The Fighting Saints Battalion has been proud to help develop the leaders of tomorrow.

The stated purpose of our program is to prepare the future leaders of America to receive a commission as a United States Army Officer. To do this, the Fighting Saints Battalion Cadre uses several methods and tools: Classroom Teaching: ROTC students are of course attending college, and some aspects of military knowledge can be taught best in the classroom. These include management skills, troop leading procedures, map reading, and other leadership basics. Leadership Laboratories: About once a month all cadets participate in outdoor training activities and involve skills that are best taught outside a classroom environment, such as terrain walks to improve land navigation, squad tactics, and survival training. Field Training Exercises (FTX): The FTX is ROTC's most demanding training tool. One weekend a semester is reserved for the Battalion to train at Camp Ripley, MN where the student is completely immersed in an Army-style training environment. FTX's are meant to simulate the conditions that MSIII's (Juniors) will face at the Leader Development Advanced Course at Ft. Lewis, WA.
