Abstract : The future of ROTC is threatened because academia is apathetic or only tolerant of the program, and students show little interest in ROTC since the draft has been discontinued. A need for commissioned officers from ROTC programs for both active and reserve forces will continue for the foreseeable future. Recent comments just published, and discussions with members of academia, Army Officers assigned to ROTC Instructor Groups, and ROTC cadets are the major sources of data. (Modified author abstract)
