Shultis Joins US Army Reserves
Christopher G. Shultis has joined the United States Army Reserve under the Delayed Training Program. The program gives young men and women the opportunity to delay reporting for basic military training for up to 270 days.
An enlistment in the reserve gives many new soldiers the option to learn a new skill, serve their country, and become eligible to receive more than $7,000 toward a college education, $20,000 for repayment of college loans and a maximum $5,000 cash bonus. After completion of basic military training most soldiers receive advanced individual training in their career job specialty prior to being assigned to their reserve unit.
Shultis, a 1997 graduate of Roxbury Central High School, will report to Fort Jackson, Columbia, South Carolina for basic training in November. He is the son of Loren Allen Shultis of Roxbury.
