    Interesting article from VMI web site on Army ROTC at VMI. The AF and Navy no longer allow cadets who won't commission to stay in their programs so they are defaulting to Army (all cadets have to take 4 years of ROTC but they don't have to commission).

    Why won't they do with those who are not commissioning like the Army does?


    Or is this because the Army is better funded/more money?

    Most commisioned officers?

    The following quote in the article is attributed to Col. Bill Wanovich-Commanding Officer of VMI ROTC:

    “In spite of the huge numbers, we continue to train them [the cadets] well and they continue to perform well,” said Wanovich, “and we will commission more kids through ROTC at VMI this year than from any other school in the nation.”

    Is this currently true or a goal of VMI? Just wondering
