"ROTC is the reason that I am in school.  It allows me to serve my country and get my college education at the same time.  I am even able to do this with a wife and two children at home.  In addition to normal classes, I am also the ROTC webmaster.  On top of everything else, I have prior military service.  The ROTC SMP program allows me to be in the National Guard and ROTC at the same time.  I also currently work at Marist as a student worker in the Telecommunications department.  This supplements learning within my major and assists what I plan to do in the Army."

Major: Criminal Justice with Minor in Psychology
Interests: Spending time with friends, listening to music, fishing, and playing sports
"I joined ROTC because of my strong desire to serve in the military. I really enjoy being a part of the ROTC program here at Marist because of the personal relationships we are able to build with both each other and our instructors. Through the ROTC program, I have been able to attend the United States Army Airborne School and the United States Army Air Assault School. In addition to this, I traveled to Ft. Lewis, WA for the Leadership Development and Assessment Course (LDAC) where I trained with cadets from all over the country. The leadership experience I have received through ROTC has greatly improved my confidence in being a leader and has prepared me to work well with others in both the military and civilian lifestyles."
