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.
