Keith Finch ('41), now in his 90s, is one of a dwindling number of World War II veterans still around to tell their tales. Finch showed farm boys how to become fighter pilots during the war, and didn't escape without a few brushes with death himself.

On a cold, wet and windy mid-February day, members of Campbell University’s ROTC battalion went deep into the Buies Creek woods to train on the one-rope bridge. The exercise is part of the annual Ranger Challenge, often called the ‘varsity sport’ of Army ROTC. Photographer Lissa Gotwals documented MSgt. Aaron Light and his crew through photos for Campbell Magazine.
