'74 Alum Donates Historical Photo

UVM ROTC Alum Scott Whitted (Class of '74) presented a framed portrait of a 1939 Field Training Exercise at Fort Devens, Massachusetts to LTC Palaza during the October 20th Professional Forum. The portrait was passed down to Mr. Whitted by his stepfather, E. Roger Thomas (Class of '40), carrying on the rich tradition of ROTC at UVM. Please stop by 601 Main St. to check out this special piece of Green Mountain Battalion history!   

Mr. Whitted, who currently serves on the Green Mountain Battalion ROTC Alumni Association Board of Directors, has been instrumental in preserving the legacy of past generations of Catamount leaders. This photo is the second he has donated to the ROTC program in recent years. While serving as a lawyer for the United States Department of Homeland Security, Mr. Whitted still takes the time to participate in Cadets' training events. He participated in the Vermont Remembers 10k Run on September 11th of this year and cheered on Cadets during their record APFT in November.

Although he has been spotted at recent training events sporting Yankees apparel, Cadets remain motivated by Mr. Whitted's commitment to the Green Mountain Battalion and truly appreciate all of his support!
