I understand the ROTC program is going to be discontinued.
This is a tragedy. The program helped and saved a lot of students who would have otherwise involved themselves in less than positive activites. The program and it's leadership gave me desperately needed positive guidance at at time when I most needed it. It also helped me to develop leadership skills and a work ethic that assisted me through out my entire life. I am so GREATFULL for the ROTC program, SFC Overleesh, and MSGT Muncy.
This program builds leaders and saves lives. Discontinuing is a diservice both the students who benefit from the program and this great nation some will will ultimately serve.

Greetings,

  That is hard to swollow, especially some of us who were Cub Scout, Boy Scout and then ROTC, before going into the military.

With them many trip that went to Camp Pendleton and Ft. Mc Author over the years, it gave many the opportunity to start forming their future before graduating from high school.

JR ROTC gave many of us an edge before going into the active military. With the training, we did not go into basic training as dummies, but traininees who knew something about the military. For me, after moving to Pomona from Hollywood, was not an obsticle for me to continue something that I really loved. I thank God that I graduated in 1973 and was able to go to Ft. Polk Lousiana for basic training and on. That enlistment (National Guard at first) took me to 1991.

Men, do what you can do to get a young man under your wing and teach him something that will keep him on the straight and narrow. If his vision is the military, help get him some exposure. These kids dream can't die just because a program dies! Let's do this

PS: My daughter was in the ROTC and then one of her sons and her daughter was. Now my grandson is in the Army reserves and just reenlisted and will ETS in 2023!
