We Salute 100 Years of ROTC at Georgia Tech

In the past 100 years, Georgia Tech has counted among its alumni thousands of commissioned officers in all four branches of the United States Military. Tech has educated the nation’s top military leaders, including dozens of generals and admirals, aces and astronauts, and three Medal of Honor recipients.

More than a century ago on the eve of World War I, Tech students formed a Signal Corps, performed drills, and did everything they could to help defend the United States. From these humble beginnings, a rich tradition of military service was born. This year we celebrate 100 years of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) at Georgia Tech.

“I see public service, whether on the local or national level, as a personal obligation. I constantly reflect on the support network I have been blessed with, and regularly ask myself if I have given back to the people and institutions that have allowed me to succeed. Joining ROTC, and by extension, later the Army, was one such way to give back. It is a remarkable thing that the combined work of a team of individuals can do so much more than their individual tasks alone. That kind of power changes the world.”

- Mahdi Al Husseini, double major in public policy and biomedical engineering, and an Army ROTC Cadet
