They had a meeting and talked about it to see if it was a good idea or at least a try and guess what I go the position. We went to our first completion and we were all nervous. After I reported in to the man we stated our routine with this being our first I didn’t expect perfect but I wanted to at least have a good score. Let’s just say we didn’t do so well. Every year they have an awards banquet at the end of the school year to award the new staff, special positon, and awards. My 9th-11th grade year I have been awarded color guard captain, Alpha platoon sergeant, Alpha platoon commander, unarmed exhibition captain. I enjoyed my positions and jobs. My senior year had to be the best though I got supply officer and officer of the year award.

Every year High schools all across the nation with a JROTC program or a Physical Fitness Team have to submit score to region/national Physical competitions in San Diego
