More About GWHS JROTC
The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is one of the largest character development and citizenship programs for youth in the world. The National Defense Act of 1916 established organized JROTC programs at public and private educational institutions. In 1964, Congress expanded the program to all military services and changed from active duty to shared support from the services and schools. As congressionally mandated by Title 10 United States Code, Section 2031, each military service must have a JROTC program to "instill in students in United States secondary educational institutions the values of citizenship, service to the United States, and personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment." JROTC’s mission, "To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens", is the guide post for the program’s success.

WARRIORS DRILL TEAMS
"Aces High Til' We Die"
Our battalion offers drill teams focused on prioritizing the principles of teamwork, dedication, coordination, and especially discipline.
Our Armed Drill Team specializes in sequences and performances based around parade rifles. Equipped with either demilitarized or drill purpose rifles, our Aces High Armed Drill team is a force to be reckoned with. Our cadets, with the assistance of alumni with drill experience, work together to add more accomplishments to the long running streak of feats from various drill competitions all around the nation as they represent not only George Washington High School, but as well as our island of Guam.
"One Team, One Sound, Aces High, Til' We Die!"

JROTC Cadets start at the LET I level (Leadership, Education, and Training, Level One) and progress to the LET IV level. Attached below is direct links to the LET Service Textbooks for each level. Please check them out, if you're interested in what is taught in JROTC classes or download and use if you are a JROTC Cadet who has fallen behind on an assignment and needs catching up. Everything from flag folding to first aid can be referenced in the textbooks given.
The most recent event our battalion participated in was the Cadet Challenge. The purpose of the event was to evaluate the physical capabilities of our cadets through multiple strenuous physical training exercises.
