Lovec graduates from basic training
October 18, 2019
Private Annette Lovec graduated from basic combat training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri on September 26. Her mother, Melissa Lovec, and sister, Holland Lovec, traveled to attend the short ceremony held at 9 a.m. that morning.
Lovec will now stay at Fort Leonard Wood where she will complete her advanced individual training to become a horizontal construction engineer (military occupational specialty 12N). These soldiers use bulldozers and other heavy equipment to help complete construction projects. In other words, horizontal construction engineers help pave the way for their fellow soldiers. The training takes eight weeks and two days.
Lovec joined the Army National Guard prior to graduating from Carter County High School in 2019. She is the daughter of Eric and Melissa Lovec of Ekalaka.
