Hello to all! Long time no post I know, I have a new topic though. I am in the Army JROTC, I am going on to being a Let III Cadet (Year Three Cadet). After attending JCLC this summer I learned from A Major their who just so happend was a Yankee reenactor was once an Airborne Ranger. He told us that when he was in JROTC things were alot different and I was just wondering if anyone had any stories from their time in JROTC. I was a graduateing member of Camp Pine Hill, New Jersey JCLC class of 2009. Also any ROTC or even Military stories are welcome. I like hearing stories from people who have done all of this.

I commissioned through Army ROTC at James Madision Univserity in 2005.  I think my favorite ROTC story involved a field problem at Warrior Forge 2004 (LDAC, Camp, BOLC 2 I'm not sure what they call it now).  In any case, we were on a squad level movement to contact mission at Fort Lewis, WA and were engaged by one sniper.  The squad leader completely lost it and proceeded to hide behind a log.  The only instructions we could get out of him for the next twenty minutes was him screaming "Broken Arrow, Broken Arrow!!"  I guess he had been watching a little too much of We Were Soldiers.  By the time the O/C finally ended the excerise, that sniper killed all but two of us while the squad leader hid behind a log and cried.  Hopefully he never got commissioned...  Cheers!
