FOREWORD

 The NC-071 Air Force JROTC program was established at Seventy-First High School by an agreement between the Cumberland County School District and the United States Air Force in 1972. The Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI) and the Aerospace Science Instructor (ASI) are both retired Air Force personnel with over 45 years of combined Air Force experience. These instructors have an extensive background in leadership, management, and teaching. 

 The students who enroll in Air Force Junior ROTC are referred to as Cadets. The entire group of cadets is referred to as a Group. The Cadet Group is owned, managed, and operated by Cadet Officers and Cadet Non-commissioned Officers. Using this cadet organization structure allows cadets to learn leadership skills through direct activities.  

 The cadet guide contains policy, guidance, requirements, and rules of conduct for AFJROTC cadets. Each cadet will study this handbook and be held responsible for knowing its contents. The guide describes cadet operations, cadet rank and chain of command, job descriptions, procedures for promotions, awards, grooming standards, and uniform wear. It supplements AFJROTC and Air Force directives. This guide establishes the standards that ensure the entire Cadet Group works together towards common goals and will earn pride in unit achievements.  

 We believe most cadets will voluntarily work for the betterment of the Group if they are aware of the goals and mission of the unit. You, as a Cadet, are responsible for obtaining a thorough understanding of the contents of this cadet guide. Only then can you maximize your experience and participation in the AFJROTC program and apply these standards to the benefit of yourself and NC-071. We wish each of you great success in your academic and JROTC endeavors. 

INTRODUCTION

This document provides cadets with a better sense of what is expected of a student in the Air Force JROTC program by answering some of the most commonly asked questions. The cadets who follow these guidelines will greatly increase their opportunity for success. This guide will answer questions pertaining to: classroom rules, promotion merit and demerit system, military customs and courtesies, the Air Force Chain of Command, promotion eligibility, the Air Force Song and the Pledge of Allegiance. Each individual cadet in the NC-071 program is expected to know the mission of Air Force JROTC, the Chain of Command, the National Anthem, and the Pledge of Allegiance. By following the AFJROTC Mission and other rules in this handout, cadets will be successful individually and contribute to the success of NC-071.
