Army ROTC cadets enjoy inner tubing in Golden Colorado

“ Army ROTC is about having good times with great friends. ROTC has helped me meet lots of people from all over the country, many of whom I never would have hung out with otherwise. ”

Cadet Alex Warren, Santa Clarita, CA


The Ranger Challenge is an opportunity for schools to "compete" with each other completing military tasks. In addition to a written examination where Cadets test their Army knowledge, there are physical fitness drills and field exercises. Battalions leave a Ranger Challenge with stronger bonds and sharper skills.


The National Society of Pershing Rifles gives Army ROTC Cadets the opportunity to develop to the highest degree possible. Cadets can take part in precision trick rifle drill teams that provide them with the outstanding traits of leadership, military bearing and discipline.
