ROTC Offers Bonus to Qualified Sophomores


A newly established $5,000 bonus will be awarded to current college sophomores who can pass the challenge of attending cadet basic training.

The U.S. Army is looking for the best and brightest college students in the country to lead America’s soldiers as they conduct operations around the world, from relief efforts in Puerto Rico to combat operations in the middle east. They are seeking college sophomores to join the ROTC and attend basic camp in Fort Knox this summer. Upon successful completion of basic camp, students would be contracted and paid a $5,000 signing bonus.

Upon graduation of college, cadets who have successfully completed the military science requirements will receive a position as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. The cadet may elect to be part of the regular Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard. The wide range of jobs and occupations within the Army requires it to recruit officers from all degree fields.

Interested college sophomores should contact Truman's Army ROTC department at 660.785.4451. They can visit or text “ROTCBONUS” to 462769.
