Editorial Salute - 10/6/11

An Armstrong Atlantic State University cadet earns high honors.  Michael Holly has earned a slot among the Top 10 ROTC senior cadets in the nation.  For perspective, Michael's Top Ten standing is out of America's 5,600 other senior cadets.  That's an incredible tribute to his combination of grade point, physical fitness and leadership, all key criteria for selection.

Said the 3rd ID's Colonel Roger Cloutier:  "You meet a young man like Michael, among the very best our nation has to offer.  Here's a man who came from humble beginnings, enlisted in the Army, deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq, and now has come back to earn his degree and an ROTC commission, and also gains this top ranking among his peers."

Our congratulations to AASU Senior ROTC cadet, Michael Holly, for both his outstanding accomplishments and for his commitment to serve further in the Army in defense of our great country.
