A Word From the Professor of Military Science

Shippensburg University Army ROTC - 5 Decades and still going Army Strong 

I want to personally extend warmest regards and thanks to our distinguished graduates, our department’s supporters, and 5 decades of Army Officers from Shippensburg University ROTC.  I am personally humbled and grateful for the experience to come back and lead the organization where I was commissioned in 1996.  These are extremely exciting times here at Shippensburg and in our program.  I am so amazed by the quality of the Cadets, their commitment to Service, and their eagerness to uphold the legacy we all are a part of.  The program is strong and commissioning outstanding officers for all components of the Army.   

Shippensburg University Army ROTC is at a critical juncture.  We can no longer delay in establishing a strong and enduring alumni organization that is capable of positive influence for the future of the Raider Battalion.  We could use your help in two areas.  First, we need to improve and update our records in order to achieve the broadest possible circulation of a semesterly newsletter.  The newsletter is written and designed by Cadets in order to connect our future with our past.   Any updates on addresses or where alumni are at in the world is greatly appreciated.  Second, we need a collective voice and organization that can muster resources to make our Cadets more competitive, either through influence or donations. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter and assisting in passing our message along.  It is our goal to make this newsletter endure by inculcating our Cadets with Raider tradition and their role in making a difference for future generations of Officers from Shippensburg University.  We also intend to use this as a mechanism to communicate links to our Facebook page, events such as an alumni mixers, and ways to stay connected.  Thank you again for your Service and your interest in Shippensburg University Army ROTC.
