    CAnderson197, I think you look very competent and handsome in your uniform! :cool:
    Does the patch below the US Flag have a lightning bolt and an eagle? Is that the patch for your ROTC unit or for your school? Is there a story about the patch?
    Congrats for getting your uniform!!! :thumb:

    Sorry it took so long for me to reply....we had land nav yesterday and then a bunch of us went out to eat so I didn't go home until late, and yup of course...PT at 0600! Good for you, good for me.

    Just_A_Mom: I took a diagnostic PFT which didn't count for anything other than a guage so the cadre could see where our Ranger Challenge Team stood and scored a 280, I take the real one on Thursday 20SEP at 0530, so hopefully by 21SEP i'll be contracted.

    Antoinette: The patch below the flag is our college ROTC flag. The Eagle is because we are a part of the Golden Eagle's Batallion which includes: Mount Union College, Youngstown State University, Akron University (I believe) and Kent State University. The lightning bolt is the school mascot (The Golden Flashes).

    I was a tad bit disappointed, I wanted that 300.
