Members of the Corps have served in every armed conflict fought by the United States since 1876, and over 225 have served as Generals or Flag Officers . Many members participate in ROTC programs and earn commissions in the United States Armed Forces upon graduation.  As of fall 2012, the Corps is composed of forty-six units formed under three Air Force Wings, three Army Brigades, three Navy and Marine Regiments, as well as the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band, whose members may be affiliated with any military branch.  Among its notable units is Parson's Mounted Cavalry, the only mounted ROTC unit in the United States.  The Ross Volunteer Company, the oldest student-run organization in the state, is the official honor guard for the Governor of Texas .   The Fish Drill Team, a precision, close-order rifle drill team composed entirely of Corps freshmen, represents the Corps and A&M in local and national competitions. They have won the national championship almost every year since their creation in 1946, and have appeared in several Hollywood productions with prominent roles in the movies A Few Good Men and Courage Under Fire .
