This article in the New York Times today is well written.
One statement about the J.R.O.T.C. in schools was very telling.
"The Army says 44 percent of all soldiers who entered its ranks in recent years came from a school that offered J.R.O.T.C."
Some of the schools mentioned have MANDATORY J.R.O.T.C. classes. Mandatory. Shameful.
Here is a link to the article.
