AFJROTC- A Family Affair

posted May 18, 2015, 10:39 AM by   [ updated May 18, 2015, 10:39 AM ]

This semester there are two pairs of family members in AFJROTC. They are junior Cadet/SMSgt Lee Ann Hubbard and her brother, freshman Cadet/Airman Jonathan Hubbard. The other pair is freshman, Cadet/SSgt Justin Haire (left in photo) and his brother sophomore Cadet/TSgt Austin (right in photo). When asked if the younger sibling joined because of the older one was in the program, both cadets stated "no way". They both signed up for ROTC because of what it offers during High School such as Leadership and Teamwork opportunities as well as how it will prepare them for life after High School.

As the SASI, I watch how the older siblings treat their younger siblings and they do a great job mentoring and leading. It can be fun to watch the competition between the two sets of siblings and they compare their uniform and test scores immediately after they are posted.
