Where Leaders Are Grown

What is Army ROTC all about? Motivating young people to be better leaders and citizens, while making the best military officers in the world.  The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC), as it exists today, began with President Wilson signing the National Defense Act of 1916.  Although military training had been taking place in civilian colleges and universities as early as 1819, the signing of the National Defense Act brought this training under single, federally-controlled entity: The Reserve Officers' Training Corps.  Army ROTC is the largest officer-producing organization with the American military, having commissioned more than half a million second lieutenants since its inception.
