Donaghe graduates ROTC course

Christopher L. Donaghe has graduated from the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps leader development and assessment course, also known as “Operation Warrior Forge,” at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Wash.
The 32 days of training provide professional training and evaluation for cadets in the aspects of military life, administration and logistical support.  Although continued military training and leadership development is included in the curriculum, the primary focus of the course is to develop and evaluate each cadet’s officer potential as a leader.  The cadet command assesses each cadet’s performance and progress in officer traits, qualities and professionalism while attending the course.
Cadets in their junior and senior years of college must complete the leadership development course. Upon completion of the course, the ROTC program and graduation from college, cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army, National Guard or Reserve.
Donaghe is the son of Denise Michele of Midway.
He is a 2007 graduate of Liberty County High School.
