WHY BECOME A OFFICER ?
Those who succeed in the Army ROTC program are students who excel and want something more out of the college experience. Generally, these students are scholars who keep their grades up, athletes who are physically strong and leaders who have an immense desire to learn.
Only men and women of outstanding character and drive will become U.S. Army Officers. Officers are the managers of the Army. They are tasked with making important decisions in stressful situations, and they are entrusted with the safety of the men and women under their command.
Being an Officer in the U.S. Army will not only serve as a point of pride during your U.S. Army service, but it will also be useful to you in your civilian career. Employers place a high value on the discipline and leadership skills that the Army fosters in its Soldiers. Army Officers are often looked to as prime candidates for management roles and executive positions. From leaders of industry to United States presidents, many began their careers as Army Officers.
A CLEAR FUTURE
The U.S Army and Army Reserve offer training and hands-on experience in hundreds of career paths. From engineering to law, medicine to mathematics, there are few institutions in the world that can match the training and educational services of the Army.
Aside from on-the-job training, the Army has dozens of programs designed to help Soldiers earn a college degree without having to swim through a sea of debt afterwards. The ROTC program for example, allows a young adult to attend college, receive Army training, and a commission as a U.S. Army Officer upon graduation.
There's a reason ROTC Cadets go on to become governors, presidents and CEOs. After Army ROTC, you will have what it takes to balance working with both civilians and enlisted personnel, instilling confidence as an Officer, a leader, a trainer and a mentor.
