The Ram Battalion is organized to resemble a regular Army battalion, with a cadet commander and operations staff. The cadets themselves are responsible for planning and completing a wide variety of program activities. Senior cadets are the officers of the battalion, juniors and sophomores are the noncommissioned officers, and the freshmen form the core of the platoons.
