NROTC unit announces Naval officer assignments

Thirty-eight midshipmen and active duty officer candidates in The Citadel Naval ROTC have been selected for commission and were informed of their service selection in October.

Throughout the nation hundreds NROTC midshipmen and active duty students are learning what they will be doing after graduation and commissioning for the next four years of their lives. Most graduates will be serving as line officers in the Navy, while some will go on to medical schools to continue their education.

Midshipmen (all cadets) and officer candidates (all active duty sailors enrolled in the Seaman-to-Admiral 21 program) are ranked by order of merit against their peers nationally. This merit order is compared to the desired "dream sheets" that the students submitted prior to the start of their senior year and from it service assignments are made. It is a highly competitive process taking into account the student's academic, physical and professional performance during their time in the unit.

Congratulations to the class of 2013 Naval officers.
