Our goal is to re-enforce the values that are important for mental and physical development in our youth. We teach Cadets the values that are common in the way we live our lives. These values are from the Seven Army Values: LDRSHIP; Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless-Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage.
Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the community, school, your family, JROTC unit and other cadets
Put the welfare of the nation, your unit, and your subordinates before your own.
Face fear, danger, or adversity [physical or moral].
Fulfill your obligations.
Live up to all the values.
Treat people as they should be treated. The Golden Rule!
Do what’s right, legally and morally.
We also provide our cadets the opportunity to lead other cadets, and learn the importance of diversity. Cadets who are confident, focused and determined to excel are more active in classroom instruction, and their grades will improve in other classes. The Army Instructors encourage all cadets to attend a post-secondary school; rather it’s a four year university or vocational school. Contrary to belief we DO NOT promote or encourage Cadets to join the military services. We are prohibited from doing this in accordance with our regulatory guidance.
If a cadet is interested in military service we will arrange a meeting with their selected service recruiter. The recruiter will contact the Cadet and their parents to arrange an interview. The Army Instructors at Dothan High School are committed to helping all of our cadets to be successful in life regardless of the path they take after high school.
