Local cadet to interact with military leaders this week

Travis Hawkins, who is an Army ROTC Cadet from Troy University, will join senior U.S. military leaders at the General George C. Marshall national security seminar in Lexington, Va. April 15-17.

He will travel to historic Lexington along with key military officials such as Army Chief of Staff, Gen. George W. Casey and the Secretary of the Army Pete Geren.

While in Lexington, Hawkins will have the opportunity to directly interact with the key leaders in attendance and discuss a variety of issues directly bearing on national security.

Hawkins is an outstanding leader and served as the Army ROTC Battalion Commander for the entire 2008 – 2009 school year. In addition to several military awards, Alpha Phi Sigma, which is the National Honor Society for Criminal Justice professionals, selected Hawkins as the Distinguished Honor Graduate for our May graduation.

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
