  Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) is a program sponsored by the United States Armed Forces in high schools across the United States that "instills in students in United States secondary educational institutions the value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.
In the Army JROTC program (for example), the cadet unit at each school is directed by at least one retired commissioned officer (in the grade of Second Lieutenant through Colonel) or a warrant officer (WO1 through CW5) and at least one retired noncommissioned officer (in the grade of Sergeant First Class through Sergeant Major).
Retired general or flag officers are generally not permitted to work as JROTC instructors, nor are retired Reserve and National Guard personnel.
