We’ve had a great semester to-date here at MIT’s Army ROTC. Several exciting events have happened since September. Our semester kicked off with the Fall Field Training Exercise on September 26 – 28th at Ft. Devens in Ayer, MA. Over 80 cadets participated through what proved to be a memorable experience. Cadets participated in exercises including a Leadership Reaction Course (LRC), a Confidence Course and Basic Land Navigation. Despite the not so pleasant weather, the Army persevered through the weekend.
The Army then hosted the Joint Sports Competition on October 24th, pitting cadets and midshipmen from the MIT Army, Air Force, and Navy/Marine ROTC programs against each other on the fields of friendly strife. Camaraderie and good sportsmanship were shared by all as the Navy ROTC program defended the Commanders Cup trophy.
