You'll get out of the program, what you put into it.

Even if you don't go into the military, the lessons you learn are priceless.
 
Pursue excellence.
 
You'll make friends that will last a lifetime. 
 
Do what you love and have fun.
 
  Learning to overcome challenges is a skill you must learn.
 
Participation in AFJROTC helps when applying for jobs in the future.
 
Wear your uniform with pride.
 
Focus on getting good grades and participate in after-school activities.
 
Commit to each other and yourself.

AFJROTC was the best thing I did in high school.
 
Go for it.  

AFJROTC lays down structures you'll need for jobs and later on in life.
 
Work hard and don't let procrastination keep you from your potential.
 
It's so much more than a class.

Stay in the program and live what you learn.
