One Antithesis To A San Francisco Attitude

Whereas the pinkos people of San Francisco have no use for the same military that ensures their freedom to verbally trash the government express their political opinions freely to the point of disallowing anyone from the U.S. Armed Forces to address students in their high schools, other schools, three thousand miles away, welcome our military.

High School ROTC programs in Maryland are enjoying strong enrollment numbers, according to a Washington Times report, nationwide programs having doubled in the last five years.

SNOW HILL, Md. (AP) -- More students at Eastern Shore high schools are joining the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps, part of a national rise in popularity that has some high schools reporting up to a fourth are enrolled in the program. JROTC programs numbered 3,184 last year nationwide, up from 1,493 in 1990. Last year, more than 500,000 students in the United States were JROTC cadets.

From Lt. Col. Ron Harrington, USMC (Ret), at Snow Hill High School on Eastern Shores and Capt. Warren Harris, Army, at Crisfield High School,

Col. Harrington called the JROTC program a positive experience for the students, who are not required to join the military as adults. "What I like to say is that we don't teach the Marine Corps, we teach Marine Corps values,"{emphasis mine} he told the Salisbury Daily Times. On the Eastern Shore, schools from Wicomico High School to Crisfield High School all have programs in place with solid followings. Capt. Warren Harris, an instructor for Crisfield's Army JROTC program, said about 70 students usually sign up for classes each year. "Last year we had about 78 students enrolled, and being a small school, that makes about 20 [percent] to 25 percent of the school's population," he said.

This is a good sign, in my opinion, that despite efforts by the left to indoctrinate public school students to despise their country and its military, much of our youth is demonstrating through action that their own feelings are those of patriotic Americans wherein the anti-American dogmas of the liberal are of little or no import.

It's too bad that the majority of San Francisco parents and teachers choose to raise and indoctrinate the next generation of Murthas, Deans, Kerrys, Durbins, Pelosis, Teddy Ks and other left wing elements to continue their work of undermining the United States and all that America stands for, and to form the next wave of the liberal assault on our country's ability to defend itself.

Hehe...these are good signs and I bet the liberals who are pushing to have this end are up in arms over it!

The ACLU will probably start suing the schools for infringing on the rights of pacifists by forcing their children to have to see other children engaging in "paramilitary" activities.

I invite you to see these proud JROTC cadets, in the Atlanta Veterans Day Parade this past November.

Great pics, my friend.

I went through your blog(s) and enjoyed them both, including your link to that fun BBQ blog. Wish I hadn't missed that one while it was "live".

I'll be back, and during my next update, you will be blogrolled here.

Thanks for visiting.
