A group of nine Lobos —UNC Navy ROTC Navy Ensigns and Marine Corps Second Lieutenants — were commissioned into service to protect our nation and defend freedom.
“This is the 75th class of Navy and Marine Corps officers commissioned through The University of New Mexico’s Naval ROTC Unit, since it was established in 1941,” said CAPT. Michael B. Riley, commanding officer of the UNM NROTC Unit. “For over 78 years we have trained, educated, and commissioned line officers for service with the Fleet and Fleet Marine Forces. This is the fifth group that I’ve personally commissioned.”
