    The star shooter of North Salem Vikings Army JROTC in Oregon is 16-year-old Taylor Gibson. For three years, she’s been recognized as one of the best air rifle shooters in the country. Now, after an incredible performance at 2017 JROTC National Air Rifle Championship in Anniston, Alabama, Gibson has her gold medal, and set a new Army overall shooting record, according to a release from the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Gibson shot a 3×20 score of 597-48x, and left with a two-day overall score was 1290.1. According to guns.com, in order to have this score, Gibson could only have missed two...

America is reeling as details of an apparent Islamic terrorist attack at the Ohio State University campus are still breaking. However, while everyone is trying to figure out who the attacker is and if they were affiliated with ISIS, one student shocked the nation when she revealed what...

    As a suspect carried out a savage attack at Ohio State University on Monday, members of the U.S. military in one classroom heroically stood by the door to protect others, a student told CNN. “We have quite a few military men in our class, who are actually all standing by the doors, keeping us safe,” OSU student Molly Clarke said. “I’m feeling pretty good about that.” It's possible Clarke was referring to Ohio State ROTC cadets.

    The Army’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program, which has delivered military training at colleges and universities since 1916, has been ordered to tape their guns in high viz orange for safety. The news, reported by The Washington Post this week, comes after incidents where students and faculty have mistaken drills by cadets with inert guns as dangerous active shooters. Now, under the orders of Maj. Gen. Christopher P. Hughes, the 250 Army ROTC units and 700 affiliates will conduct on campus training with simulated weapons (using empty hands mimicking carrying guns) while taking extra precautions in transport and storage...

    RedState's own Leon Wolf did a great job exposing the Politico story about Ben Carson and West Point as a lie. Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel is also churning out great information on Twitter regarding the story. I want to focus on what Donald Trump is doing with the story, however. Yesterday, November 5, Donald Trump had this to say about Politico: Look, Politico is so dishonest in so many different things. This Politico website or whatever the hell they call it, I mean, they write about me. We don't deal with them anymore because the level of dishonesty is...

    The next question is from Bill. He wanted to know if it was true that I was offered a slot at West Point after high school. Bill, that is true. I was the highest student ROTC member in Detroit and was thrilled to get an offer from West Point. But I knew medicine is what I wanted to do. So I applied to only one school. (it was all the money I had). I applied to Yale and thank God they accepted me. I often wonder what might have happened had they said no.

    I never thought I'd see the day when Freepers let the lying leftist media lead them around by the nose. I am a Cruz supporter. I also like Trump and Carson. Politico is doing a massive distortion smear on Carson, typical of the leftist media machine. They are very sophisticated at using lies and distortion and making it seem based on truth and objective analysis. If one wants to accept the leftist narrative and run with the leftist pack because it feels god, so be it. Yet don't cry when the same is done to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz,...

    A federal court ruled yesterday that a Sikh college student must be allowed to enroll in Army ROTC without shaving his beard, cutting his hair, or removing his turban. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson acted in the case of Hofstra University student Iknoor Singh, who had been barred by the U.S. Army from enrolling in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program because of his religious practices. The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a college-based program for training commissioned officers of the United States Armed Forces.

    So. Are we done now? And they were forced to do this, many commenters claimed: "They were threatened with negative counselling statements and OERs if they didn’t participate. It was pretty much" do this or we’ll kill your career before it even starts.'" "Someone head to IG with this? Pretty sure this was a forced activity." "Worthless ROTC commanders need to get booted for this incompetence. As a combat vet this sickens me and is a setback for women in the military." I blame the high command of the armed forces. There should be rampant resignations over Obama's maladministration --...

    Making the general public aware about tough issues that need addressing is obviously a good thing. But there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about doing it. A Reddit post supposedly containing a message from the cellphone of a cadet has raised questions concerning an allegedly mandatory ROTC event. In the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event, cadets were required to wear high heels and march to “raise awareness of sexual assault against women.”

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | November 10, 2014 | Malcolm A. Kline
    This week Americans honor military veterans. On America’s college campuses, the attitude towards them is more ambivalent, at least when their presence on them is compared to their visibility in the rest of America. For one thing, not every campus is closed for Veterans Day. To be sure, many businesses stay open upon that day as well. Moreover, as the Veteran’s Administration web site notes, “there is no legal requirement that schools close on Veterans Day.” Nevertheless, veterans on campus are few and far between. With the possible exception of Troy University, you will find few colleges and universities on...

We’re asking unregistered runners to just stand on the sidelines and...

    The president of Clemson University is chastising those who booed President Barack Obama during the college’s Military Appreciation Day at last weekend's game. During the university’s annual event that was held this year during the Clemson vs. Virginia Tech game on Saturday, a ceremony was held to induct ROTC cadets into the military. The ceremony was disrupted by booing from some fans in the stands. In an email with the subject line, “Dear Clemson Family: Focus on Positive Dialogue and a Civil Discourse,” Clemson University president James Barker addressed the behavior at the football game.
