Elliot Palm (right), a junior with Air Force ROTC, practices rifle training Sept. 21, 2018. When asked about the mentality a person has to have to train, Elliot states, “People in today’s society seem to have the misconception that you either fail or achieve at something, when in reality that’s not it at all.” He proceeded to talk about his own struggles when beginning with training, “I’ve got a few scars from not catching the rifle when I was starting out. So in reality, you fail, you fail, and you fail, and by overcoming those failures you succeed.” (Joey Sears | @Joey_Sears10)
