TINIAN — After reviewing samples of her work, Cadet Capt. Dea Patio was chosen by the U.S. Army Cadet Command to write an article for Army Echoes, the U.S. Army’s official newsletter for retired soldiers, surviving spouses and their families. A dedicated cadet, she has been part of the Tinian JROTC program for the past three years and is the current Stallion Battalion Public Affairs Officer, or S-5. She will represent the Stallion Battalion and CNMI as a whole, with her article discussing the impact of the U.S. Army JROTC program on her community, school, and herself.

When asked about her thoughts on writing the article, she stated, “It was not difficult [to think] of how the program has positively impacted the community of Tinian, my school, and myself…. This program has done so much for me and I tried my best to elaborate on how much JROTC taught me and helped shape me into the person I am today.”
It is no doubt that she was chosen because of her remarkable writing skills. Her previous articles, such as the Field of Heroes article that was posted on the U.S. Army JROTC website, does a great job highlighting her writing talent. This talent was recognized, as it was not only the first article from the Stallion Battalion to be featured on the U.S. Army JROTC Cadet Command website, but also the first article from any battalion in the CNMI to be posted on there as well. She has several other notable works, such as the Health Field Day article, as well as the ongoing series about Tinian JROTC alumni — both of which are available on the Tinian Stallion Battalion website and Facebook page. Her upcoming Army Echoes article will also be posted on the website once it is released sometime this month of April.
Being chosen out of hundreds of cadets across America, Patio recognizes the significance of this opportunity, stating, “When I was told the news from Captain Santos, I was over the moon. It is truly an honor to be able to represent JROTC and the Stallion Battalion.”
We are over the moon for you, as well, Cadet Patio! The Stallion Battalion is very proud to have such a talent represent us in Army Echoes. Keep up the amazing work and continue to seize such opportunities! Hooah!
