ROTC Commissioning Ceremony

Friends and family are invited to celebrate the commissioning of the recent CCU Army ROTC graduates. The ceremony begins with the singing of ‘The Army Song’ and the National Anthem. Then a guest speaker, usually a retired officer, gives words of advice and encouragement to the soon-to-be officers. Finally, Cadets take an oath to their country, sealing their admittance into the Officer Corps of the United States Army. In accordance with tradition, family members or friends pin the 2nd lieutenant’s rank onto the shoulders of the new officers. After years of training, the newly commissioned officers are finally a part of a long legacy of America’s finest leaders.
