Maverick Battalion celebrates ROTC's Centennial

Posted on

Cake celebrating 100 years of ROTC

What an honor to be able to participate in Saturday’s Hall of Honor for UTA’s Military Science Department and Cadet Corps Alumni Council. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Army’s Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), and our Maverick Battalion goes back even further - more than 113 years! UTA has proud origins in training and educating military officers. Today’s ceremonies honored the past, recognized distinguished alumni and cadre and, most importantly, highlighted the incredible promise of our current and future cadets in the Maverick Battalion. These young men and women will join the proud tradition of serving honorably in our nation’s defense, and will proudly represent UTA through their service.
