Army JROTC. You could really try and stretch it to include the ACA, American Cadet Corps, but no part of the ACA is funded by that certian branch of the military.

I don't see how a Cadet Organization is a para-military group, although in sea cadets we have trainings that are completely combat oriented.

Over here we have:

ATC (Air Training Corps) - the only one you need to know 8)

ACF (Army Cadet Force)

SCC (Sea Cadet Corps)

and

CCF (Combined Cadet Force) - this is a program with all three sections, army airforce and navy, usually found at boarding schools, or places where there isnt enough interest for a unique force / corps to start up.

Why the word Para, this indicates that they are airborne, which they are obviously not

When used as it is for the term, Paramilitary, para is a prefix that means similar to or resembling. Or in this case, "Resembling the Military"

Parachute, comes from the latin cadere or, "To fall" corrupted into the French chute. Parachute and literally means, "Resembling fall" in English.
