UH Mānoa’s Army ROTC named one of the best in the nation

News Release from UH Manoa, August 28, 2015 


The Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) program at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa has been honored with a MacArthur Award, signifying that it is one of the top eight university ROTC units in the nation.

UH Mānoa’s Army ROTC was named best battalion within the Eighth Brigade, which consists of the 30 senior Army ROTC programs on the West Coast, as well as in Alaska, Guam and Hawaiʻi. This is the fourth time that the school has received the award, with previous recognition in 2008, 2002 and 2001.

The MacArthur Award recognizes the top schools in eight brigades, selected from among the 275 senior ROTC programs nationwide.

Criteria for the award include performance on the Cadet National Order of Merit list, cadet retention ratio, quality and performance of military training and newly commissioned second lieutenants.

The awards, presented by the U.S. Army Cadet Command and the General Douglas MacArthur Foundation, recognize the military ideals of “duty, honor and country,” as advocated by General Douglas MacArthur.

“It is an extreme honor to bring this prestigious award to the University of Hawaiʻi,” said Lt. Col. John P. Carson IV, professor of military science at UH Mānoa. “The UH Army ROTC program is in the business of growing highly qualified leaders of character for the nation, and this recognition confirms that this is exactly what we are doing.”
