He said he read it before school this morning..he teaches 4-7th grade English now, he taught JROTC in several locations..

I read the story about JROTC…I think it’s hilarious…I love when people get their stuff in a bunch over an elective…do people really think the program is a recruiting tool?

I made a comment to NYT, have the NYT follow an instructor around all day…don’t just pick and choose a couple of whiners and make that a story. What about the graduation rate percentages of those in the program? I agree it’s a hit piece…

edit..Dad ww2, 2 brothers Viet Nam..
