Army ROTC Cordell Airborne Ranger Club



The Cordell Airborne Ranger Club is a voluntary club sponsored by cadre in the Palmetto Battalion. The club is named after Captain Terry Cordell-- a graduate of The Citadel and one of the first Special Forces Officers in the US Army--who was killed in action in Vietnam. The purpose of the club is to train cadets on modern infantry tactics. This training not only helps develop leadership skills, it also better prepares cadets for LDAC. The training is very realistic, teaching the latest infantry tactics, techniques and procedures. The Club conducts two FTXs and other training exercises. The club is open to all students and is an excellent opportunity to learn a more about the Army, build camaraderie, and have fun.
