"Thinking is the worst." ROTC Captain Tilton
Captain Colin Tilton of the Ohio University ROTC recently moved to Athens, Ohio, after being in the army for eight years. Moving from Eugene, Oregon, leaving behind his wife and one of his dogs, Tilton brought their other dog, Cora with him as a tie to his wife. They both are currently working toward another degree; Colin with an MBA and his wife a law degree. Between ROTC, teaching classes and homework, Tilton also enjoys working out, playing videogames and taking Cora for a walk. “Yeah, she has been really depressed recently but other dogs seem to be cheering her up, so I need to find a dog park to take her to,” Tilton says while petting Cora before their daily walk.
