Annual Military Inspection - Tuesday, 28 February 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 I hope everyone is enjoying their mid-winter break!

I wanted to take a moment and make everyone aware that our NJROTC program will be conducting its Annual Military Inspection on Tuesday, 28 February 2017.  Our Navy boss, Captain Wenceslao, the Area 13 Manager, will arrive early in the morning and will inspect all facets of the program throughout the day.

 A major portion of the inspection is his uniform inspection of each Cadet.  Every single Cadet will be inspected by Captain Wenceslao to assess their understanding of uniform regulations and to see how much general military knowledge they have learned this year.  Participation in this inspection is a graded event and will make up a significant portion of your Cadet's second semester grade.  Any Cadet who is not in uniform or who fails to show up for their inspection at the appropriate time will receive a zero.  

 As such, it is vitally important that ALL Cadets come to school next Tuesday in a fresh uniform ready for the inspection.  This includes:

 Washed and ironed black pants and khaki shirt

Khaki shirt with NJROTC Bar and appropriate rank placed correctly on their respective collars

Name tag and ribbons correctly placed on the Khaki shirt

Polished shoes

White T-shirt

Black socks

A fresh haircut and shave (males) - Hair pulled back and up (females)​

Garrison hat with fouled anchor correctly positioned

Any Cadet who receives a 100% will be awarded the Exemplary Appearance ribbon and overall platoon grades will be considered when determining Honor Platoon at the end of the year.

 Your assistance in ensuring your Cadet is ready for this inspection is greatly appreciated.

Because this inspection falls on Tuesday, Wednesday, 01 March will NOT be a uniform day.

 If you have any questions, please email me at this address.

Thank you for all you do to support the NJRTOC program,

John Deehr
