Cyclone Battalion Wins MacArthur Award

The Army ROTC Battalion here at ISU won the MacArthur Award, given to the best Army ROTC program west of the Mississippi River. I know a few of their cadets (including Zack McVey, who was quoted in the article) and they do have a solid program. I thought this statistic was particularly impressive: "Cadets who are between their junior and senior years are rated while training in Fort Lewis, Wash. ISU sent 18 cadets to the annual training last summer. Four of ISU's group were rated in the top 10 percent overall of the 3,800 cadets rated nationally."
