Local ROTC Members Eager To Join Elite Force Following Bin Laden Mission

The successful mission by the Navy SEALs team that killed Osama bin Laden has Americans talking about those elite members.

The mission also reaffirmed soon to be soldiers Jack Abate and Jeff Shafer's desire to be a part of a team like that.

Both Abate and Shafer have attended East Carolina University and have been a part of its ROTC program for the last four years. The two say that they are planning on joining the Army Rangers--which is a Special Operations branch of the Army.

Hopeful rangers or Army Special Operatives have to first serve time as an officer and be recognized for their achievements. They then must apply for the program and be assessed before being accepted for training.
