A people will say that one vote wont make a difference and lets be realistic it probably wont we need registration in the thousands to make an Impact and that a Why this Campaign is so important Quot by Paul Rumen the Lumberjack the sweat collects on his brow in tiny beads trickling Down his face stinging his eyes. The weight of the equipment he carries digs into his shoulders despite the extra padding of his chemical Protection suit Hie breath sounds muffled from the Hood of his protective mask Ashe pants his Way Over the endless Sand dunes of the saudi arabian desert scenes such As this have become the daily routine for the thousands of . Troops that have been deployed to saudi Arabia since iraqis aug. 9 invasion of Kuwait every Day More and More . Troops and equipment arrive in saudi Arabia and every Day the tension of the crisis seems to mount. The thought of entering into a conflict on the scale of Vietnam has been on the Public s mind As the crisis escalates. It has also been on the minds of the cadets and cadre of naut a Roix programs. A we in the military Are especially concerned about finding a peaceful solution to the crisis a said la col. John s. Westerlund professor of military science and chair of naut a army Roth program. Quot at this stage however the armed forces should be capable to defend the saudi Peninsula from a foreign invasion if that is necessary Quot Westerlund said. Westerlund said it would however be Quot highly unlikely that any of the 15 senior cadets in Nau s army program eight of which Are enrolled at the Embry Riddle aeronautical Institute in Prescott for flight training would serve Tours of duty in saudi Arabia. This is because upon graduation the newly commissioned officers will still have to undergo several months of training in order to be qualified for their individual jobs. This High Standard of training would remain the same even if a conflict does break out in the persian Gulf. Our program would not be accelerated in order to fill the needs of the army in time of War Quot Westerlund said. Kristi Mcdowell the Lumberjack la. Col. John s. Westerlund chairman of Nau s army Roth program. Said it is highly unlikely that any of his senior cadets will serve in saudi Arabia in this crisis.

Mike Hardin 22, another senior Cadet in the army program agrees. Quot its on our minds. You can to help seeing it on to but the important thing is to graduate on time a Hardin said. The army however is not the Only program at Nau that is preparing to graduate commissioned officers. A no sane Man wants to go to War and if someone does they be a Leader Quot said la col. Patrick c. Bums professor of aerospace studies and chair of the air Force Roth program at Nau.
