"God, Country, Notre Dame"

Author: CPT Vonderheide

Army ROTC is proud to support the Shamrock Series events in San Antonio, Texas over Veteran's Day Weekend 2017.  The theme for the event is "God, Country, Notre Dame."  This motto originally recognizing the more than 2,200 Notre Dame men who fought in, of which 46 died, during the First World War.  This sacrifice is memorialized on the East Door to the Basilica.  As the University of Notre Dame has transformed, the motto has held stalwart, and today serves as the motto for the Fighting Irish Battalion.  It is a poignant reminder for the men and women commissioning into the Army to their committment to live and serve ethically and dedicated to service to the nation.
