Cameron University ROTC program ranked in top three nationally

Cameron University’s Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program has been selected as the third-place winner of Outstanding Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps Unit Award by the Order of the Founders and Patriots of America (OFPA). OFPA is a civilian organization that has been preserving patriotism for more than 100 years. Cameron’s Comanche Battalion was evaluated along with 272 other university programs on total training performance, recruiting, and achievement of mission to contribute to commission the very best young men and women that America has to offer. This marks the first time the Comanche Battalion, the top-ranked battalion in the 5th Brigade, has been honored with the award.

“This recognition by OFPA is a great honor,” says Lt. Col. Rod Boles, Chair, George D. Keathley Department of Military Science. “We have high standards for our Army ROTC program, and it is rewarding to see that those standards are garnering national attention.”

Cameron University’s Comanche Battalion is dedicated to recruiting, training, developing and commissioning qualified and motivated students by preparing them for the challenge of leadership as commissioned officers in the United States Army
