SEOUL, South Korea — A group of South Korean army ROTC cadets departed Tuesday to hone their skills at a monthlong leadership development course at Texas A&M University.

The university in College Station, Texas, has been hosting students from the allied nation annually in the program since 2014 and boasts one of the best Reserve Officer Training Corps programs in the nation.

The 40 cadets will gain a global perspective and training in day-to-day skills such as roll call, physical training and overcoming obstacles as well as tactics and operation orders.
