A Brief History

Radford University Army ROTC began in 1970's as a part of the New River Battalion along with Virginia Tech's Corp of Cadets in Blacksburg, Virginia. Each year the Radford University ROTC commissions 2nd Lieutenants into the Army, Army Reserves, and Army National Guard. We are very proud of our program and the young soldiers who leave here each year to continue to serve our country. Any young person looking for a rewarding and challenging career can find it here. To learn more about the history of ROTC click here.
