ROTC/JROTC Recognition Program

The SAR awards the ROTC Medal to foster the principle of the "citizen-soldier", exemplified by the Minutemen of Revolutionary War days.  The award program is conducted in three (3) phases: Local Chapter, State Society and National Society to ROTC or JROTC cadets who are selected for having a high degree of merit with respect to leadership qualities, military bearing and general excellence.  The recipients are selected by the Commanding Officer of the ROTC or JROTC unit, who should be given full latitude in making the selection.

The SAR ROTC Medal is approved by the United States Army, the United States Navy, the United States Marine Corps, and the United States Air Force.  Each service has notified its ROTC and JROTC units of this approval and has authorized presentation to its cadets or midshipmen. 

For ROTC or JROTC units with fewer than 500 cadets or midshipmen, one medal will be awarded each year.  The Arkansas State Society supports many High School JROTC Units and University ROTC Units.
