67th Annual Michigan R.O.T.C. Awards Banquet

The Michigan ROTC Awards Banquet is one of our Chapter’s signature events which provides our defense community an opportunity to recognize the academic and leadership accomplishments of approximately 90 cadets and midshipmen enrolled in Michigan ROTC programs.

The evening offers a unique occasion for industry to recognize and demonstrate our support to the young men and women within the State of Michigan who will rely on our equipment and services for success in the future as they take on obligations as officers in our Armed Services.
