Message from the Cadet of the Month
PT is the most important aspect of ROTC to me because it is impossible to motivate others from the back. Whether it is on a PT run or a ruck march, how can I expect my future soldiers to follow me in the orders I give if I can’t keep up myself? It is important as a leader to be able to take care of others, rather than having to rely on them taking care of me. PT conveys many aspects of leadership skills through teamwork and the ability to lead your peers, as well as being an example for the ROTC program.
