U.S Army JROTC Mission

To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens!

Main Logo1.jpg

SAI Messeges

All Cadets & Leaders should be positive: Our attitude as a leader has a tremendous impact on your People. As a leader, you must always have a positive attitude and trust me -- sometime you'll have to dig pretty deep but you have to find it! Your People are depending on your attitude to shape theirs. You have to motivate, inspire, excite and ignite your subordinates. You have to make them believe in themselves, the unit, its goals, vision and mission. They have to know they can accomplish what they set out to accomplish. Your positive attitude will give your people the "can-do" attitude they need to punch above their weight class and do things they never thought they could do.
