Indiana University of Pennsylvania Army ROTC
Army officers lead people, travel the world, and get things done, all while earning a professional salary, enjoying a great quality of life, and building a secure financial future for themselves and their families. No matter what branch you choose, you won't find yourself spending 20 or 30 years doing one job behind a desk. The Army will give you the opportunity to perform different jobs every 2 or 3 years. The rotation process enables every Army officer to become qualified in his or her branch. Whether you serve three years or thirty, you’ll leave the Army proud of what you achieved and ready for the next phase in your career.
