Cadet Brady receives branch assignment

Cadet Aidan Brady of Clemmons recently received his upcoming Army branch assignment. He’ll accept a commission as an officer in the Army after graduating from The Citadel in May. “I’m very excited to have branched Armor — it was my No, 1 choice and is something I have dreamed of doing since I was a little kid,” Brady said. “Being a part of the Corps of Cadets taught me how to deal with a lot of stress and not a lot of time, and still find a way to get the job done to the best of my ability. The Citadel has opened so many doors for me in the Army and I am extremely excited to see where they take me.” Brady is majoring in political science.
