Alumni Committee

The Fighting Irish Battalion Alumni Committee strengthens the bonds between past, present and future members of the Fighting Irish Battalion.  It is alumni led, and serves to as official representation in working with the current Professor of Military Science and the Cadets.  The Alumni Committee has several initiatives, one of which is recognition of many of the great members of the Fighting Irish Battalion.  The Committee is responsible for identifying prospective nominees and voting for their induction into the Notre Dame Army ROTC Wall of Honor.  Inductions into the Notre Dame Army ROTC Wall of Honor are made at the annual Notre Dame Army ROTC Ball, traditionally held in February or March.  Additionally, to foster camaraderie with current Cadets, the Alumni Committee organizations at least one event annually, such as a tailgate, and works details with current program cadre to ensure its success.
