From the desk of Commander Bradshaw:

On February 12th of 2022, Franklin Heights Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps Unit conducted their annual inspection. Unfortunately, this years inspection was conducted virtually.

This year the NJROTC inspection was conducted by the Area Three Manager, Commander Matt Jordan out of Great Lakes Naval Station. Every two years the NJROTC unit is inspected by the Area Three Manager. This inspection is more thorough and more important than the "offsite" inspection which occurs every other year.

The event involved a brief by the top staff as well as a thorough inspection of all records and inventory. The inspection evaluates a Cadet's knowledge as well as their appearance in uniform. Attention to detail and military bearing are a key part of a Cadet's success during this event.

Normally, the next phase of the inspection involves the presentation of the color guard, followed by a drill team demonstration. The finale involves the entire company conducting a "Pass in Review".

The 2022 inspection was a resounding success as Franklin Heights JROTC unit passed with flying colors!
