Special Thanks to General Dynamics
Cadet Battalion Commander Matthew Tierney and Assistant
Professor of Military Science Captain Matthew Amsdell present
General Dynamics with Unit Patches. This is in thanks for
their assistance for their weapons showcase setup up at Green
Mountain Battalion’s Fall Rappelling and Basic Rifle
Marksmanship lab. They brought four weapon systems and briefed
cadets on design, capabilities, and uses for each system. This
was a great experience for the cadets and gave them helpful
insight into these systems that they will have under their
command someday. Thanks again to all at General Dynamics and
we look forward to working with you in the future.
Leadership Training Course
LTC was a great way to find out that I am fully committed to the Army and that this is what I want to do with my life after college. It’s a full submersion into the ways of the army and it gives a taste of what your future soldiers went through during their own initial Basic Training (although nowhere near as long). I have a lot of respect for NCOs and the Army as a whole coming out of LTC. I know the Soldier’s Creed like the back of my hand, and have internalized the Army Values. I know my way around an M16, and am a lot more comfortable being in a leadership role. I literally am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, and trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills. I am on my way to becoming an American Soldier.
Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) Program
Our mission in Guatemala was to provide Spanish medical translation for the Continuing Promise mission that was supported by the US Navy. Continuing Promise is a five month mission that travels from port to port, with the U.S. Navy Ship USNS Comfort, to different South American countries, providing health service support and promoting clinical information to patients in need. Within their mission in Guatemala, Continuing Promise triaged over 8,000 patients. Five stations were provided for the patients ranging from pediatrics, family medicine, dermatology, optomology, and dentistry. Patients that required more medical attention were triaged to see the general surgeons to determine if they needed to be sent onto the USNS Comfort for surgery.
