Following the fall of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Block communist nations, and with the new threat to the American way of life, Army ROTC began to refocus its leadership training in order to prepare Cadets for the new challenges in today's modern Army. The modern Cadet is expected to be highly proficient as a scholar, athlete and community leader. Today's Cadet not only must understand, but live the Army Values and the Warrior Ethos. These are the foundations on which Gonzaga University Army ROTC trains tomorrow's U.S. Army leaders today.
