Marine Corps Junior Reserve (JROTC)
The Marine JROTC curriculum covers diverse areas to include: marksmanship, physical fitness, land navigation/mountaineering, public speaking, military history, customs and courtesy, leadership, first aid, close order drill, drug and alcohol awareness, current events, "real world" social skills, team work and problem solving techniques. This program is not combat oriented, nor is it a recruiting activity. The objective is to teach young adults to become informed and responsible citizens, develop leadership skills, strengthen character and promote an understanding of the basic elements and requirements of national security. Additional objectives are to help students develop self-discipline, confidence and integrity. As funding is available, the unit travels to the West coast so that cadets can receive "first hand" knowledge of selected active U. S. Marine Corps units and their mission. Physical fitness through running, exercise etc. is required weekly. Uniforms will be issued and are the required wear on weekly inspection days. One full year of JROTC 1-2 counts for 1 semester of P.E. and 1 semester of Health.
