|September breakfast with ROTC leadership and cadets a success; Next breakfast Oct. 28
|We had a great September breakfast meeting with the Professors of Military Science and cadets from the ROTC programs that our chapter supports with performance incentives and mentoring. The panel of cadre and cadets represented Pittsburg State, KU, Missouri Western and Wentworth Military Academy. (Central Missouri could not attend.) Panel members described their ROTC programs and answered questions. Many chapter members think that our support of ROTC is the most effective way that we contribute to the Army by helping to build our future leaders.
Our next breakfast will be at the Westin on October 28, when we will review the events and issues raised at the AUSA National Meeting in Washington.
Our chapter is partnering with the American Warrior project of the Business Club of Overland Park in an effort to bring our corporate and individual members together on the issue of post-military careers.
Join us for a great breakfast program in October! RSVP to Diane at Dianeboeger@sbcglobal.net
