The pride you and your family will feel when you become a United States Army Officer will be unforgettable.

“ I've had several opportunities to be a leader so far in my ROTC career…One of the biggest things ROTC has taught me about leadership is that it is all about confidence and competence. As long as you are confident in yourself and competent, people will follow you. ”

Adam Rively, Johnstown, PA
