Cadet Kate Kozain is Alpha Company’s Cadet of the Month for October 2013. Cadet Kate Kozain born April 21st 1994 , hails from New London, New Hampshire. Cadet Kozain is consistently one of the most motivated Cadets in Alpha Company and serves as an exemplary role model to her peers.

She studies a challenging subject (neuroscience) and maintains a high GPA.
