Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) – Southern Strike Battalion

Welcome! Army ROTC is one of the best leadership courses in the country. During classes, leadership labs, physical training and field training exercises, you will learn firsthand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and be commissioned into the Active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard and become a leader for life.

Honor, integrity and personal courage are three of the values Army Officers embody in their pursuit of mission accomplishment and personal excellence. By standing as examples of the leadership skills honed through centuries of Army achievements, today’s Officers set the standard.

They serve our nation with distinction in peace and in war. As leaders, Commissioned Officers constantly validate themselves as Army Strong by having the strength to inspire strength in others.
