Both my brothers Brandon and Zach and myself were in our high school's JROTC program. Zach did quite well from 9th grade to 12th in JROTC. I didn't take it my final year as I was fed up on how unethical (for high school) cadet leadership could be. Zach was not innocent of how mean and terrible the upper cadets could be, but he sure got a lot of awards. I was never happy for him because of that, but looking at this over a decade later I did realize how proud my mother was of him.
