    Today, I was presented with my ROTC scholarship by SGM Perio, a member of US Army Cadet Command. Unfortunately, the pictures of him giving it to me were distorted, for one because he's a MASSIVE man and for another because the podium was in the way. Not to mention ****ty lighting. But this is a picture of me and my best friend, wearing our Chords as well as with me holding my scholarship award:

    The award actually reads:

    Be it know that:

    Cadet Christopher J. Anderson
    Having achieved a meritorious record in academic studies, extracurricular participation, and athletic activities, and having demonstrated exceptional leadership potential, as well as an expressed desire to serve as an officer in the United States Army, is conditionally selected for an Army ROTC Scholarship
