Cadet Chain of Command

The Gateway ROTC program is organized into a single battalion run by the senior Cadets (MSIV’s). The battalion is then subdivided into three companies which are run and administrated by the junior MSIII Cadets, to help them train as small unit leaders in preparation for the Advanced Camp. Advanced camp is where the MSIII cadets leadership abilities and military competence are evaluated against their peers to assist in the determination of their national ranking for branching.

The Cadet chain of command is the organizational body which runs cadet activities. The three core leaders of this team are the BCO Madison Schneider, the XO Adam Messer, and the CSM Sean Rogers. The S-shops have individual responsibilities which range from maintaining cadet rosters to planning every operation we do.
