Transcript Cadets train to learn survival technics in order to be able to be ready for any situation. Weekly training sessions test the stamina of cadets such as this one.Photo by Gilbert Sifuentes. Stamina. Guts Teamwork, "be all that you can be" has been the army's slogan, and students held true to that tradition. Sixty-five students participated in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps program to become an officer in the United States Army. "I like to get down in the mud and get dirty," saidCadet Sgt. 3rd Class Dawn Levack. The army pushes each individual to his or her own limitations to test strenth and determination. The limit was three to five hours of physical training a week, a two-hour leadership lab and up to three hours of class lab. An excellent cadet and officer was one that was well-educated, versatile, physically fit, morally upright and dedicated to the The batallion RECON spends its extra time practicing for the annual drill competitions. The drill competitions tests the performance accuracy and the mobility of the unit as a whole. Photo by Gilbert Sifuentes. An elite core of ROTC oil nets m.ikrs up the honor batallion. These officers are noted only lor their skill as offi< ers, butasstudentsaswell. Photo by Gilbert Sifuentes, Cadets in ROTC take on some serious BASIC TRAINING defense of the country. Chief Advent Sgt. Tommy Armour said, "quality, not quantity" was what the ROTC program was interested in. The program, though, was not just limited to students whose goal was to enter the army. A student enrolled could take any of the nonadvanced classes up to the third year. "I'd reccommend the basic course if for no other reason than an unusual way to fulfill the P . E. requirement," said Shaffer. "A lot of students come into the program with no intention of continuing on to their third year. Our best students are involved in other activities." Those, who do go on, must sign a contract stating upon graduation they will become an officer in the U. S. Army. They receive a sub sistence allowance a month. Fourteen students in ROTC were given a scholarship and received $225 per semester for books, as well as paid tuition. Women also played a role in the training of officers. "For the army now, women in service is not a big deal anymore. They are as dedicated, intelligent and resourceful as any of the men," said Armour. Other units are often branded with sexist problems. Cadet Sgt. 1st CLass Lisa Vinson said the officers were supportive of the women on campus. Others such as Cadet Staff Sgt. Don Nguyen said, "I read about it. It's not fair, Everybody here is the same color- green.'-Adam King ^^H I ROTC cadets learn how to stalk their prey. Drills and practices such as this one performed in UH trees are necessary to sharpen the skills of these army officers.P/wfo by Gilbert Sifuentes.
