Publication Date: 9/10/2008

Luke Koehler ’09 is the new Cadet Battalion Commander of the Army ROTC program. Rhodes, in cooperation with The University of Memphis and the Departments of the Army and Air Force, participates in cross-town agreements that provide the opportunity for Rhodes students to enroll in ROTC.

“This is quite an honor and is the first time a student from Rhodes College has held this position in the program’s 26 year history,” says LTC Gregory Marinich.

Koehler is a graduate of the United States Army Air Assault School and the United States Army Parachutist School. This summer, he attended the Leadership Development and Assessment Course in Fort Lewis, WA where he earned the overall rating of “Excellent,” awarded to only 20 percent of the 5,100 cadets in attendance.
