Top News: UCCS Mountain Ranger Battalion Earns MacArthur Award
Congratulations Mountain Rangers for earning the MacArthur award three times! The award recognizes the eight schools, selected from among the 275 senior Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) units nationwide, as the top programs in the country. The awards, presented by Cadet Command and the Gen. Douglas MacArthur Foundation, recognize the ideals of "duty, honor and country" as advocated by MacArthur. The award is based on a combination of the achievement of the school's commissioning mission, its cadets' performance and standing on the command's National Order of Merit List and its cadet retention rate. Cadet Command and the MacArthur Foundation have given the awards each year since 1989.
