If your in JROTC say what type of JROTC it is and list the organizations. Im in Army JROTC at my high school. here is a list of the organizations: Flight club regulation drill rifle team rifle club color guard honor guard orienteering team Im really interested to see how many other people are in JROTC. Also say any interesting things your unit has been up to or awards you have gotten. My unit has been an honor unit with distinction since 1971. I bet some other units can easily beat that though. And anything else you want to say about your unit thats interesting would be awesome.:)

I was in AFJROTC in High School. I was involved with Sabre Team, Drill Team and a few others that have slipped my mind.

JROTC stands for junior reserve officer training corps. Bear187, what is the sabre team? I have never heard of it before and was curious. Is it like crack drill?

Sabre team is drill team with sabres, like Rifle team is drill team w/ arms. I am in CA-841 AFJROTC, a cadet group in size We gots us: APT team(drugs are bad, mmkay?) Rifle team (drill w/arms, not shooting) Drill Team Replica team(for those too weak to hold a 10 pound rifle) Color guard Aerospace(rockets) then we have various events, like academic Challenge, B-ball, softball, etc. We have a MASSIVE amount of trophies, lots for NORCAl, TITAN, and SCIDM, we were a distinguished Unit last year, we have planty of awards, but I can't remember them... I was a C/2Lt last year, when I was Computers OIC, now I am F-Flight CC, so i'm a C/TSgt. My earned rank is only C/SSgt.

We have something similar here, FBU-Ungdom (Frivillig befälsutbildning). In English that means voluntary officertraining-youth. I've never had anything to do with them, though.

Well, JROTC stresses that it is not getting you ready for the military, it is 'building better citizens'. Howevber, if you are in it for 4 years, you go up two enlisted pay grades... It doesn't put you into the military, it just has recruiters EVERY freakin week, and teaches you how to were the uniform, and how to drill, and the phonetic alphabet, nothing that could POSSIBLY make people think abouyt the military^.^

when i was in it there was a voluntary boot camp for the summer where you got to go to to real boot camp for about a week. it was real cool because you got a real army experience so if you had an inclination to join, you where geting a realistic introduction.specially the obstacle courses and the rappelling tower. previous classes got to shoot m16 but when i went they had removed that portion due to parents "concerns" :rolleyes: and was replaced with survival training which was cool in its own rigth, they thougth us how to kill a chicken and a rabbit and how to get water out of cactus and specially usefull how to make knots. our camp was at the camp bullis military base in san antonio texas.
