i couldnt find a thread on this so im not sure, maybe it was posted already
i am trying to get an ROTC program in my school. I need to get all the details for my principal to even think about it. I know i will eventually need to go by the recruiters office and see which would would do it or something, we only have Army, Marines, and Navy here. But could someone please post some things i will need to do to get an ROTC program at my school? thanks alot
well not exactly. i know a number a few students who will be joining the Marines next june once we graduate so i think the USMC ROTC would work best. The only problem is there is a public school about 1 mile away who has a Marine ROTC program....im not trying to offend the Corps by this but, the school they are working at, is not exactly filled with kids who are going to join the military, those kids will most likely end up in jail and they really dont repect what they have with the ROTc program. At my school, we are not a public school, we have kids who actually want to join the military and who dont just want to be in the program because "the cammo uniform gets you mad pu**y". So we would very much appreciate what we have if we were able to get the program but i first have to try and convinve our dean to allow me to start askin recruiters about getting the program
I can relate to you wanting an ROTC program in your school since my high school doesn't have one. I have always thought a program like that would be a great way to get involved early and find out if the military is really for you.
I am kind of disappointed though about your thoughts of public schools. I go to a public school and this group of kids you talk about does not sound anything like the kind of people I know. Also, you are being really unfair to just go and generalize everyone from a public school joining an ROTC. I think a lot of them do have a level of devotion to the military and I think if they saw what you typed they would probably be pretty pissed.
I am trying to do the Marine Corp ROTC in college. I am doing it because it is something I have always wanted to do. I am not doing it for "pu**y".
No you misunderstood me. I was not criticizing public school students in general, i was speaking about the public school kids where i live. Its pretty sad actaully. The kids here are all really trashy and have no morals or pride. That little quote i posted was actually the response from someone who belonged to that highschool's ROTc program. He said "Nah bro im not goin military, F*** that, these cammies get mad pu**y"...ya great morals right there. But i could go on all day about the kids in my area but im niot going to sit here like you are my shrink, but pretty much i think my school, even tho its loaded with rich white kids who 99% of them dont have the balls to go mil, we still would have people involved in the ROTC program for good reasons
if there is a JROTC program a mile away you are not gonna get one at your school. It is really difficult for the military to fill the slots for the instructors, (even retired ones) for these positions. And, the fact that they have the program at a school that seems to be kind of seedy makes sense. The simple fact is that JROTC programs tend to be at schools where there is a large amount of low income students as these kids are actually the MOST likely to join contrary to what you say.

oh i see now...thats a pretty good strat if you are dealing with good people. Im really not just trying to bash the people here, but this is the truth, if i get deployed to war once i join the Marine Corps, and i have someone from my area in my platoon, i wouldnt trust them for a second. Because lets just say when fit hits the shan, they care about themself, not others.
i have also been interested in starting the rotc at my school. We currently have around 300 students but we plan to expand by 80-100 students per year. There is another school that has an rotc about 5 or more miles away. what do you think are the chances that we can get a program started at my school.
