For the first time in recent memory, the recently commissioned military officers of the NCSU ROTC were collectively recognized at the fall 2010 graduation. The chancellor and graduation speaker Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, commander of the U.S Joint Forces Command, recognized students in the Navy, Air Force and Army.
Capt. Timothy Perrin said, “When they walk out there, they represent the U.S. military. It’s not ROTC, it’s the U.S. military. It’s a joint environment. They’re going to be moving on to a joint environment. We fight together.”
