Be a Ma'am! Enlist!
Carol Haertlein Sells raised her hand Friday and swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic.
It's the same oath thousands of Army officers have taken before Sells, but the Random Lake woman is different from most second lieutenants finishing Officer Candidate School.
She's being commissioned as a captain; she didn't go to Officer Candidate School; and she has grown children, including a son who is about to deploy on his second trip to Iraq.
Also: Sells is 58.
