ROTC offers bonus to college sophomores

A newly established $5 thousand bonus will be awarded to current college sophomores who can pass the challenge of attending cadet basic training and accept the mission to lead the finest soldiers in the world.

“We’re looking for high quality college sophomores to join ROTC and attend basic camp here at Fort Knox this summer,” said Major General Christopher P. Hughes, Commanding General, U.S. Army Cadet Command. He added, if they successfully complete basic camp, Cadet Command wants to contract them and pay the $5 thousand signing bonus.

Upon graduation, cadets who have successfully completed the military science requirements will receive a position as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. The cadet may elect to be part of the Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard.

Interested college sophomores should contact Joeseph Masarik in the AUM ROTC department at 334-244-3528. You can also visit the Army ROTC page online or text “ROTCBONUS” to 462769.
