My name is Jen Hendricks (former Pawlicki), and I had the pleasure of being an AFROTC cadet in Det 225 with Reid back in 2001-2002. As a crosstown cadet, I didn't have the luxury of getting to know my fellow cadets as well as those who were on campus together, but I did have the opportunity to go paintballing with Reid and one of our wingmates, Matt Conners, and we had a blast! As you can see from the photos, I had a bit of a different strategy with my bright yellow pants, while Reid & Matt went the more traditional camo route haha.

I only completed one year of AFROTC before deciding the military wasn't for me, but Reid was always someone that stuck in my mind ever since our paintball outing. Fast forward to today, and I've found my way back to Det 225 as the new staff assistant! I know I have some pretty big shoes to fill after Janet retired in 2019, but I'm over the moon to be here at Notre Dame and helping the current cadets as they journey towards commissioning!
