  • Friday, June 8th marked a particularly special day for 8 young men and women. Not only were they graduating from MIT, a noteworthy accomplishment in itself, they were also receiving their commission as an officer in the United States military. As they stood aside the USS Constitution, they each repeated their commissioning oath in front of their friends, family and us – the cadre members of the ROTC units at MIT.

  • On the morning of Friday, February 23 close to 50 cadets of the Paul Revere Army ROTC Battalion based at MIT took part in their annual Combat Water Survival Training. While many of their fellow classmates were sleeping in and getting ready for the weekend, these student-soldiers were honing their skills of adapting their combat uniforms and equipment to an aquatic environment at the Zesiger Center at MIT. This training is vital under the current operating environment due to the high incidence of water-related casualties among soldiers deployed abroad.
