First post-9/11 NROTC class to hold reunion before Navy game

August 02, 2012

Alumni of the Penn State Navy ROTC class of 2002 will hold a reunion during the weekend of the Sept. 15 Penn State vs. Navy football game. The class of 2002 was the first class to graduate following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001; alumni from this class graduated into a situation in which deployment was inevitable. Many found themselves in combat situations in Iraq and Afghanistan within a year of graduation. Participants will gather to share in fellowship and swap sea stories from their time as Navy and Marine Corps officers over the past 10 years.

This will not be a uniformed event. For more information, contact Capt. Karl Larson at
