UW-Eau Claire Army ROTC Cpt Frahm leaving for deployment
Today is Cpt Bradley Frahm’s last day at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
Frahm, who is assistant professor of military science (APMS) and the executive officer in charge of the UW-Eau Claire ROTC program, will be deployed in April to a base defense operation center at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait. Until then he will be doing additional training, first at Fort McCoy, and eventually at Fort Hood, TX.
This is Frahm’s second deployment. He spent 2009–2010 at Contingency Operating Base Adder in Tallil, Iraq.
Frahm came to UW-Eau Claire in January 2011. As the APMS, he had many responsibilities in addition to teaching and advising students. He also supervised labs and physical fitness training, conducted field training exercises, recruited and marketed the ROTC program, and did administrative work.
He is especially proud that during his time on campus the ROTC program grew significantly in terms of the number and quality of cadets.
“Our cadets are better trained and prepared to become leaders,” said Frahm.
His favorite part of his position was working with people. He will miss them all—the cadets, MSG Ivan Johnson, the senior military instructor, and the faculty and staff in the College of Business and the Athletics Department.
“I will always remember my experiences at UW-Eau Claire with pride in what we have accomplished,” said Frahm.
We will also remember Frahm.
“Brad has been a wonderful partner for us and for the university,” said Diane Hoadley, dean of the College of Business. “He always made the services of the ROTC program available to support campus events, and was especially helpful working with our veteran students. I’m proud of what he has accomplished here and wish him all the very best as he returns to active service.”
MAJ Daniel Walsh will assume Frahm’s position when he leaves.
