Cutbacks in Army commissions definitely will not affect the ROTC unit here, Lt. Col. Trevor N. Dupuy, professor of Military Science and Tactics, said yesterday.
An Army memorandum last September warned that budgetary limitations might deprive certain seniors across the country of their ROTC commissions. The Department of the Army, however, has notified Dupuy that the College unit can commission all 72 of its graduates, Dupuy said.
"If a senior passes his ROTC courses and graduates from the College, he will become a second lieutenant in June," Dupuy stated.
Other schools, however, will be affected by the budgetary cutback. Units offering instruction in non-combat branches of the Army such as the Quartermaster and Signal Corps, will not be able to commission all of their graduates.
Dupuy pointed out in October that since the College's unit is in field artillery, a cut was less likely here than at other schools.
