ROTC Holds Commissioning Ceremony

Dec. 13 ROTC commissioning

Hofstra University’s Military Science Department held its Winter Commissioning Ceremony today, at the Guthart Theater in the Axinn Library.  Katie Jacques was commissioned as a 2LT officer in the United States Army and will be entering the Military Police Corps.

LTC David L. Daniel, professor and chair of military science, spoke in the highest regard of 2LT Jacques, remarking that she is among the best cadets that the Hofstra ROTC program has produced. She received the designation DMG, Distinguished Military Graduate, which means she ranks among the top 10 percent of the approximate 5,600 commissioned cadets in the nation.

Hofstra is a host university for the ROTC on Long Island. Being a host university, students from many Long Island universities participate in the Hofstra-based program. 2LT Jacques is graduating from Molloy College with a major in criminal justice.
