ROTC Coverage Added Recently
- 10 April 2018 Harvard Crimson column "M16s and MREs: Real weapons, military rations, college kids, no sleep—what could possibly go wrong?" by Garce M. Chao '19. Note: A Harvard Army ROTC student discusses how ROTC training involves nontrivial real-life thinking and wider lessons. "You can perfectly plot your points, plan an ingenious route, shoot perfect compass azimuths, but the woods and terrain will still have the final say" and "as is the case with many events in Army ROTC, the ultimate goal of seemingly irrelevant training is not necessarily developing perfect compass skills, but developing the mental skills to stay calm and collected under pressure... The goal is to develop resilient leaders and effective communicators. Every cadet will need those soft skills, whether they’re leading a real Infantry platoon or commanding a Cyber task force."
