Army Cadets Tavai and Sa graduate from ROTC leaders course
Army Cadets Lauivaa C. Tavai and Liza T. Sa have graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) Leaders Training Course at Fort Knox, KY.
The four-week course is a leadership internship for cadets that can lead to the ultimate goal of becoming an Army officer. College students experience and examine the Army without incurring an obligation to serve in the Army or ROTC, and are eligible to receive two-year college scholarship offers and attend the Advanced ROTC Course at their college.
Cadets are observed and evaluated during classroom and field training exercises to determine their officer potential in leadership abilities and skills. The cadets are trained to have a sound understanding of traditional leadership values during the challenging, motivating "hands-on" training.
The training develops well-disciplined, highly motivated, physically conditioned students, and helps improve the cadets' self-confidence, initiative, leadership potential, decision making, and collective team cohesion. The cadets receive training in fundamental military skills, Army values, ethics, warrior ethos, basic rifle marksmanship, small arms tactics, weapons training, drill and ceremony, communications, combat water survival training, rappelling, land navigation, and squad-level operations field training.
Tavai is a student at Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington, MO. He is the son of Moleli Tavai and graduated in 2013 from Fagaitua High School.
Sa is a student at New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM. She is the daughter of Faitele Sa of Fort Knox, KY and is a 2013 graduate of Manumalo Baptist School.
