Welcome to the website of A Company, 12th Regiment of the National Society of Pershing Rifles. A-12 is one of the few tactical Pershing Rifles companies operating in the nation. Our mission is to provide motivated candidates with an environment that will allow them to excel in ROTC, academics, and leadership. We accomplish this through both Candidate Term and our subsequent A-12 Member Training Program.

Candidate Term is designed to challenge you physically, emotionally, and intellectually, and it is hard to express in words. However, our alumni have submitted some alumni testimonials, in which they eloquently describe many of their experiences during Candidate Term.

A-12 Pershing Rifles is open to determined and motivated cadets and midshipmen in the Army, Air Force, and Navy/Marine Corps ROTC programs at Boston University and surrounding schools. We also consider civilians. By virtue of having accessed our site, we assume that you have an interest in the challenge that is Pershing Rifles Candidate term, so I encourage you to continue to explore our website and to contact us if you have any questions.

Very Respectfully,
Joseph Bruno-Metzger
National Society of Pershing Rifles
