ASU Military Science Department opens new Hall of Heroes


JONESBORO – Visitors celebrated the opening of the new Hall of Heroes in the Military Science Building on the Arkansas State University campus during an officer commissioning ceremony Friday afternoon.

The Hall of Heroes has been established in new space made available in the Military Science Building after the Arkansas National Guard moved out to new quarters elsewhere in Jonesboro.

Located for years along the walls of the east entrance, the Hall of Heroes was begun in 1994 in order to recognize the extraordinary career achievements of Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) alumni since the program's beginning in 1936.

Under the leadership of Lt. Col. Cecil L. Clark, professor of military science, the department decided to use the opportunity to provide permanent recognition for achievements by the Red Wolf Battalion and its cadets.

The Hall of Heroes recognizes not only its honored alumni of the ROTC program, but also current student and Red Wolf Battalion personnel.

According to the Department of Military Science, Arkansas State pays tribute to ROTC alumni who have distinguished themselves through heroic service, government service, and outstanding representation of the university by placing them in the Hall of Heroes.

Currently the Hall honors 65 inductees who are outstanding alumni of the ROTC program.

The ASU ROTC Red Wolf Battalion hosted an open house to showcase the new Hall of Heroes.

The new facility features the Military Science Department’s honors and awards and an impressive array of plaques that have been hung in honor of each individual who has been inducted into the Hall of Heroes.
