Fort Knox, KY. — Cadet Initial Entry Training (CIET) 1st Regiment Cadets received their Reserve Component Brief on June 7 at Olive Theater.
“Particularly in the Reserve, you need to understand what’s available. What is available, both on the military side and the civilian side,” stated Maj. Gen. Peter S. Lennon, United States Army Reserve Command.
Lennon visited to answer cadets’ questions regarding the difference and benefits between Active and Reserve components, as well as the National Guard.
Several officers from the Reserve and National Guard informed Cadets on their options and career opportunities as they advance within the Army. An Army civilian spoke to Cadets about scholarships upon returning to college in the fall.
“A lot of financial resources are available that can help, but not every option gives the reward of being able to serve America, to be able to produce and achieve what you do in the U.S. Army,” said Lennon.
