AAS C/1st Lt Eric Salem
AAS C/1st Lt Eric Salem is a sophomore who is originally from Annapolis, MD, but gladly calls Charleston, SC home now. He is striving to complete a degree in mechanical engineering and looks to commission in the Spring of 2021 as a pilot.
Eric wanted to join AAS because he had a lot to learn coming into college and AFROTC with no prior military experience. Although initiation was rigorous, Eric learned a lot about the little things of AFROTC, especially drilling. His goal in AAS is to push others to better understand what AFROTC is about, but even greater, what military service is about.
Eric is a huge Pittsburgh fan... that’s right, six rings for the Steelers. He enjoys playing most sports for fun, but is especially fond of football and basketball. He also enjoys working on cars and building random things.
