JROTC cadets were recently honored by the Mobile’s Midtown Optimist Club during their first annual Armed Forces Recognition Day. This recognition proves how hard cadets in JROTC work. Throughout first semester, cadets honored surviving members of the Tuskegee Airmen, World War II Buffalo Soldiers, and Medal of Honor Recipients. During the semester, they competed in drill meet competitions, air rifle competitions, orienteering demonstrations, and the annual Raider Challenge. There are many skills developed by participating in JROTC and NROTC.
