            Chapter 1

            In our country today, less than one percent of our population wears nations uniform. We need somebody to step up and take the lead. The Army Officer is one of the last few noble professions. Leadership is needed on the battlefield. Leadership is needed in the classroom. Leadership is needed in business. I don't have a very big military background. I thought I would be a big chump going to straight to a military school.

            Half my college list was military academies; the other half was civilian colleges that had the ROTC program. Eventually I figured out that I wanted to go the civilian route. I wanted to have both the experience of being in the military, but also the civilian college lifestyle. When I first heard about it from a counselor in high school he told me about it and I looked into it. Hey, I got a four-year scholarship.

            The Army ROTC offers several millions of attending commissions in the United States Army. The way I think of it is there is an option for everybody. The Officers produce the Army ROTC, the largest commissioning source. The military junior college is a unique institution in that we front load all the military training in two summers and actually commission them at generally twenty years old. Because it is a junior college, you spend the first two years here; you finish a four-year degree at a regular four-year college. I felt it would be a good transition between high school and going on to the Army. The regiment of the lifestyle here, waking up a zero five in the morning, physical training everyday is very appealing to me.

            One of the important things about the Army ROTC on a civilian campus like JMU, it has both the excellent academics that you need to really get something out of a college education. But it is also kind of a more laid back and relaxed place. Virginia Tech is one of six schools that is known as a senior military college. Although they are members of the core of cadets they wear a uniform every single day. They have the opportunity to interface with the other twenty five thousand civilian students. They also want to have a college experience. I am guaranteed an active duty slot if I want it rather than having to compete like other ROTC programs.
