A newly commissioned ensign has his rank pinned on his uniform during an NROTC commissioning ceremony.
Last year, Texas A&M commissioned 211 officers – the highest number since 1980, and the most officers commissioned among the Senior Military Colleges! This May alone we commissioned 138 cadets into the Armed Forces. By the end of the year in December 2018, we expect to commission over 220 of our cadets into the military – an indication of the confidence that the Department of Defense has in our Corps to produce some of our country’s finest military officers.
Texas A&M is extremely proud of the young Aggie officers who have chosen to serve our country in the military during a time of war. We should all be proud of the tradition of service to our great nation that our cadets continue to display – a tradition that spans over 140 years.
