The Association of the United States Army is a private, non-profit advocacy group for the U. S. Army. Its membership is open to everyone, not just Army personnel, and membership is not mandatory for soldiers.

ROTC, or Reserve Officers' Training Corps, is a college-based program for training commissioned officers of the United States Armed Forces. ROTC officers serve in all branches of the military, including the U.S. Marine Corps and the U. S. Coast Guard. The ROTC grew out of the Morrill Act of 1862 which established the land-grant colleges. As part of this act, the federal government required that these colleges include military tactics as part of their curriculum.
