“I have appreciated this program and all that you have done for my son. This school year I have seen him grow into a responsible young man. He has made a complete turnaround academically and I truly believe it is because of JROTC and the relationships that he has made with his peers and his JROTC instructors. You all have given him the guidance and direction that he has needed to push him forward and for that, I am forever grateful.”
