  • Virginia Military Institute - Numbers Up for Naval ROTC Commissioning
    the summer For the Marine Corps this year s number of 23 new second lieutenants is actually down from the 29 who commissioned in 2013 Of those 23 two commissioned in December 2013 and 21 entered the service in May Nevertheless the total number from both branches Navy and Marine Corps is higher in 2013 14 than it was the preceding academic year and even higher than it was the year before that when a total of 51 commissioned Cmdr Randy Zamora executive officer at VMI s Naval ROTC believes that the success of the unit is directly related to the Institute s demanding academic and military standards One of the things that helped us out is that VMI has a very good reputation said Zamora in explaining the jump in this year s commissioning numbers Zamora noted that each year a certain number of individuals on scholarship drop out of Navy ROTC programs across the nation The Navy then redistributes those unused scholarship funds to other ROTC enrolled cadets across the nation oftentimes with surprisingly good results for VMI This year for example the VMI Naval ROTC nominated 33 cadets for scholarships and 29 received them Two more cadets were selected as advanced standing which means that although they do not receive scholarship funds they do receive a monthly stipend and are guaranteed a commission upon graduation I think the Navy recognizes that at VMI there is a lot on everyone s plate and if they can remain competitive here compared to the next guy at another institution then VMI s person is a very good leader and quite capable Zamora commented Experiences during spring field training exercises at VMI also boost interest in naval careers Zamora noted For the past few years Navy option ROTC cadets have traveled to the greater Norfolk Fleet Concentration Area to visit the vessels in port participate in simulator training and meet enlisted sailors and officers This year a highlight for the 4th Class and 3rd Class cadets was simulator training aboard the USS Buttercup a vessel that Zamora described as a wet trainer Cadets on board the Buttercup found themselves waist deep in water as they attempted to use their pipe patching skills to stop the flow and save the ship Other cadets participated in maritime skills simulators that tested the skills necessary to operate both a surface ship and a submarine while cadets hoping for careers as Navy aviators trained on flight simulators It s just this sort of exposure that leads to greater commissioning numbers down the road Zamora believes Speaking specifically of the Class of 2014 he noted They had a lot more interest in commissioning in general and I think that has a lot to do with FTX In recent years they ve done a much more robust FTX Zamora added When the cadets get to Norfolk that piques their interest and they think Maybe I would want to do that Maybe I would want to commission For

  • Virginia Military Institute - In Force-on-Force, Marine Cadets Protect - And Obstruct - 'Election'
    To prepare the cadets were presented with a fictitious background story in which the former Natural Bridge Juvenile Correctional Center located in rural Rockbridge County became a polling site for democratic elections being held in a war torn country On Saturday morning the company hiked out to McKethan Park and boarded National Guard CH 47s and were flown out to the detention center said Cadet Josh Vaughan 14 FTX commanding officer Divided into two groups Bulldog Company made up of cadets heading to Officer Candidate School and Marine Company everyone else the cadets took up opposing roles The Marine Company was acting as peacekeepers trying to facilitate this election and Bulldog was acting as the opposing force that wanted to keep an authoritarian regime in power explained Cadet Jack Gotwalt 14 FTX executive officer Marine reservists in the Corps and alumni volunteered their assistance acting as civilians in the vicinity of the detention center It gave them a much more dynamic atmosphere to operate in said Gotwalt It was more than we ve done in the past throwing a lot more variables at them The cold and rain presented obstacles as well making the night time operations harder to accomplish in addition to just making it miserable added Vaughan Cadets spent their nights in the field sleeping out under the stars no tents just waterproof sleeping bags I would say that the hardest part for most people was the lack of sleep he continued People were lucky to get around four hours a night most people including myself and Gotwalt averaged around two While Bulldog Company was significantly smaller in number it carried the day more often than not They maneuvered almost perfectly observed Gotwalt The level that they re at right now is very impressive After concluding operations at
