The Governors Guard Detachment is not a typical ROTC detachment. Our proximity to Fort Campbell, Kentucky (20 minutes) means that we have some exceptional training opportunities available to us. These opportunities include the use of multi-million dollar simulation facilities, hands-on training with helicopters and other Army equipment, and Army Air Assault School. Additionally, about one third of our cadets are former soldiers from Fort Campbell who bring a wealth of prior service knowledge and experience to the classroom and labs.
Here, you will learn to be an officer and a leader. Being an officer in the US Army means you are a strategist, a motivator, and a counselor. As an officer, you will lead Soldiers in all situations and adapt to constantly changing environments. You will be trained and driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.
As a Cadet in APSU’s Governors Guard, you’ll be part of a battalion consistently ranked as one of the best of its kind. For example:
