Detroit Mercy ROTC and Veteran Alumni
Homecoming Assembly
Saturday September 29


From 1951-1991, over 4,000 cadets trained on the Campus. Today, Detroit Mercy is ranked 12th in the nation for "Best Colleges for Veterans" by US News and World Report. By working together we can build on these two achievements by creating a Veterans Lounge for student Veterans. Join us to see how you can help!

The Military Balls

Sgt. Cline, Cadet problem solver & Drill Team instructor
Sgt. Donn Kurtz - Rifle Team Moderator
Sgt. Willan Kane - Rifle Team Moderator
Met my Wife, Camille, at the Rifle Range and we were married 62 years before she passed away in 2016.

Really enjoyed my time with the AFROTC at the University

Signed my contract 9/69, and the first lottery was 11/69. I got #25, so, had I not signed my contract, I was likely going on an all expense paid trip to beautiful SE Asia. Then, after commissioning in 8/72, took 12 months educational leave, And when I came back, they asked if I’d like to serve in the reserves.  Great career - XO for an Engineer Construction Company - great duty, great guys in my unit, and no one ever shot at me!!

Going to drill at 0700 on Friday mornings!

Morning PT runs through the University District north of school and playing basketball at Calihan Hall.

I had been in High School ROTC before I started U of D in Feb 1952. The ROTC program was only 1 semester old since starting in Sept 1951. The Army ROTC program was associated with the Corp of Engineers. We were all members of the society if American military engineers and had an active campus organization. I was happy to be guaranteed 2 years active duty in the Engineering Corp. I began to lead the marching training as a Corporal. The Cadets created a voluntary Drill Team -- the U of D Rifles the next year, and received the championship in 1953 or 54. I got an 1/2 year credit of High School ROTC so I went into Advanced, since the draft was still on in 1954 and i wanted to be an Engineering Officer anyway. I graduated in 1957 in uniform to receive my Army commission and Diploma in Architectural Engineering Unfortunately, due to so many Engineers flunking out of school, I was not allowed to go to summer camp until I finished all the courses so I got neither my bars nor diploma then. I went to ROTC summer camp at the age of 23 with lots of younger candidates. I was older than my gung-ho Army training Lt., but I got my LT Bars and orders at camps end. When I returned to campus, I received my diploma. Since the war was over, the Army didn't want all the engineers for 2 years. They had started rebuilding the Reserve's. I went ADT to Quartermaster School at Ft Lee in 1957 and spent 7-1/2 years of active reserve starting in 1958 in San Diego,CA. -- John Mock '57, retired Architect.

Preparation for a rewarding experience with Air Defense Command as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer.

I remember ....

Drill Team Competitition

I still remember the first day I put on the Air Force ROTC uniform, and then walking around my neighborhood in Detroit to show it off.

Pershing Rifles Drill Team

Freshman Drill Team 1962-1963

After completing the DDS program at U of D, I was surprised that the training received allowed me to preform in an outstanding manner when compared to my peers being installed at the same time. I am grateful that U. of D. allowed me to perform in a superior manner as the first black dental officer assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division.

Drill at 7:00am on Friday mornings

Had to be promoted to the Rank of Corporal for my Senior Year --no PFC's as a Senior. Then was promoted to LTC based on my performance and recommendations from Summer Camp at FT Riley

Member of both AFROTC & Army ROTC. Member of Paul B Wurtsmith Squadron, Arnold Air Society.

Many fond memories including Gendarms, DI for Angel Flight, Bunker Hill AFB and more. 
One class taught by Capt. Gil Amelio entitled "You Can Always Trust a Communist (to be a Communist) was one of the best management classes at Uof D and served me well in my years since.

After graduation in June, 1965 I attended Army ROTC Summer Camp at Ft. Riley, KS, after which I was commissioned a 2LT in the Corps of Engineers. After Engineer training at Ft. Belvoir, VA I served 13 months in Korea with the 2nd Engineer Combat Battalion as part of the 2nd Infantry Div. on the DMZ. I then finished my active duty with the Army Engineer School at Ft. Belvoir. To this day I've remained in contact with several of my ROTC cadet classmates, especially those from U. of D. High.
