What is ROTC all about?

Dear Parents/Guardians, 


            Welcome to the Air Force Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFJROTC) WA-952 website!  Your daughter/son is joining a first-class instructional program with dedicated and experienced instructors who will go the extra mile for each cadet, and to provide an exceptional learning environment that is safe, educational, fun, challenging, all with one aim: ‘to develop better citizens for America.’
