Großadmiral Dönitzno offense but why would you want to be in anything like this? couldnt you just wait to join the army later? I personally things this (american) thing encourage joining the ar,y , fighting for your country, no questions asked, thus in the end glorifying dying for it. I personally dont like this thing at all fo that reason, too militiary for me, the boyscouts is as far as i went(or would go of i run a country). Are this things in anyway linked to the goverment/militairy? i asume so but for all i know they are just totally independant organisations.

I wouldn't expect any Europeans to like this sort of thing. No offense, but you guys are more anti-military and probably wouldn't understand. So you know I'm not just picking on Europeans, a lot of Americans don't like the program either, and only about 170 people of my school of 3500 are in JROTC.

Only about one out of ten people in my school's JROTC actually go into the military. So, obviously it's not a recruitment fool as such. Many of the kids who join JROTC have already decided to go into the service before they join.

Yes, JROTC is linked to the government. The government pays for most of the equiptment, inspects the units and makes sure that everything runs ok.

Anyways, watch one of those black watch videos I posted a link to.

I used to be in it, but then the reg. started changing. They no longer allowed rapelling or shooting, etc. I got tired of the changes and also got tired of all the hair-cutting that was required.

i was in army jrotc back in the day (93-95) i got in it just so i would not have to go to gym , which had no A/C in my school. i made it to cadet staff sargeant. i was platoon sargeant . my platoon leader was a girl who measured 5'4", i measured 5'11" so w looked really goofy on parade.

In reply to Großadmiral Dönitz, a lot of people who want to be in the army join JROTC because then you begin in the army as an officer and not a private.

That's incorrect. If you join ROTC, not JROTC, then you will enter the army as a 2nd Lieutenant.
