One of the best ways to see if Army ROTC is right for you is to learn how alumni have benefited from the experience. Our program was founded in 1952 and beginning with the first commissioning class of 1955 we have commissioned 1,177 Officers into the Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard.
Our alumni include multiple General Officers, Brigade Commanders, the current Chief of Staff of the Maryland Army National Guard, civilian leaders, and one NASA astronaut. Recent alumni have commissioned into the Active Duty Army and begun their careers serving full-time, while many others have decided to serve part-time in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard in order to pursue civilian careers. One of our 2013 alumni had the distinction of becoming the first female from our program to serve in the Field Artillery Branch, a career field that had previously been closed to women.
