"My education and ROTC experience set the stage for an exciting career as an Army Military Intelligence officer. Achieving my gold Second Lieutenant bars was one of the most significant events in my life. Those gold bars gave me a tremendous and rewarding opportunity to serve my country. I am thankful for the opportunity to participate in the Army ROTC program."
