Dear A-State ROTC Alumni:

Welcome to our Alumni Chapter site. Take a minute to review our mission statement. Still practicing our ROTC leadership and excellence objectives, we need your help. Stop by your campus office located in the LTC Frederick C. Turner, Jr. Military Science building. Reminisce in our Hall of Heroes. Or, call/text me, (870) 318-7298, or email: rhartness@yahoo.com, to discover how your help can support our future growth.
