  • Jrotc

    I am vey interests in joining some type of military program while in high school. My school doesn't have a jrtoc program but a neighboring... Specialty school? Central Campus, in a city -des moines- next to mine has One. What does jrotc do? And if I am involved in cross country, wrestling, tennis and working at a grocery store, will uneven have time for it?

    If your school doesn't have one you are probably out of luck. Unless your school has some sort of arrangement where they send their own people to jrotc at another school, which I doubt they do.

      JROTC is a great program and can also provide you with the opportunity to enlist at a higher pay grade if you decide to further your career in the National Guard when you graduate. I suggest that you go and talk to your school counselor and find out what your options are with JROTC. You can also talk to them about potentially starting a new JROTC in your school.

          Hate to direct you to other websites, but these are the public sites of JRROTC, the Civil Air Patrol of the USAF, the Navy Sea Cadets and the Young Marines. The last 3 are not tied to the public high school, although those services do have Jr. ROTC counterparts at some schools.

            I went through AFJROTC in High School. If you complete the four years, you get a certificate of completion that will allow you to enlist as an E-3 in the Army, Navy, or Air Force. It allows you to enlist as an E-2 in the Marines. As for activities, staying after school was a regular occurence. Our unit practiced drill and ceremonies, P.T., and team building exercises. We had Color Guard, Drill Teams, Recruiting activities, undertook reveille and retreat for the flags in the front of our school, and went to all football games together as a Group. You'll learn branch specific history and culture, general orders, rank and insignia, and very general military science. All in all, I loved it and suggest it for anyone even mildly interested.
