Oregon State ROTC to hold annual Joint Service Review on May 5


CORVALLIS, Ore. – Cadets in all four branches of Oregon State University’s Reserve Officer Training Corps will assemble May 5 in the Memorial Union quad for the annual Joint Service Review.

The review starts at 10 a.m. and is free of charge.

The event traces its roots to 1918, and this spring will mark its 70th consecutive year.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Curt Loop will review OSU’s cadets in Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force ROTC. Loop is an Oregon State alumnus who was commissioned in 1966 and retired in 2003.

There will be three tented seating areas in front of the Memorial Union steps. Seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Event organizers expect multiple government and university officials to attend. The public is encouraged to arrive early for an opportunity to visit with those people and with ROTC personnel.
