Every Marine is a rifleman.
As part of America's expeditionary force, a Marine is a global leader trained to meet operational demands, both on the battlefield and in the classroom. Each Marine is field tested and expected to perform at the highest levels of achievement at ALL times. Marine is not just a title but a commitment to duty, honor, and selfless service to their fellow man.
As a Marine, you will be expected to lead under pressure, handle challenging decisions, and position yourself as an example to others. The Marine Platoon at the Naval ROTC unit at Kennesaw State is designed to prepare officers who can lead Marines in order to accomplish these tasks. For more information visit NROTC Atlanta Marines.
