Three USM Cadets from the Army ROTC Wildcat Battalion, Bravo Company, began their careers as Army officers on May 11, the day they were commissioned as second lieutenants during the Spring Commissioning Ceremony held at the University of Southern Maine, Portland Campus.
Close to 100 family members, friends, university staff and faculty, as well as Army ROTC Cadre, current cadets, and special guests attended the time-honored ceremony, and eagerly watched as each 2LT received their gold bars, took the Oath of Commissioned Officers, and returned their first salute.
Congratulations to these newly-minted Army officers and USM graduates! Pictured left to right:
