ROTC Leadership Development graduates first class

FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) - The first regiments of the Army ROTC's Leader Development and Assessment Course has graduated at Fort Knox.

The ceremony on Sunday at Brooks Field put the cadets on course to achieve the rank of 2nd Lieutenant once they finish their college educations

Now that they graduated, the Cadets only need to finish their college education in order to achieve the rank of 2nd Lieutenant.

Simultaneous to their graduation, 35 Cadets from the same regiments took the stage right across the street for their commissioning ceremony.

These Cadets already finished their education and were ready to commission now that they finished course.

The U.S. Army Cadet Command is the largest single source of new officers for the Army.
