The Cadet Creed
  •  I am a Navy Junior ROTC Cadet.

  •  I proudly embrace the Navy’s core values of honor, courage and commitment.

Welcome to the Area Five Internet site.  Area Five encompasses the Mid-Atlantic Region (VA,MD, and DC)...


Fair Winds and Following Seas to Capt Gumpright who did a superb job over the past five years as Area 5 Manager and who has left Area 5 in great condition.  I am proud to have taken over the reins from Capt Gumpright and I especially look forward to visiting the 57 High Schools associated with Area 5. 

Needless to say the NJROTC program that we all endorse and support, is designed as a secondary school citizenship and leadership program, that teaches self-discipline, self-confidence and leaderships skills to help our Cadets successfully meet life's challenges.  Never lose sight of this.

Secondly, in order for Area 5 to remain the best Area in NJROTC, we need to ensure that we communicate therefore, as discussed at In-Service, my motto is (1) to be Pro-Active within your Units, (2) to keep lines of Communication with me, your school and our other Units open, and lastly (3) to keep me informed.

I wish you all good luck and remember to "encourage, mentor and influence" your Cadets!

Captain, USN (Ret) Jim Daniels
