What does it mean to be a Pershing Rifleman?

Commitment #4

The Pershing Rifleman is one of the few, the proud, to have their eyes on the stars and their feet firmly planted on the ground. For over a century, members of the National Society of Pershing Rifles have been part of a long tradition of excellence in “Leadership” in all facets of industry–including military, government, technology & academics.

“[James Earl] Jones was an exceptional cadet, a member of the Pershing Rifles Drill Team and the National Society of Scabbard and Blade. The same performance ability that let him excel with the Pershing Rifles led him to the Michigan’s School of Music, Theatre & Dance…after a lifetime of success, he still remembers his time in the Pershing Rifles as some of the best years of his life.
