Candidate Term is generally open to Army and Air Force cadets, and Navy and Marine midshipmen in the Charles River Battalion and Liberty Battalion ROTC programs. Cadets and midshipmen from nearby colleges and universities, and local civilians, are considered on a case-by-case basis.

We have tried to make this website as comprehensive as possible, but unfortunately there is too much pertinent and time-sensitive information to list online. Thus, if you are even vaguely interested in joining B-12, we invite you to complete the survey below so we can know a little about you and send you information regarding upcoming Candidate Terms and pre-Candidate Term training events. Also, please email the commander to introduce yourself; the email address is listed on the B-12 Members page.

There is no obligation, so even if you are not sure that Pershing Rifles is for you, please drop us a line so that we can answer your questions and send you more information. Please be aware that if you attempt to contact B-12 members during the summer, you may have to wait a while for a response, due to summer ROTC training.
