This is Joel and I'm really excited to be blogging again. I hope that school, life and everything is good for you. We're nearing mid-term/Spring break and I really can't wait to take a week off just to relax and recharge myself!

Anyways, let's talk about my blog post. You might be wondering what "Men and Women in Green" mean. If you do understand what I'm trying to say, I tip my hat off to you. For those that don't, I'm referring to our very own Military personnel on campus!

Let's learn about the ROTC program at PLU :)
1) So, what is the ROTC program?
ROTC, or the Reserve Officer Training Corps, is a program that allows future Army officers to simultaneously study their chosen disciplines, and training and developing as military leaders.
2) I see, so why did you choose to join it?
I choose ROTC first for the money (there was no way i could afford PLU) and secondly because I have a duty to my country to serve as best I can. I have always considered myself a leader, and this was a way to use my strengths and talents to further my career choices.
4) Nice! And how is your daily/usual school life like?
5) Have there been any misconceptions about the ROTC program in general? And is there anything that you want to say to help clear up these misconceptions?
And back to me.
Wow! So as you can see, Chris and I had a pretty lengthy discussion. Most of the answers are personal quotes from him. I hope this blog post helped you learn something new about PLU!
PLU's well known for high educational quality, but it's also time that people recognize that PLU broods citizens of high moral standards, integrity and character!
Again, thank you Chris. I must also add, I really respect the ROTC program at PLU and those in it!
Have a great night everyone.
