On December 13, 2016 six Central Michigan University ROTC Cadets were sworn in as Second Lieutenants in the US Army. Guest speaker, Mr. Terry Moore (’65), ROTC Alumni spoke to the Cadets about what an outstanding leadership development program Army ROTC is, what a positive impact it made on his lifelong success, and
 words of wisdom regarding leadership and their futures in the US Army. CMU Alumni and former Army Major Bart Nolde (’82) also spoke to the audience, regarding the military history in which most American Families have a part in. This is very dear to him, as his father
COL William Nolde was the last official casualty of the Vietnam War.

Three of the Second Lieutenants were sworn in by Alumni, former ROTC Cadets.  2LT Bart Nolde by his brother 1LT Byron Nolde (’12); 2LT Daniel McCarthy by his brother CPT Timothy McCarthy (06’), and 2LT Sean Kirley was sworn in by his friend 1LT Zachary Benke (’13). It was truly and honor to have the Central Michigan Alumni be a large part of the Commissioning Ceremony.
