Stepping into those big shoes is our own Zachary Vasquez, Alamo Battalion graduate and graduate of the Sea Cadet NSWOC SWCC training. RCT Vasquez was very kind to send us an update on how he is doing, which we share below.
It is great to hear from Alamo Battalion. I wish I could come by for a drill and say hi to everyone. I’m glad to hear that everyone is doing well and I hope Drill will be going back to in person.
Norwich is a great place for me it truly feels like home. We are learning new things every day and Sea Cadets have defiantly prepared me for my Rookdom here at Norwich. There is so much rich history here and everyone is held to a high standard and nothing is given to you. But, besides the early freezing morning formation I love it here. I am majoring in computer science and data assurance. Army ROTC is great. We are going on rucks up on Pain Mountain, learning what each person does in a fire team and what their role and rank is, and many other cool things. For wrestling we have been working out as a team, but due to Covid we are not allowed to wrestle yet. However, we should be start wrestling on October 5th. A thing to always remember is to find what you want to do and go after it and chase your dreams and use your resources to find out how to achieve your dreams. Try to always be psychically fit so you don't have to worry about the PT tests that you must pass. Finally if you have no idea what you are doing make it look like you know what you are doing. Fake it until you make it.
