ROTC program honored by Sixth Brigade
The ROTC program based at Georgia Southern University has been recognized for producing its required number of line officers and nurses.
Eagle Battalion produced 14 officers and two nurses during fiscal year 2007. It was the only battalion in the entire Sixth Brigade to make its mission in both of those categories.
‘This is a great achievement for our battalion,” said Lt. Brandon Lake, the scholarship enrollment officer for Eagle Battalion. ‘It speaks well of our leadership and our cadets.”
In addition to Georgia Southern University, Eagle Battalion includes ROTC cadets from Armstrong Atlantic State University, Saint Leo University, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Savannah State University.
The Sixth Brigade is comprised of ROTC battalions based at 20 colleges and universities in Georgia, Florida and Puerto Rico.
ROTC graduates are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army.
