Vision: The Dauntless Battalion is a storied military organization producing courageous and determined future leaders of the U.S. Army. Founded upon the pillars of hard work, humility and empathy, these men and women are prepared for the rigors of warfare with an unshakable will to win.
Army ROTC is the largest officer-producing organization with the American military, having over 600,000 men and women have earned a commission through the program. Among them are two chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, seven Army chiefs of staff, two Cabinet secretaries and a sitting Supreme Court associate justice. Few other military commissioning sources can claim such significant lineage.
Throughout the last hundred years, the U.S. and its Army faced numerous challenges both at home and abroad. Wars against despotic foreign governments were fought and won; economic depressions endured; medical, scientific and technological advances were made; and U.S.-led peacekeeping operations contributed to greater global stability.
