Army ROTC: From college to officer

By Ken Begley

I’ve served on active duty and the Army Reserve for 42 years as an enlisted man in a wide variety of units and leadership positions. My time is almost over as I will be retired at the end of October when I reach 60.
It’s been interesting, fun, scary at times, and most of all rewarding.
My deepest regret is not taking Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) as a cadet when I was in college and becoming an officer in the U.S. Army. I feel I could have done so much more if I had.
