This is important. Do not send anything demeaning, or offensive to JROTC, the United States government, or anyone else. I respect opinion as long as it is expressed in a moderate and responsible way. Nothing with profanity will be tolerated. If you break this rule, I will find you! It isn't very hard.

I would like to thank the following people that had nothing to do with this page, but inspired me while I was part of the JROTC program: Lieutenant Colonel James M. McCartt, US Army (ret), Director of Army Instruction, Memphis City Schools; Lieutenant Colonel James M. Danley, US Army (ret), Senior Army Instructor, White Station High School; Sergeant Major Herbet Grimes, US Army (ret), Military Instructor, White Station High School; Major Robert C. Youst, US Marine Corps (ret), Naval Instructor, Brewster High School; and C/MAJ Lesley Tschume, C/COL Johnny Feng, C/LTC Mark Pfaffenroth, C/MAJ Jessica Lane, C/MAJ Christy Morton, C/MAJ Kristin Gregory, C/LTC Jonathan Howse, and C/LTC Jessica Cox (if any of you see this and your ending rank was wrong, e-mail me). As well as my sister, former C/LT Carla C. Keirns who's participation in NJROTC at Brewster High School in Brewster, New York, taught me to love this program.

My name is Katherine Keirns, and I am currently a History Major at Mississippi University for Women. I was a member of White Station High School's Spartan Battalion, Memphis, Tennessee. While in the program I was Memphis City Schools Corps G-5 (Public Affairs Officer). I left the JROTC program when I graduated in 1997, and went on to attend the oldest state supported college for women in the country, which is actually coed, but that is another story.
