Instructor: Junior ROTC Not About Military Recruiting
He says the course content is military science, with a focus on aviation.
“It covers a wide gamut of science. We talk physics, physical science, a little chemistry, physiology and meteorology. Just basically think flight school, and that’s what we talk about.”
Colonel Zachary, who retired from the Air Force after 23 years, says students also learn valuable study skills that will help them in college. He says all Junior ROTC Instructors in Pennsylvania have state teacher certification, just like math and history teachers, and he works for the North Penn School District, not the U.S. Air Force.
