In brief

'Lobo Battalion' joins U.S. Army Cadet Command

The United States Army Cadet Command and UNM will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the “Lobo Battalion” to officially mark its activation into the U.S. Army Cadet Command on Thursday, Sept. 4 at 4:30 p.m. on the lawn near Scholes Hall and the Maxwell Museum.

“This is the first time that the ROTC program has existed in full with its own department and staff located at the University,” said Major Hans F. Hunt.

An Army ROTC program did exist in the early 1990’s, but was an extension program of New Mexico State University, he said.
