The graduating class

This year’s commissioning class from the Golden Knight Battalion is a diverse group. I wanted to share some of the statistics regarding this group to highlight the fact that they come from different schools, have different majors, and will serve in many different career fields. Despite their background they will all be junior officers (Second Lieutenants) soon, and will be expected to be ready to lead their soldiers in the coming months. They have all learned about the Army Values and the Soldier’s Creed, and they have been given the training they need for the next level.
