- Jared D. Tomberlin, son of James L. and Deryl M. Tomberlin of Barrington, graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) Leader Development and Assessment Course, also known as "Operation Warrior Forge," at Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Wash.

The 33 days of training provides the best possible professional training and evaluation for all cadets in the aspects of military life, administration and logistical support. Although continued military training and leadership development is included in the curriculum, the primary focus of the course is to develop and evaluate each cadet's officer potential as a leader by exercising the cadet's intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and stamina. The cadet command assesses each cadet's performance and progress in officer traits, qualities and professionalism while attending the course.

Tomberlin is currently attending the University of Colorado Springs, Colo.

Students utilize acquired skills to function in "leader and follower" positions in squad and platoon-sized elements in a stressful and demanding field environment involving various tactical situations. Traxinger graduated in 1994 from Palatine High School, and earned a bachelor's degree in 1998 from the Milwaukee School of Engineering in Wisconsin.
