Senior Reserve Officer Training Corps.
Worn from:
16 September 1979 - Current.

The building depicts institutions of higher learning, of
which Army Reserve Officer Training Corps is an integral
part, and indicates that the Reserve Officer Training Corps
develops leaders with knowledge and wisdom. The building is
blue, the color of honor, to stress that honorable leaders
emerge from a program emphasizing intellectual progress,
educational achievement, and military learning. The sword
symbolizes the military learning acquired concurrently with
academic knowledge, and the gold color reflects the gold braid
which may adorn the cadet's uniform after he is commissioned.
The sword points skyward to show freedom, which the cadet is
prepared to defend; it also portrays the mythological Excalibur,
which could only point skyward after being freed from a rock by a
knight of extraordinary character and ability.
