Pershing Rifles Unit Search Project

Since 1925 when Ohio State University joined the University of Nebraska to become the second unit in the Society, Pershing Rifles has been a national organization with a presence in hundreds of colleges and universities across the United States.

Over the last 85 plus years, Pershing Rifles has expanded and contracted and seen numerous changes in unit designations and Regimental boundaries.

The Pershing Rifles Group is working diligently to record all current and former Pershing Rifles units. As part of this effort it is using Wikipedia’s Pershing Rifles page as a means by which current and former members can update information on Pershing Rifles companies, regiments and brigades.

If you know of a P/R unit that is not on the Wikipedia page, please take the time to add it.

  1. I heard there was no record of it with you now, but Furman University in Greenville, SC had a P/R unit in the late 1960’s and early 70’s. I joined in 1969 and served as Captain when I transferred away in 1972. I think it’s strongest years were 1969-1971 (the anti-Viet Nam war sentiment showed in our diminishing numbers). My memory is fading, but I believe we were Company S-4.
