JOHN M. MOREHEAD HIGH SCHOOL ARMY JROTC HISTORY
Why is JROTC important to me?
John M. Morehead High School Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) came into being on July 1, 1975 under General Order #17 signed by Fred C. Weyand, General, U.S. Army, Chief of Staff. On November 22, 1977 the JROTC program at John M. Morehead High School expanded to a four-year program at the request of W.C. Pressley, Superintendent of Eden City Schools.
Since that date in 1977, the John M. Morehead High School JROTC Program has received the Honor Unit with Distinction Award. This award is given annually to those units that have demonstrated exceptional performance in all areas of program performance. To receive such ratings is a reflection on both the unit and the school.
The JROTC Program has changed greatly over the years. Once looked upon primarily as a source of enlisted recruits and officer candidates, it became a citizenship program devoted to the moral, physical and educational uplift of American youth. Although the program retained its military structure and the resultant ability to infuse in its student cadets a sense of discipline and order, it shed most of its early military content.
The study of ethics, citizenship, communications, leadership, life skills and other subjects designed to prepare young men and woman to take their place in adult society, evolved as the core of the program. More recently, an improved student centered curriculum focusing on character building and civic responsibility is being presented in every JROTC classroom.
JROTC is a continuing success story. From a modest beginning of 6 units in 1916, JROTC has expanded to 1555 schools today and to every state in the nation and American schools overseas. Cadet enrollment has grown to 273,000 cadets with 3,900 professional instructors in the classrooms. Comprised solely of active duty Army retirees, the JROTC instructors serve as mentors developing the outstanding young citizens of our country.
The reason it's important to is that I wanna go into the Marines even though it's Army. I always dreamed to go into one military branch. I will enlist in the summer 2017. After my five years here, I can't think of doing anything else. I love absolutely everything about it. If it was here at RECHS, I would take it every semester. That's just basically why it's important.
ARMY JROTC HISTORY
The United States Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) came into being with the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916. Under the provisions of the Act, high schools were authorized the loan of federal military equipment and the assignment of active duty military personnel as instructors. There was a condition that the instructors follow a prescribed course of training and maintain a minimum enrollment of 100 students over the age of 14 years who were US citizens. In 1964, the Vitalization Act opened JROTC up to the other services and replaced most of the active duty instructors with retirees who worked for and were cost shared by the schools.
Title 10 of the U.S. Code declares that "the purpose of Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps is to instill in students in United States secondary educational institutions the value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment."
Battalion of 2012-2013
A Drill Team is marching unit that performs routines based on military drill. Military drill teams perform either armed or unarmed.
The Raider Team practices physical and technical skills at both the individual and team levels. They perform tasks that may be found in a conventional Army unit such as the Physical Fitness Test, 5Km Runs, Rope Bridges, Land Navigation Courses, First Aid Litter Carry, Cross Country Rescue, Orienteering, 5km Foot March, and those are some things that they do.
The Color Guard/Honor Guard represents the cadet corps and Morehead High School at many formations, reviews, parades, athletic, and official events throughout the year. All cadets are eligible to volunteer for the color guard but they have to know or should have don't it before.
They do have a Rifle team but they just started this year so I don't have a picture.
COLOR GUARD AND HONOR GUARD
Their names are first sergeant Bray and Chrapliwy. They don't go by Mister because of their rank you have to call them by their rank. If you don't then they don't have problem if you just meet them but they go by thier rank.
State Trooper School
State Trooper school is where maybe only two or three. Cadets who out stand the most and have the best conduct. They have to be juniors to be able to go. It's a tough place but the American Legion. Are the ones who pay for the trip all the way to Raleigh. Which is two weeks and it's a great experience, it's about $200 to go. The American Legion has to approve for them to go this camp. It's not like they write a letter that explain why they want to go. No, they have to go to the office of the American Legion. Stand up in front of them and say why they wanna go. Then and there the American Legion tells them if they go or not.
JCLC is camp for two weeks, you pay twenty dollars, it's hard to do. Some basics that you know but you do learn a lot of new things. As you can see you have to wear ACU everyday. With a canteen full of water you drink, which you drink about a whole canteen of water each hour. In this picture they are doing bridge rope warm ups.
This is last year's drill meet at Basset, VA we won three trophies. We do............................
JV and Varsity Squad Armed and Unarmed
JV and Varsity Platoon Armed and unarmed
JV and Varsity Color Guard
That's what we did at this drill meet but for other meets. It might be different we have about two each year. The Raider team has meets so does Rifle team.
Military Ball is like prom but just for JROTC only but they can invite whoever. The bad part is that the person that you invited. They will call the school that they go to if they don't go to Morehead. They will ask about their conduct and I think grades too. Same if you go to Morehead too. The reason they do this is because they wanna be sure that the person that you bring. Will not cause trouble or break a fight out. So far nothing has happened but they do have a like a queen and king. Excepted they are called Mr. and Ms. ROTC. They don't have to be a couple to be it. It's formal guys wear the uniforms and girls a dress.

Middle: A beret it's for both for men and women, there is no difference.
JROTC are always helping out like can food drive, giving gifts in Christmas time. It's a great program because no only you think of maybe joining. A branch of the military but they help out the community. Which I think it's a great thing about JROTC, it shows and teach to give back.They go to arbor bridge to make the elderly enjoy the season. Also by going to central elementary to read to the little 1st graders and help them out with reading. Other thing that they do is the Veteran parade and Christmas parade.
McMicheal High School and Rockingham High School have Air force.
Riedsville High School have Marines
