Army   

JROTC

began   

in   

1916.

the    

Army

over    

1700

nationwide.

JROTC's  

mission  

is  

to  

motivate  

young  

people  

to  

be  

better  

citizens.

The    

program    

does    

this

preparing    

them    

for    

responsible

leadership  

roles  

in  

society  

while  

making  

them  

aware  

of  

their  

rights,

responsibilities,    

and    

privileges    

as    

American    

citizens.

skills;

familiarize   

you

the   

history   

of   

our   

country   

and   

its

Army;  

and  

develop  

a  

deeper  

understanding  

of  

America's  

national

heritage.   

We   

will   

work   

together   

with   

the   

other   

programs   

and

courses  

in  

the  

school

long  

course,
