SMI Board Military Support Corps of Cadet Honour Code Class System
Corps of Cadet

The SMI Corps of Cadets will be organized according to the traditional "Triangle" Regiment. Therefore, the "Corps" will be equivalent to an infantry regiment consisting of three (3) battalions, each battalion consisting of three (3) companies. In turn, each cadet company will consist of three (3) platoons and each platoon will consist of three (3) squads of 11 men. The cadet ranks will follow the traditional cadet ranks of the former VMI and The Citadel Corps of Cadets.

The total strength of the cadet regiment is computed as follows:

1 platoon = 1 2LT + 1 PLT SGT + 3 CPLs + 30 Privates and Lance Cpls = 35
1 company = 1 CPT (CO) + 1 LT (XO) + 1st SGT + 1 Guidon + 3 Platoons (105) = 109
1 battalion = 1 CPT (BN CDR) + 4 Staff (S1-S4) + 3 companies (327) = 332
Regimental Band = 1 CPT (CO) + 1 LT (XO) +  77 Cadet Musicians = 79
Cadet Regiment = 1 CPT + 5 Staff (S1-S5) + 3 Battalions (996) + Reg. Band (52) = 1081

Therefore, the SMI Corps of Cadets is expected to have a total strength of approximately 1000 to 1100 cadets.
