Each year, the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) units at Yale showcase the skills their students have learned throughout the year, award prizes to exceptional students, and honor the graduating seniors. Yale's Naval ROTC and Air Force ROTC — which includes cadets from nearby universities — have grown to train dozens of cadets and midshipmen since the programs returned to campus in fall 2012.
