DETROIT (WJBK) - The U.S. Army teamed up with a group of 100 Black Men to help some Detroit students get ready for college and some successful careers.
They hosted some ROTC students from Cass Tech High School at Wayne State University for a half day of college orientation. It is part of the annual college tour exposing young people to the opportunities available in and out of uniform.
"The military is more than just mud, guns and tanks," said Kevin Claxton, the president of 100 Black Men of Greater Detroit. "You can be an engineer, you can be a doctor, you can be a legal professional. There are more opportunities available now within the military.”
The U.S. Army offers more than 150 career training programs to service members that could also lead to even better jobs as civilians.
