The MSU Eagle Battalion has continually provided officers to
the U.S. Army throughout its 38 year history. Since the first commissioning
ceremony with 34 second lieutenants in 1970, Morehead State University ROTC has
commissioned over 600 Officers and continues to provide our nation with quality
The Morehead State University Eagle
Battalion was activated on Jan. 1, 1968, as announced by General Order Number
28, Headquarters, First United States Army, Fort George G. Meade, Maryland,
dated on Feb. 15, 1968. Initially all male MSU students were required to enroll
in ROTC as a requirement for graduation. Since the fall semester of 1971 ROTC
is no longer a requirement for MSU male freshman, but the basic course is still
open to students from any academic major. All ROTC classes at MSU count as
elective credit toward graduation and cadets that receive their commission are
awarded a minor in military science.
The Eagle Battalion has been recognized for excellence
through the years.
The cadets continue to demonstrate the excellence that has served as the foundation of the program since 1970.
Eagle Battalion facilities continue to be among the best in
cadet command with the Eagle Battalion home remaining, since its beginnings, in
the historic Button
Auditorium. This facility, which houses all of our classrooms, offices,
conference room, military library, computer lab, student lounge, drill floor,
supply rooms and an indoor rifle range, recently completed a million dollar
renovation. Join our team and demonstrate that you can be “much more” as a
cadet in the Eagle Battalion. Eagle strong!
The Eagle Battalion has had the fortune of
excellent support from the University leadership throughout its history, which
continues to this day. The MSU President, Dr. Wayne Andrews, is a veteran
himself and served our nation as a soldier and noncommissioned officer in the
Republic of Vietnam.
