Tom Ersing, 18, of Sicklerville, NJ attends The Pennsylvania College of Technology where he has become a part of the ROTC program. While majoring in Construction Management and minoring in Business Administration, Ersing is also training to become a part of the National Guard. Ersing decided this was something he wanted to do while he was attending high school at Timber Creek high school in Erial, NJ. When Ersing finishes up his training in June of 2017, he plans to commision into the Army as Active or Reserve.
After many long days and nights of training, Ersing was finally able to take a trip home to visit his family and friends for the Thanksgiving holiday. During his trip home, he made a trip to visit his friend Joe Greco, 20, who is a student at Camden County College.
Ersing and Greco had tons of catching up to do during Ersing’s visit. So they caught each other up with all that is going on in their lives while watching some college basketball on TV.
After hanging out and catching up over a couple of hours, Ersing has to move on to go visit some more friends and family during his short time at home.
Ersing waves goodbye to his friend one last time before driving off to make his rounds to his other friends, and then head up back to school.
Before leaving home, Ersing brought some Army Reserve T-shirts for his friends and family as part of a fundraiser the ROTC program he is involved in was holding.
