GMC Ranked Second in Nation by US Army Cadet Command

(Milledgeville, GA) June 10, 2003 – The United States Army Cadet Command announced rankings for cadet Senior ROTC battalions on June 9, 2003. Of the 272 schools, which offer these programs, Georgia Military College was ranked number two in the nation. MAJ Tom Hall, USA and Professor of Military Science for GMC, said, “The ranking is based mostly on a school’s number of commissions as compared to the school’s mission (goal). GMC’s mission this year was 20, and by the end of the fiscal year (September 30) we’ll have commissioned 39 – 41.” MAJ Hall credits the Military Science Department and the Admissions Office, for their efforts in recruiting students to participate in the Early Commissioning Program. In addition to recruiting, the Military Science Department is also responsible for ensuring the students receive the best possible training during their two years at GMC. Georgia Military College’s Early Commissioning Program is one of only five such programs in the nation. This demanding program forces cadets to develop the skills necessary to be leaders in the United States Army within a period of two years. MAJ Hall expects that GMC will have 50 commissions in the program during the next school year.
