When it comes to preparing for the future, few organizations match the U.S. Army. From your first day, you'll maximize your potential and acquire the confidence, self-discipline, leadership, and teamwork skills that will help you in any path you choose in life.
While working in any one of the many exciting job fields, you'll develop the physical and mental strengths needed for success. You can serve full time in the active Army, or choose the Army Reserve and train in your community — ready to serve full time if needed. You'll achieve personal growth through positive experiences and accomplish things you never thought possible.
We're a people-oriented organization. Consequently, leadership and management skills are essential in our training program. ROTC provides you with the opportunity to become a college-educated leader and manager. That's how you get the edge over everyone else, regardless of your chosen profession in life. You are what Army Officership is and have employment in an organization which offers competitive medical, dental, housing and retirement benefits. Let's say you decide to move on after a few years and pursue a civilian profession. No problem, when you join the civilian work force you will have no problem grasping what new concepts and have a great foundation and depth of experience you can draw from.
Whatever path you decide, the experience you'll gain from serving as a United State Army Cadet and Officer will give you the confidence you need to be a success in college and beyond. You'll have the edge on life because many employers know and respect Army service.
The United States Army is an excellent place to fly for several reasons. First, the Army accepts all academic majors into the Aviation branch- no prior flight experience required. There is a wide variety of rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft to train and fly in from AH-64D Apache Longbows to C23 Gulfstream IVs.
Build flight time and experience in a dynamic and exciting environment, all while receiving excellent pay and full military benefits. In addition, Army aviators gain from the leadership experience the Army provides; Second Lieutenants will initially command and be responsible for a platoon of four helicopters, their crew and all the necessary support equipment.
Maybe flying is not for you. If this is the case, the Army has plenty of career opportunities that might interest you. The Army has 16 major functional areas (branches) that are available to ROTC graduates. From being in the next generation of paratroopers with the Infantry branch to designing and helping construct major civil engineering projects with the Corps of Engineers.
Here is a list of a few of the major branches:
|Operations Division (OD)||Operations Support Division (OSD)||Force Sustainment Division (FSD)|
