Middleton commissioned as second lieutenant

Brandon C. Middleton of Advance, Mo., has received a commission of second lieutenant in the Army Reserve through the ROTC Early Commissioning Program. Middleton graduated with an associate degree from Marion Military Institute in Marion, Ala.

The ECP offered at Marion Military Institute allows students to earn a commission of second lieutenant in the Army after only two years of college. The officers are assigned to an Army reserve component unit, actively participate in unit training assemblies and receive pay and benefit entitlements.

After being commissioned, they have 36 months to complete additional academic requirements to receive a bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university offering an Army ROTC program.

Middleton is the son of Tim Middleton and Melinda Masters, both of Advance. He graduated from Advance High School in 2000.
