This past Summer, Brock had the opportunity to work for New Mexico Congresswoman, Yvette Herrell, in Washington D.C. While working in Washington, he was able to meet with many members of the Texas Delegation, including Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Senator Ted Cruz. Through this experience, Brock was also able to sit down with former Aggie Cadet and Congressman, Ronny Jackson, who also served as the Physician to the President under both President Obama and President Trump’s presidential terms.
Upon graduating from Texas A&M, Brock plans to commission into the United States Air Force, where he has received a pilot training spot. He hopes to one day fly fighter jets with the Air Force.
“I love Texas A&M and the Corps of Cadets and am forever grateful for the people, memories, and opportunities that have been set before me because I’m an Aggie. This place is my home, and there is no place on earth as special as this university,” Brock said of his experience with the Corps.
