Published 5:33 pm Saturday, December 8, 2007

Rodrick K. Hart 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.

Hart, a 2006 graduate of a high school program at Copiah Lincoln Community College, Natchez, has reported to Fort Benning, Columbus, Ga., for basic training in October 2007.
