Little completes officers’ training

Brandon J. Little has completed the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) Leader’s Training Course at Fort Knox.

The four-week course is a leadership internship for cadets that can lead to 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 off ers 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. They 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.

Little is a student at Pikeville College. He is the adopted son of Sharon D. Little of Cromona, and is a 2007 graduate of Letcher County Central High School.
