Duke Basketball Star to be Sworn into U.S. Army

The Duke Chronicle reports that “Duke center Marshall Plumlee will commit to donning a new uniform Friday—that of the red, white and blue.”  

“Plumlee, a student in Duke’s ROTC program, will take part in a contracting ceremony before Duke’s practice Friday afternoon, which will effectively serve as his swearing-in to the U.S. Army, effective upon graduation.”  

“David Behm, recruiting and operations officer for the Duke Department of Military Science, said the ceremony acts as a written agreement on the part of the student to accept a commission upon graduation.”
