First to lead...Second to none!

Welcome to the Capital Warrior Battalion. Our Battalion's motto emphasizes the high standards of excellence that each Officer and Cadet in our program seeks to reach in everything we do. We want to offer you the opportunity to become a part of something that will not only further your career and help pay for college, but will also give you a feeling of pride and a sense of purpose.

What is ROTC?

Army ROTC is a collection of college electives along with a summer training program which upon receipt of a Bachelors' Degree, earns the cadet a commission in the U.S. Army, the Army Reserves, or the Army National Guard.

Do you want to be an aviator? A nurse? An engineer? Don't know yet?

No matter what future occupation you desire, we have something for you. The ROTC program is a values based organization that will help you develop important leadership and life skills such as time management, stress management, physical fitness, and responsibility, only to name a few, and all of which will be pertinent in your pursuit of successregardless of your future aspirations.

Even if you have no aspirations to become a leader in the U.S. Army, we can help you develop into a successful student, citizen, and leader in your chosen field.

If the military is something you have always thought about, we have four-, three-, and two-year full tuition scholarships available for those who qualify. For more information please contact:
