What made you want to join Army ROTC?Besides ROTC, do you participate in any athletics or extracurricular activities at Moravian?
I am a member of the men's lacrosse team here at Moravian College.

Every American has a duty to serve their country in some way and I believe mine is in the U.S. Army.

What is your best tip to prepare for Army ROTC before starting college?
You need to be prepared to get up early and go to bed late. You will also need to learn how to manage your time and make the most out of the time you have. Early morning hours still count.

Can you describe how ROTC fits into your day to day as a freshmen in college?
It's PT in the early Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings, then practice in the afternoon.

What is your favorite thing about Army ROTC so far?
My favorite things about ROTC are the experiences that we do in the program from the training from PT in the morning to Field Traning Exercise (FTX) to assembling a M240B.

What excites you most about your future in Army ROTC?
What I am most excited for is being able to do what I've always wanted to do, to fulfill my duty as an American.

What would you do with the money saved from an Army ROTC Scholarship? 
I would invest the money into my future to establish my financial stability.
