Northern High JROTC

Welcome to the Northern High School “Husky Battalion” Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Home page. We are located in Accident, Maryland.

Our Battalion is very active. We have an award winning Raider Challenge Team and Drill Competition Team. We have just started a Marksmanship Team and our JLAB Academic and Leadership Teams perform higher each year we compete. We routinely perform a variety of community and school activities for the communities located in our area. We are also active with the local American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in the area. Our cadets will participate in approximately 30 – 40 events every school year. Each year our cadets take a “Staff Ride” to the Civil War battlefield of Gettysburg, attend an annual JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge each summer, and take an overnight field trip to Quantico Marine Corps Base. New this upcoming year the cadet leadership will conduct a Leadership Academy that will provide advanced leadership training for potential cadet officers and senior Non-Commissioned Officers, leadership training for current cadets seeking promotion to basic Non-Commissioned Officer ranks and basic leadership training for our incoming LET 1 cadets. The mission of Army Junior ROTC is to motivate young people to become better citizens. We turn regular everyday students into cadets that are confident goal-oriented outstanding leaders with the skills, experience, and knowledge to tackles life’s many challenges. For most cadets who participate in this program their life becomes richer and stronger. Cadets become more focused on academics and their future. Grades have also been shown to improve in other subject areas. Career and educational options become available through JROTC. All graduate with purpose, clear objectives and goals. We are serious about the business of learning, following, leading, and becoming more informed. We understand that our actions and words result in logical consequence. We are positive about ourselves and others, and we look for the lessons hiding in each of life’s experiences… a way of life not for the weak-hearted or thin-skinned. We keep in mind that people and the world around us will respond on our contributions and actions. The “Husky Battalion” JROTC program has two instructors. LTC (ret) Jack C Riley is the senior army instructor and works primarily with the Marksmanship Team and the JLAB Academic and Leadership Teams. SGM (ret) Melvin L Hoffman is the assistant army instructor and works with the Drill Team and Raider Challenge Team. Both instructors are retired from the army. Together, the two instructors bring forth over 20 years of educational experience working with the youth of our nation and over 60 years of military experiences. Enroll today, the train is rolling, and the ticket to ride is an open mind, a positive attitude, and the willingness to learn! Contact any JROTC cadet or instructor to learn how.

Mission: The mission of Army Junior ROTC is to motivate young people to become better citizens.

Motivating young people to be college and career-ready citizens- NHS JROTC

Cadets enjoy the obstacle course when the weather allows it. Have you noticed it in the woods at the school??

JTF1 will be bringing the fun on 3/28/20 to our CASH BASH!! Do you have your tickets yet for the CASH BASH??

Northern High JROTC's cover photo

We hear there is a party happening soon 😁 Come join us for the afternoon! Age 18 and under tickets can be purchased at the door. Need a ticket?? Let us know.

Did you know that the JROTC has an obstacle course??
That is right- they do- and the Cadets LOVE getting to use it.

This is why the NHS JROTC Boosters have fundraisers- to help offset the cost of things for our cadets. This is why we reach out to you and possibly your business for help at times.

We realize everyone gets bombarded with fundraisers and many of us had or have cadets in school, so we are in the same boat with you.

However, sometimes we lean in more towards certain fundraisers or organizations because of our own personal experience in life. We, the Booster Board, understand if our fundraisers are not one you lean towards.

But we sure like sharing them with you ;)

In a world full of all kinds of distractions we have young men and women who love to get up and complete these activities.

Even if you were a former cadet or parent of a cadet, you helped us get to this point and we sincerely, THANK YOU. ~NHS JROTC Booster Board Members

[02/26/20]   History:

The Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps came into being with the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916.

The focus of JROTC was on secondary schools and was part of a national commitment by the Department of Defense to give back to the civilian community by supporting public education.

Under the provisions of the 1916 act, high schools were authorized the loan of federal military equipment and the assignment of active or retired military personnel as instructors on the condition that they followed a prescribed course of training and maintained a minimum enrollment of 100 students over 14 years of age.

Have you seen our Cadets in any parade around the county?

We would love to hear from you.
