We recently had the opportunity to sit and talk with LTC Robert May and SFC Jason Person, who are in the directors of the Central Michigan University ROTC program. The Reserve Officer Training Corps prepares high school and college students for entrance into the military as officers, typically while offering tuition assistance.

Through their sit-down interviews we learned about the significance of the ROTC as well as the opportunities it offers young cadets.

We also were able to talk with Mia Segura, Tyler Goode, Michon Giarardo and Lexis Pettinger – all cadets of the program. Over the course of the next few months we will step into the lives of these young men and women to better understand the commitment and career path they are on with the United States Army.
