as a Second Lieutenant I look forward to meeting
and leading my platoon. I have learned that leadership in the Army is a constant challenge yet
extremely rewarding!
Some of my career goals include graduating Ranger School, Airborne School, Air Assault
School, earning an Expert Infantryman Badge and achieving the rank of Colonel." -CDT Eric Flanegin, '20. Every day until commissioning we'll be featuring a different member of the class of 2020 and their reflections about their time in the program with special glimpses of how they looked before they went through it.

05/22/2020

"The last 4 years of being a part of Rowan's ROTC program were truly a remarkable experience. I came into the program as the private fresh out of basic training, with the desire to expand upon my worldview of how the Army operates. Each year the fundamentals of leadership had a larger impact on me, evolving into something that allowed me to focus on helping others achieve success instead of just myself. Performing well tactically and physically instills confidence in the individual, but there is also an amazing sense of accomplishment that comes from helping others overcome a steep hurdle in their journey to becoming effective leaders as well. For future leaders reading this, please remember that the disposition of those appointed under you, ultimately shape who you are as a leader. Do your best to build trust with them, and give them the tools necessary to become the best that they can be. My hopes for the future are to maintain and strengthen this resolve in myself, going into my future position as a platoon leader. I am sure that in this new venture, that there will be even more people counting on me to perform my best. This only fires me up to meet and exceed any expectations that come to me." -CDT Daniel King, '20. Every day until commissioning we'll be featuring a different member of the class of 2020 and their reflections about their time in the program with special glimpses of how they looked before they went through it. Thank you for your contributions to the program, CDT King!

"Over my past four years at Rowan I have truly learned so much about myself, my major, and the Army, thanks to the years of mentorship from Cadre and professors. I have made some lifelong friendships, most of which from the ROTC program. I look forward to applying my knowledge and work ethic as an Aviation platoon leader in the NJ Army National Guard." -CDT Matthew Tavarone, '20. Every day until commissioning we'll be featuring a different member of the class of 2020 and their reflections about their time in the program with special glimpses of how they looked before they went through it.

"The past four years have been an adventure, intermittently jet-setting me around the globe before returning me to the longest home I've ever known. Princeton University has been full of challenges, but the opportunities to grow and develop through those challenges remain unparalleled. I'm most grateful for its incredible people--the dining staff who have memorized our orders; the building services who have greeted us every day; the college administrators who have comforted us through moments of weakness; the mentors and professors who have coached us to abandon the limits we assign ourselves; and beyond measure, our fellow cadets, who have sat, sprinted, and stood shoulder to shoulder with us through it all. That sense of teamwork and community motivates me to serve as I commission into the Army. I look forward to putting my skills and knowledge into practice for the greatest of all teams!" -CDT Caleb Visser, '20. Every day until commissioning we'll be featuring a different member of the class of 2020 and their reflections about their time in the program with special glimpses of how they looked before they went through it.

"My time in Tiger Company has been the most formative part of my four years at Princeton. I can say with real pride that I challenged myself in ROTC and failed at nearly everything I ever tried. Through those experiences I learned the most important lesson Princeton ever could have left me with - that what stands in the way becomes the way. I'm excited to commission in June and serve on Active Duty." -CDT Eliza Ewing, '20.

"I'm proud of the challenges I've overcome the past four years in Tiger Company. Some of my most taxing ordeals — Basic Camp, Ranger Challenge, water polo, and surgery — are now the memories I'm the most grateful for. Even though I still have a lot to learn, I'm looking forward to AG BOLC this summer and then to serving as a Company Executive Officer for an Army Reserves unit in Pennsylvania." -CDT Kasey Bersh, '20.

Every week during the summer we'll feature a different cadet-created workout. Do it yourself and tag us! This week's comes from Tiger Co's incoming c/1SG Jason Kim. Thanks CDT Kim! -- "Here's a short little routine that I try to do each day as a supplement to other workouts (or as a thing to do even on non-workout days). It's a good way to maintain your APFT even during times like reading period or finals when you don't have much time to workout: 30 pull ups, 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 1 minute of lemon squeezers, 1 minute of v-sit scissor ups, 1 minute of ab circles (30 seconds each direction), 1 minute of lemon squeezers. You can always change up the exact reps or time based on your needs."

05/12/2020

"Being a student and cadet at Princeton University these last four years have been an extraordinary gift. Every class I took, every organization I was a part of, every challenge or crisis dealt with was an opportunity to learn, to develop, and to become better thinker, leader, and person. But I will always be most grateful for the people I’ve met along the way – the mentors, teammates, peers, and friends who have not only left me with cherished and unforgettable memories, but who have also constantly challenged me to be better, and who have helped shape me into the person I am today.



I am looking forward to commissioning in June as an active-duty Armor officer! I hope that I’ll get a chance to serve as a tank or scout platoon leader, and also meet and learn from the soldiers and officers who have also dedicated their lives and careers to others and ideas greater than themselves."
-CDT Leo Li '20 Every day until commissioning we'll be featuring a different member of the class of 2020 and their reflections about their time in the program with special glimpses of how they looked before they went through it. Thank you for your contributions to the program, CDT Li!

05/11/2020

"Princeton Army ROTC has been a great and challenging experience. From my experience as an MSI, I have grown so much in my confidence, my ability to take and give feedback effectively, and in my command presence. Earlier this semester I realized the way I talk about my friends is different than others. I get to say my friends are loyal, respectful, honorable, and selfless. I have been able to fail, often, and through that vulnerability, made friends who both literally and figuratively pick me up off the ground. Thank you Tiger Battalion for the experiences. I'm excited to commission as an Active Duty MI officer, learn more, and make a difference."
-CDT Anne Marie Wright '20 Every day until commissioning on June 2 we'll be featuring a different member of the class of 2020 and their reflections about their time in the program with special glimpses of how they looked before they came to the program.
