The marching, flag-raising and single-file roll calls are the same as they were decades ago. But a rebirth of the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program has swollen the ranks with high school cadets on a decidedly nonmilitary mission. Over the last few years, Orange County's two JROTC programs have increased to 14 programs with 1,558 cadets, and the former bastion of adolescent males is now about one-third female--many of whom are taking command. "It's an explosion," said Col. James H.

The marching, flag-raising and single-file roll calls are the same as they were decades ago. But a rebirth of the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps--and new approaches to teaching the program--have swelled the ranks of high school students signing up to be cadets. In Los Angeles' public schools, the number of participants has shot up by more than 40% since 1992, according to the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Thank you for printing George Grider's opinion piece about the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) in our schools. It should be noted that, in addition to the $638,557 in educational funds that San Diego Unified is spending on military training this year, the district also subsidizes the following school site facilities for JROTC: 10 classrooms, 10 offices, eight supply rooms, seven weapons storage rooms with intrusion detection devices and...

The principals of Newport-Mesa Unified School District's four high schools are considering applying to have junior ROTC on campus. "We have a lot of students who are interested in outside organizations and I think it would be a good opportunity for them to explore," said Estancia Principal Peggy Anatol. "It offers a lot of discipline." The four principals attended a meeting with a junior Reserve Officer Training Corps instructor to discuss the program.

I would like to respond to the recent comments made by the "critical thinkers" regarding the new junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program at Culver City High School (Westside, June 1). Have any of the people so critical of junior ROTC talked with the students and teachers at local high schools? I doubt it. In September, Leuzinger High School began its Army junior ROTC program under the direction of Sgt. Fred Jacobs. This class has had a greater impact on more students (over 200)

A grass-roots group in Culver City plans to continue its fight against a naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps that started at Culver City High School in September. Called the Culver City Community Network, the group will sponsor a forum on JROTC at the Veterans Memorial Building in Culver City at 7 tonight. Hugo Rasmussen, a World War II veteran who is a member of the Veterans for Peace group, will speak about the current role of the military.

The Glendale school board Tuesday unanimously approved an application to initiate a Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps at Hoover High School. The application for the four-year program will be forwarded to the Navy, which will review the school's scholastic performance and facilities. Hoover officials said they hope classes can begin by the fall of 1986, although the school must be placed on a waiting list.

The expected $30 million in program and salary cuts for the San Diego city schools became official Monday as the district passed a $586-million budget for the 1992-93 school year to meet a Sept. 1 deadline. With the Legislature still arguing over a final state budget, city schools Supt. Tom Payzant told trustees that he doesn't know whether the local cuts will be too little, too much or just right to meet the amount of funding that will be coming to the district.

I recently attended a Culver City school board meeting where the issue of bringing the junior Reserve Officer Training Corps to Culver City High School was on the agenda (Westside, April 20). I was shocked by the lack of information the board had on this program, including any that set out the flaws of the program. I was also appalled by their refusal to listen to audience comments. Certain board members basically railroaded this program through without any input from the community.
