5th Brigade Army ROTC cadets support All Star football game

By Danielle Avington 5th Brigade, United States Army Cadet Command Public Affairs

Army ROTC cadets with 5th Brigade, U.S. Army Cadet Command from Saint Mary’s University supported the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game at the Alamodome in downtown San Antonio Jan. 4.

Cadets had the opportunity to run the exhibit, share their Army ROTC experiences and be the face of Army ROTC. Cadets support events, volunteer in their community and learn to lead through hands-on training.

Cadet Morgan Martinez was one of those cadets who worked the event. She was asked by many people on her reasons for enrolling in the ROTC program. Martinez contributed her key motivators to great opportunities, ROTC clubs, friends and military presence.

Saint Mary’s Army ROTC cadets made an impact with their presence during the festivities, as attendees who walked through the entrance gates made sure to speak with Army ROTC cadets, whether it was to learn more about Army ROTC or to merely show appreciation.

With Army ROTC offered at more than 1,100 colleges and universities across the nation, ROTC cadets are given mentorship and exciting and engaging leadership development opportunities. Just like the cadets at the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football game, they took charge, engaged and developed leadership skills through a professional experience.
