HONOLULU — The Army ROTC unit at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa was recently recognized as being in the top 15 percent of the United States Army Cadet Command‘s 271 units for the school year 2002-2003. The accomplishment demonstrates excellence in the overall Army ROTC program and the hard work and competence of the UH Mānoa cadets.

"The Warrior Battalion is proud of their record of accomplishment and grateful for its positive reflection on our university and the great state of Hawaiʻi," said Lt. Col. James Johnson, professor of military science at UH Mānoa. "The University of Hawaiʻi system has demonstrated true aloha spirit in maintaining a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the Army ROTC program."

Johnson added, "The program continues its mission to seek talented scholars, athletes and leaders who exhibit the potential to develop into proficient, confident and capable lieutenants."

The Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program provides college-trained officers with commissions as lieutenants in the U.S. Army, Hawaiʻi Army National Guard, and the U.S. Army Reserve. Officers may be commissioned on active duty, in a reserve component while pursuing a civilian career, or receive an additional delay and earn a graduate or professional degree. Four-year, three-year, and two-year programs are available under the military science program at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
