Why Did I Enroll In JROTC
I enrolled in JROTC mostly because of my family. My dad was in the US Air Force and retired shortly after I was born, my oldest brother joined the US Navy about 2-3 years ago and my sister joined the early entry program for the US Navy and is going to boot camp in July, my brother was practically born to join the US Marines, and 3 of my 4 brothers have been or are in JROTC. It was only natural and the sane thing to do that I joined JROTC because we are practically a Military oriented family and I wouldn’t want it anyother way. I also thought it would be good for me because since this my first year in High School and that it would help me prioritize my work, help me find new friends, build my self-esteem, and learn how to become like my brothers. In my opinion my brothers are the very definition of leaders. Now that it is the end of the semester, my reasons of joining were proved right. I have become better at being a leader, I have made a bunch of friends, i’m more comfortable in the way I live my life and the things I do, and I know how to keep my grades up in High School, and even if I don’t I know how to try and keep them up. I love JROTC and there is no doubt in my mind that I will come back next year.
