Professional Sports a New Path for Service Academy and ROTC Grads

Jul 28, 2019 by

Katie Begley – President Trump recently signed a Presidential Memorandum authorizing military service academy and Reserve Officer Training Corps graduates to participate in professional sports after graduation.

The new policy, the details and implementation of which are still in development by the secretary of defense’s office, will make it possible for extremely competitive athletes to pursue a career in professional sports.

“Highly talented cadets and midshipmen who receive the extraordinary benefits of an education from an Academy or through a ROTC program at taxpayer expense should be able to both take advantage of the short window of time during which playing professional sports is realistically possible, while also honoring the commitment they have made to our Armed Forces and our country,” said a statement released by President Trump’s office. “This new policy will make that possible.”
