Agreed. Our senior instructor was from Special Forces. The kids in the battalion at my high school were as diverse as the rest of the student body. Those in command of the battalion were among the school's top students, academically speaking.

It was a fun program and I enjoyed it. There's no commitment to join up after you graduate, but if you do enlist you'll begin Basic Training a couple of grades higher than the other recruits. There are also four-year, full-ride scholarships available to colleges and universities with an ROTC battalion and four years in JROTC is the fast track to getting one.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
