Answering the call of duty: Over 100 commission in the armed services from the Class of 2017


The Citadel commissions more officers in the armed services than almost any other college in the country. The Class of 2017 includes more than 100 cadets who are now America’s newest military officers serving in every branch of service. Family, friends and loved ones helped pin the new officers during commissioning ceremonies for each branch on May 5 held in Summerall Chapel.

The Citadel’s ROTC departments provide cadets with officer training during college to allow them to begin their military careers as officers after graduation. Approximately a third of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets answer the call of duty to serve the country.
