Bass graduates ROTC course


Army Cadet Kyra M. Bass graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) Leader’s Training Course at Fort Knox, Ky.

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 offers and attend the Advanced ROTC Course at their college.

Bass is a student at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. She is the daughter of Carol Parish of Pine Bluff and she graduated in 2010 from Watson Chapel High School.

During the course, 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.
