    DS has chosen Rutgers NROTC over 3 AROTC offers. However, RU's NROTC battalion just started last year. Does anyone have any info on them? DS has spoken with a few of the Cadre and is pretty psyched. Cant find any online info though. Did find a small page on FB.

    I had looked recently as well and couldn't find anything either. Unless someone from the battalion is on here I doubt you'll hear very much. I would think, since it's a new battalion, that the leadership opportunities will abound. It also means DS will be expected to step up and fill some very early on... certainly by second semester of freshman year. Hey, maybe he could volunteer to set up and manage a web page! I would also expect it to be a very close knit group. Not, that they all aren't, but probably more so in a new and I'm sure still small unit. :thumb:

    That is the exact reason he chose this particular battalion as opposed to the other much larger battalions he was offered. I find it to be a great opportunity for him. From what I understand there weren't many NROTC offered to RU.

    Cadre

    Weinerdog: can you post or PM me the contact information for Rutgers NROTC FB and Cadre. DS has not been able to reach anyone and would really like to establish contact.
