The United States military is getting new officers from Purdue.
The university’s Reserve Officer Training Corps graduated 20 students, Monday, who took the oath of office to join their respective branches of the armed services.
Eight of the graduates are part of the Army program, seven are from the Navy, four from the Air Force, and there was one Marine graduate.
Major Paul Heslin is the Executive Officer for the university’s Army ROTC.
He says the graduates join a special group who has completed the program on the West Lafayette campus.
