Educating Future Leaders of the US Army

In keeping with our educational mission, our chapter actively undertakes efforts to educate future leaders of the U.S.Army. We do this through support of the programs that generate future Army leaders. Our efforts include supporting US Army Cadet Command through local JROTC and Senior ROTC Programs, raising awareness of available national scholarship programs, such as the Army Scholarship Foundation.
