    The Rolling Thunder Battalion is one of my top choices for AROTC while attending Wheaton College. Does anyone have any experiences with them?
    Thanks,
    Josh

    No experience with the battalion but all my relatives that attended the school loved it. Try contacting a current cadet through the Cadre. It is a small enough ROTC program they may have no one following this forum.

    I have a niece who is currently at Wheaton- She is an Army "brat" and she started out with an AROTC scholarship there. She liked the folks in the ROTC unit but just didn't want to go into the Army and dropped the scholarship. She absolutely loves Wheaton though- is a varsity swimmer, premed student -and even thinks that the food is great which is a first for a college kid in my experience! It is a great school..

    I used to live in Wheaton back when I started becominging interested in ROTC as a middle schooler. I'd always see the ROTC unit out running while on my way to school, and they were definately active in the community. Good school, good unit too!

    I am a cadet in the Rolling Thunder Battalion. I'm glad to hear you decided to join. You probably already know the main things about the battalion. What are your questions? You can find me on facebook: Carson Wren.
