From left to right are: Captain Ricky Summitt (’80, ‘94), Cadet Kurstin Kinder (Class of ‘26), Cadet Jalynn Krieger (Class of ‘25), Master Sergeant Howard Hawkins, senior military science instructor at UT, Cadet Tobias Hausteiner of the Theresian Military Academy, Cadet Anson Galipeau (Class of ‘25), Cadet Davis Mckee (Class of ‘26).

A group of Army ROTC cadets spent a week at the Theresian Military Academy near Vienna, Austria, as part of a visit arranged by Ricky Summitt (‘80, ‘94), a member of the Army ROTC Alumni Council working with the Army ROTC program and the US Embassy in Vienna.

The visit exposed cadets to another military organization, enriching their learning and preparing them to work with the nation’s allies. They attended an officer’s ball, and a formal connection with the academy may lead to similar events in the future.
