The Army ROTC program was established at the University of Guam on Oct. 19, 1979. Originally christened the Gold Warrior Battalion, the ROTC program’s first military science classes were taught to 44 initial-level and 25 secondary-level cadets in Fall 1980. Enthusiastic participation from the cadets, top-notch instructions from the cadre, and great preparation between the University and its Military Science Department quickly forged an ROTC program that was recognized both nationally and locally for the excellence.
Today, approximately 110 students at UOG are also ROTC cadets, and another 400+ are
presently serving in the Army.
