JROTC: What is it like?
CODEPINK — who knew THEY were still around? — is demanding the end to the JROTC program in schools, all in the name of saving children from gun violence.
Yeah. That makes total sense. Not.
During the slaughter at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, several of the Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets acted heroically to save the lives of their classmates.
Three of them, Cadets Peter Wang (15), Alaina Petty (14) and Martin Duque (13), were gunned down during their rescue efforts and were accorded various military honors when they were laid to rest.
Push back against CODEPINK has been strong, particularly from parents whose children have benefited from JROTC programs.
