JROTC Introductory Camp

The JROTC Introductory Camp at LHS from 8:30 am until 12:00 pm daily on July 29th thru 2 August. JROTC’s mission is to “Motivate young people to be better citizens”, and there is no military obligation for being in this program. We emphasize the seven Army values:

LOYALTY

DUTY

RESPECT

SELFLESS SERVICE

HONOR

INTEGRITY

PERSONAL COURAGE

We encourage all young people at LHS to stop by and visit with cadets during Introductory Camp. Our JROTC instructors will work with each student that would like to sign up to be in the program. All LHS students are welcome to join.

The Cadet Service Uniform is not a uniform of the military service, but we teach young people to dress like a professional. You can earn awards that tell of your accomplishments.

Coming to camp? Wear athletic clothing and bring water. Please watch here for the RSVP Form here during this upcoming week. If you would like to sign up early while open slots are available, please email us at jameswatkins@misdmail.org or seanjohnson@misdmail.org .

Color Guard Honors Vietnam Vets

The Bronco Color Guard honored the 1st Cavalry Division 2-8 Infantry “Sky Warriors” (Air Assault) Saturday. The soldiers and their families told many interesting stories and celebrated their 50th Anniversary. The unit rembered eight Sky Warriors that have passed this year. We were in great company of heroes that served the American nation and made tremendous sacrifices.

Thank each of you for your commitment to freedom, both in the jungles of Vietnam and elsewhere around the globe before and even since 1970. Our country is grateful. ‘We will never forget’.

About JROTC at Legacy

Legacy JROTC is a co-curricular elective that meets the SB5 endorsement for Public Service. It is also designed to support MISD’s Vision 20/20 Third Guiding Statement.  JROTC develops confidence, academic rigor, and teamwork by using the Seven Army Values – “Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage” in all our lessons and labs. JROTC is a kid-led organization, and its growth and success are contingent upon cadet involvement in all processes. Our class usually teaches Physical Fitness, Drill, Technology, and Uniform Appearance weekly. The cadets with passing grades are regularly in competition against other schools at scheduled drill meets. Legacy always brings home hardware after a drill meet, and we have been nationally ranked at drill performance two years in a row. Uniforms are issued free of charge for all cadets. Only the competing cadets are issued PT uniforms to wear at drill meets. Each cadet is expected do their best at all things. Each cadet has unique opportunities to earn rank, responsibility and awards. We have the following teams – CyberPatriot computer cybersecurity, Raider rescue, Drill Team (armed and unarmed), Male/Female Color Guard, Academics, LEAD online challenges, and Male/Female Physical Training. Come visit us in EK103!
