Army ROTC This year Army ROTC recorded its first enrollment increase in four years, its first battalion level field training exercise, and the first time it sent two cadets to Ranger school. The battalion strength jumped by 19 men to a strength of 96, thus ending a four year decline in enrollment caused by the un- popularity of the Vietnam war. Army ROTC saw a high of 315 cadets in 1967-1968, but within three years this number would be cut by more than two thirds. The battalion reached an all-time low of 77 men last year. " You grew up in the Vietnam era, " explained Capt. Joseph Arlauskas to our reporter, " but even as late as 1967 a soldier could walk down the street and people would say ' hi ' . He ' d walk into a bar and people would buy him drinks. There was a certain popular feeling and status for the military. The Vietnam war changed all that, but now I think the pendulum Is beginning to swing back a little bit to the way it was before. " On March 31, the battalion went on its first battalion level field training exercise. Due to its reduced size, the battalion functioned as an understrengthed rifle company while in the field. Six other field training exercises were staged during the year, drawing individual ROTC cadets and midshipmen who also participated from Tulane NROTC, Loyola AROTC and Southeastern Louisiana University AROTC. This was a great in- crease in the number of actual, in-the-field learning experiences over former years. Also, helicopters were used much more extensively with these operations than in the past. Steve Gardner and Mark Wagner were the first cadets to attend Ranger school from Tulane. Five other cadets attended airborne jump school last summer, thus doubling the number of Tulane Army ROTC-jocks who have passed through that school. Chris Caton received the Award of the ROTC Medal for Heroism and for the part he played while working as an ambulance driver during the sniping rampage of Mark Essex at the downtown Howard Johnson Motor Hotel on January 7 which resulted in the deaths of eight people. Caton was shot in the back while strapping a fireman he had rescued into his ambulance. Caton has since recovered very well, and may be back in the program next year. The battalion experienced one major disappointment during the year. A cadet ' s suggestion that the battalion be provided with horses for a mounted honor guard was taken up by the Professor of Military Science, Col. William Berridge, but was turned down by 5th Army. The expense of such a project, plus the fact that the use of horses was not thought to be in keeping with a forward looking, modern image were the main reasons cited for the turn down.
