Uniform Wear

posted Aug 4, 2015, 6:19 PM by dmcquown@gips.org   [ updated Jan 10, 2021, 6:23 PM by Hien Nguyen ]

Yes, cadets are required to wear their service uniform once a week once they are fitted and issued to the cadet.  Our uniform wear day is posted in the weekly Operations Order (OPORD). Our normal uniform wear day is Tuesday or Wednesday (A/B class schedule).  If a student fails to wear the uniform on the assigned uniform day then they normally can make up on Thursday (with a grade deduction).    A student that fails to wear the uniform three times during a semester or fails three uniform inspections may be disenrolled from the program.  Generally, cadets do very well with wearing the uniform and most have no issues.  

Weekly Assignments

Cadets & Parents, each week (normally by end of day on Thursday) Lt Col Nguyen and MSgt Evans upload the Operations Order (OPORD) to CANVAS ("Announcement" section).  The OPORD outlines every assignment and tasking for the week to include uniform days, make-up uniform days, and fitness days.  The OPORD is very detailed and is a simple tool that is critical to the cadets success. We maintain the data on the web site for a full semester so cadets and parents can access historical information.  Along with the OPORD, we also post the learning targets for each lesson, chapter reading, assignments (questions), etc.  

Cadet Volunteering for Service Projects

We use an unbiased process to select cadets to participate in community service events.  First, we determine how many cadets we need then we evenly divide the opportunities into all eight flights.  Within a flight, we use a lottery system to select participants.  The key to participation is...volunteer for all events, thus enhancing your chances of being selected.  Community service events are not mandatory.  Cadets need to learn how to manage their time to ensure family and academics are taken care of first then comes AFJROTC events/activities like Color Guard details, community service, monthly Cadet Corps activity nights, and more.

Thank you for viewing the AFJROTC web page.  This page was designed to be helpful for parents and students.  Please check our calendar on a weekly basis as our events are periodically updated to either refine the time or to add new events. 

I also want to to welcome you to Air Force JROTC.  The AFJROTC program is grounded in the Air Force core values of "Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence In All We Do."  The mission of AFJROTC is to "develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community."  AFJROTC is not an USAF accessions program and cadets are never under any obligation to join the military.  AFJROTC is a Title 10 US Code mandated citizenship training program that is designed to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill personal responsibility, character, fitness awareness, and self-discipline.  The program achieves this through classroom education in air and space fundamentals and hands on learning opportunities in fun and challenging extra-curricular activities.
