He's not hurting any of you and from what you said he's contributing to the program. So he can't PT and probably won't join the military. But he probably enjoys the program and would resent being forced out. Does his being in the program hurt you? Or do you want him out simply due to spite?

We've got a lot of guys here at RMC who I know can't do any PT, but they're still in leadership roles. So what if they can't run? If they've got the potential as a leader for other things, let them go for it. Telling someone to get out of the program simply because they can't do a few pushups or run a mile isn't exactly grounds for anything...especially since it's only a Cadet Program. If this was the actual Military, then I'd be bit concerned.

I just wonder sometimes why these guys even join the cadet programs. Seriously, there is a kid in my class that sounds like this and more. He doesnt wear the uniform correctly, doesnt dress out on PT days, and hardly ever does drill moves right. Not only that but he never ever turns in a homework assignment. Why join the programs if you know you're not going to do it right?

Well....if there's people like that, I say get rid of them. More than likely, they're only there because their parents told them to go. That's how it was for a lot of Cadets in my old Squadron.

There's nothing wrong with someone who at least tries to get stuff done, but the minute they start to slack off and just don't give a , that's when you start with the release forms.

That works. Here at RMC, we usually give the slackers extra drill, PT, duty, inspections, etc...

Sadly, many people know their way around the system (most of them are barmen...go figure), and don't get nailed for slacking.

See my program is school oriented, so Im not allowed to get rid of em. All I can do is give em as many demerits as I can. But thats about it,I am not allowed to give work duty, extra PT or anything. Its a bunch of bull

unfortunately, we just switched principals and the current one doesnt think that AFJROTC is very important. She took out the Marine Corps ROTC and the Navy ROTC as well. She isnt very respected within the military community in all of our city, but you gotta suck it up i guess... Anyway, the thing thats sad is that i am a Cadet Chief Master Sergeant and I have equal or lesser authority than a common Airman.
