[June 15, 2012]  MOUNT PULASKI -- Erich Maxheimer, a Mount. Pulaski High School graduate and University of Illinois student, just successfully completed a 28-day field training course at the Officer Training School campus at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala.

Air University holds the field-training courses for college students in the ROTC program during the summer between their sophomore and junior years of college. It is a vital process of leadership, development and assessment to determine their worthiness to become an Air Force commissioned officer. Only a select number of cadets have the opportunity to be evaluated in the summer ROTC training program. Cadets are tested in physical fitness, drill assessment, and the Field Training Manual and Airman's Manual.

Erich is the son of Mike and Suzie Maxheimer of Chestnut. He is the grandson of Earl and Dolores Maxheimer of Mount Pulaski, Charlie and June Huffer of Lincoln, and Pete and Della Eeten of Pekin.
