Pride of the Jaguar Battalion: Chase Inglett

Man standing
Augusta University cadet Chase Inglett wants to remain in the National Guard after graduating, preferably in military intelligence.

In this new monthly series, Jagwire will feature a cadet who is enrolled in Augusta University’s ROTC program and a member of the Jaguar Army ROTC Battalion.

Where are you from and what high school did you attend?

I am from Augusta and went to Evans High School.

Why did you choose to attend Augusta University?

AU was the college closest to home.

How did you become interested in the ROTC/military?

I enlisted in the National Guard after high school after being in JROTC.

Why did you choose to pursue the degree that you’ve selected?

I chose physics as my major because of my interest in the subject.

What are your long-term plans for the military?

I will remain in the National Guard after graduating, preferably remaining in military intelligence.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions of being in the ROTC?

The biggest misconception of ROTC is that all cadets are highly experienced veterans. Many, if not most cadets, have their first experiences of the military being ROTC.

Use one word to describe cadet life.

Preparatory.

What has been the hardest adjustment to preparing for the military?

I haven’t had to make many adjustments for the past few years. After graduating AIT, I came immediately to AU and ROTC, so my military life flowed through into the new stage of my life.

What are you most excited about now that you are a part of Jaguar Nation and the Jaguar Battalion?

I am excited for the new cadre, like Lt. Col. Keenan.

Use one word to sum up your experience as a Jaguar?

Formative.
