Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) cadets participate in a team-building exercise that involves constructing rafts and maneuvering around buoys without the rafts falling apart.
After graduating from ROTC, cadets can fulfill their service commitment in the Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard. If they choose the Guard or Reserve path, they can pursue both military and civilian careers at the same time.
