Serving God and Country:
The Eagle Battalion at Liberty University

"ALSO I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD, SAYING, WHOM SHALL I SEND, AND WHO WILL GOD FOR US? THEN SAID I, HERE AM I; SEND ME."   ISAIAH 6:8

Founded in cooperation with Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1979, the Liberty University Eagle Battalion began with five cadets and two cadre members. After disbanding in 1984, the Eagle Battalion was reestablished in 2001 as a partnership school with University of Virginia’s Cavalier Battalion based out of Charlottesville, Virginia. In 2013 Liberty University's Eagle Battalion and UVA's Cavalier Battalion were both renamed Task Force Blue Ridge to signify the unity of the two schools' ROTC programs.

Today’s Task Force Blue Ridge cadets experience a combination of daily active duty along with a Christ-centered college education, which results in a well-rounded social and military experience.

Many cadets receive Army ROTC scholarships, Army National Guard Tuition Assistance, Liberty scholarships and/or are soldiers in the Virginia Army National Guard or Army Reserve. 

Task Force Blue Ridge continues to grow numerically and competitively.  Cadet graduates from the Task Force Blue Ridge currently serve in various branches of the U.S. Army across the globe while fulfilling Liberty’s founding mission of serving Christ among the nations.
