Do you think retired soldiers should teach jrotc? info
we really didnt do much.. he just sat in his little office all period on the computer.. (reason why im not taking AFJROTC next year) he promised us ALOT OF things but we didnt get anything.. we just sat in class and discussed how we can " improve our corps".. also he promotes people on their academic grade, one of them who got an award asked me what TSGT stood for... I was like... ....
The reason I joined that class is becuz i had interest in the military but that class makes military look bad... I feel like I wasted 2 years being a part of that..
maybe it would be better if it was thought by active duty.. like senior rotc?

JROTC and SROTC are a lot different. SROTC is taught by mostly active duty folks.
The ciriculum is also difference. The retired soldiers have a lot to offer, and like active duty, you aren't going to like them all.

AND... you can learn something from ALL of them even if you don't like them.

And just because you didn't care for that officer or the way that program was structured or implemented, you shouldn't feel that all retired officers or all JROTC programs are the same. Ask around, maybe you can find another more suitable program. Maybe you'd like a CAP program better?
Oh BTW, most retired officers and enlisted personnel that I know of do care, a great deal.
I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which in truth, they are.

The SMI moved here from New Mexico with his family of 5 to take over the old SMI's position...Theyre there at 715 every morning until usually 5 at night...

I'm in AFJROTC also (obviously) and my unit's SASI and ASI are both retired AF. They both care about the cadets almost more then their own kids, and I've learned so much from them. They are the reason that I plan to join the AF when I graduate. So it just might be that perticular person. Don't think that all retired soliders are like that just because of one or two. That sounds kinda like I'm being rude or something but I don't mean it to. If you really love it (as I do) and plan to have a military carrer...you shouldn't let one person ruin that for you.
