University of Southern Mississippi Army ROTC will install a new
chain of command, honor special achievement, and recognize cadets
on Aug. 26. The ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. in the George Hurst
Building theatre. The new chain of command will assume duties and
responsibilities this semester for the leadership of the ROTC cadet
corps at Southern Miss.
Also at this ceremony, 17 cadets will be recognized
for successfully completing the Leader Development and Assessment
Course conducted at Fort Lewis, Wash., and an additional seven cadets
for completing the Leader's Training Course at Fort Knox, Ky.
The Leader Development and Assessment Course is a
32-day course normally attended by cadets between their junior and
senior years, and the Leader's Training Course is a 28-day course
typically taken by cadets between their sophomore and junior years.
Successful completion of the Leader's Training Course qualifies
these seven cadets for entry into the Army ROTC Advanced Course
during their junior and senior years.
The public is cordially invited to attend the installation
of the new cadet chain of command and recognition of Southern Miss
Army ROTC cadets for their achievements.
The Southern Miss Army ROTC program commissions approximately
20 second lieutenants each year, making it the largest ROTC program
in the state. The program is led by Lt. Col. Kevin Dougherty, professor
of military science. For additional information, please contact
