The cadet cadre for the first iteration of Cadet Basic Training took the name Task Force Lambka, in honor of 1st Lt. Todd Lambka, a Class of 2010 graduate and infantry officer who was killed in action Aug. 1, 2012, while serving in Afghanistan.

The CBT commander, Class of 2014 Cadet Lindsey Danilack said she was approached by some recent graduates who were plebes in the company Lambka commanded as a cadet. “They explained who he was, his character and the values he lived by,” she said. “Everything that he embodied is everything I want our cadre to be as leaders. Those cadets who were in his company had the utmost respect for this man. He was a true leader and demonstrated professionalism, team cohesion and just everything you could want from an officer.
