“ The TCU Army ROTC program was an extraordinary experience that I can personally attest greatly contributed to my success in the U.S.Army.Before my arrival to the TCU Army ROTC program, I was well informed of the expectations that I would have to uphold while attending this prestigious program. I entered the program with 10 years of active duty time, to include three combat tours. As soon as I reported to the ROTC, I knew I had selected a program that was family oriented and would prepare me to be a valuable asset to my next organization.The TCU Army ROTC program enhanced my leadership and analytical skills that have proven to be beneficial in my transition from enlisted to the officer ranks. I have utilized the knowledge, additional skill sets, and work ethnic gained from this top-tier program to build up my network and graduate the top of my class in other military courses. ”
