    Central Valley — Christopher J. Marshall, whose mother is Central Valley resident Kim Marshall, has graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) Leader Development and Assessment Course, also known as “Operation Warrior Forge,” at Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Wash. The training provides the professional training and evaluation for all cadets in the aspects of military life, administration and logistical support. Although continued military training and leadership development is included in the curriculum, the primary focus of the course is to develop and evaluate each cadet’s officer potential as a leader. Cadets in their junior and senior year of college must complete the leadership development course. Upon completion of the course, the ROTC program, and graduation from college, cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the Army, National Guard, or Reserve. Marshall is a 2005 graduate of John S. Burke Catholic High School in Goshen.
