It is my desire to become a member of Kappa Lambda Chi Military Fraternity, Inc., to once again have the brotherhood and comradery that I was able to experience while in the Army. Promoting the values, lesson and knowledge I attained during my military service as wells as those set forth in Kappa Lambda Chi’s mission, is something I encourage when mentoring children on daily basis in my job as a school resource officer. My current position allows me to interact with people from all walks of life, providing me with an avenue to inspire those around me. Becoming a member of Kappa Lambda Chi enables me to further my personal knowledge, while being another avenue for me to impart wisdom, promote fidelity and encourage high ambition to today’s youth

Over 32 schools watching your every single movement. Over 200 people watching whether or not you make a mistake and 5 judges grading you on precision and even creativity in some aspects. I would experience this almost every month during competition, but not until my 10th grade year. Right before high school my friend Oscar had convinced me to join JROTC and since I was planning on joining the service I thought it would be a good idea. The class had many after school teams such as rifle team, drill, and raiders. I hadn 't joined any of the teams and because of that I was looked down upon by upperclassmen and others who had joined those teams. In the period I was in, almost every freshman would grow up to be great leaders for our school and for the JROTC program. As for me I could care less and decided only on passing my classes and didn 't care about being active in my school and for that I hadn 't made much friends in the JROTC program almost like an outcast, but that also went for any other kid
1. The two worst causes of World War II were the invasions on China and the Nazi 's political takeover in Germany.
Then deciding my classes for high school I knew I would be participating in the JROTC program. One of the first things I was drawn to was the uniform, which symbolizes honor, duty, loyalty, responsibility and high expectations. But only when I started to wear that uniform did I begin to understand the ROTC’s rich history, the many ways it builds character and community in the present, and it 's exciting goals for the future.
The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is a program that was designed to teach high school students citizenship values, personal responsibility, and leadership all while using a military structure to teach students teamwork and self discipline. JROTC prepares the future of our nation to be a law abiding citizens in society. With the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916, JROTC was born. Today, in the 21st century, JROTC differs from 100 years ago. Without a doubt, JROTC will change in the 22nd century to adapt to social norms like today.
I am Cadet Captain Mejia and I have been in JROTC my whole high school career (4 years). It has been a crazy 4 years, from being cadet of the month my freshmen year to being color guard commander my senior year. JROTC has been a roller coaster for me, I loved JROTC my freshmen year. I did everything my first year in JROTC, I was in color guard, drill team, unarmed drill team, and raiders team! I did almost all color guard performances.

Noncommissioned Officer 2020 is the Army's vision for developing the leaders of tomorrow thru a deliberate, continuous, and progressive process. This process is the key to the future of the NCO of 2020 and beyond.

The
I would like to become an active member of Carrboro High School’s National Honor Society in order to benefit my community through service. I am immensely committed to serving and improving my community, as I have made distinctly clear with my 143 service hours. Through these service hours, I have focused on the improvement of the future community by helping disenfranchised refugee children coming from horrible living conditions in Western Africa, by teaching children about biology, chemistry, and scientific history, by preparing freshmen for their high school careers, by raising money to protect and aid voiceless animals hurt in car crashes and other human infringements, and by creating rain gardens, planting food crops, and decreasing Carrboro High School’s environmental
The second principle, joint enterprise, is the common goal that participants work toward. Eckert and McConnell-Ginet (1998:490) write, “the community of practice takes us away from the community defined by a location or by a population. Instead, it focuses on a community defined by social engagement.” In Nolan’s case, the unifying goal is passing through the four levels of the ROTC program. Upon graduation, ROTC students have a military career ready and waiting for
I have experienced many situations and endured a multitude of experiences throughout my life. It is through these experiences that I have been able to learn a great deal about myself. Since I was young, I have always set astronomically high goals and expectations for myself. This was largely in part due to the strong upbringing from my parents, who taught me what is right and wrong, and instilled very strong personal values, along with a continued ideal of community service. These values helped forge me into who I am today. Besides family values, my background begins when I first joined the Boy Scouts of America. There I was taught what it means to adhere to a motto and properly wear a uniform. Although this was the simplest form of a uniform,
Valley Forge Military Academy is basically a rehabilitation camp for those who believe the rules of their parents or the law don’t abide by them. With its name comes the very definition of what it is, a Military Academy. Valley Forge has ranks in their units just as normal military system would, especially for their lesser ranks. The lowest of the Academy is called a plebe. According to Valley Forge plebes are lower than nothing. “We are the same now. We are nothing. In fact, we were less than nothing.”(pg 91). Plebes were constantly made up of those who either were delinquents or those who are just starting to turn bad. They were treated with disrespect, the same way and possibly even harsher than they treated others before. Valley Forge
