Message from the Commanding Officer

Colonel Gil Juarez

Thank you for your interest in the Trojan Battalion. As part of the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps Unit Los Angeles Consortium (partnering with the other school across town), the Trojan Battalion is made up of some of the finest young Americans that our country has to offer. Our goal is to further develop our Midshipmen mentally, morally, and physically, instilling in them the highest ideals of duty and loyalty along with the Naval core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment. Upon graduation our Midshipmen are commissioned as Marine Second Lieutenants or Navy Ensigns, and go on to lead America’s Marines and Sailors around the world. After their time in the service is up, whether that is five years or 30 years down the road, our NROTC alumni return to society as solid, contributing citizens who continue to serve their communities and their nation in civilian leadership roles.
