Every year, our program looks forward to dominating the The ISU Ambush. What’s a little mud and running?
CPT Joshua Bruner, an alum of the Idaho State University ROTC program, has had a fantastic career so far. He joined the ROTC program at the end of his sophomore year, immediately leaving for the Leader's Training Course (now Basic Camp) at Fort Knox, Kentucky to catch up to the other third-year Cadets. He served as the Detachment Commander During his second and final year of the program. Their class was also tasked to create a new mascot design and to paint a mural in the Reed Gym office. His wife, Abbi, painted the mural for the program. The newly commissioned 2LT Bruner branched Field Artillery and supported our program for a few more months as a Gold Bar Recruiter before leaving for Fort Sill, Oklahoma for Basic Officer Leaders Course (BOLC). ➡️ CPT Bruner’s first duty station was Fort Bliss, Texas from which he deployed to Afghanistan in 2012 with 1st Armored Division as a Platoon Leader and Fire Direction Officer. Upon returning from his deployment, he spent six months as a Fire Support Officer and then the Executive Officer (XO) for the Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion (HHB) for approximately a year. ➡️ After serving as XO, he left for Fort Sill to complete the Field Artillery Captains Career Course. Towards the end of his second stint at Fort Sill, CPT Bruner applied for the Funded Legal Education Program for which he was selected. After about a year as an Assistant S3 (Operations Officer), CPT Bruner moved with his family to Seattle, Washington where he is currently finishing his degree through the University of Washington School of Law. Upon completion, he will transfer to the Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps for the remainder of his Army career. 📸 Photos:
