Andrew D. Huffaker has been commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army after successfully completing the Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) program and graduating with a bachelor’s degree from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.

The new officer will be branched to a specific corps in the Army to serve on active duty or in the National Guard or Reserve. The lieutenant will attend an officer basic course relating to his or her particular military occupational specialty/job. Afterward, the officer will complete advanced training by attending basic officer leadership courses for career progression purposes.

The ROTC curriculum prepares students with the tools, training, and experiences to help cadets succeed as effective leaders in any competitive environment. Army officers serve as leaders, counselors, strategists, and motivators, who lead other soldiers in all situations occurring in ever-changing environments. As trained problem-solvers, key influencers, and planners, they are driven to achieve success with their team on every mission.

He is the son of Jodi De La Zerda of La Vernia and Clinton Huffaker of San Antonio.

Huffaker graduated in 2009 from Byron P. Steele High School in Cibolo.
