"Learn to lead. Choose to succeed."

The Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps seeks to instill in participating U.S. high school students the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment. NJROTC cadets stand out among their peers as ethical, confident, physically fit, academically dedicated young men and women. NJROTC seeks to instill a strong foundation of citizenship in America's future leaders. NJROTC is not a recruiting program, but a citizenship program. Schools that have NJROTC programs benefit from the program's stellar reputation and the cadets' community service.


Navy Band

"Pride in Service" has been the theme for Navy Band Great Lakes. From 1911, when the first bugler reported for duty, to bandmaster John Philip Sousa in 1917, to today's bandmaster, our music represents the pride and professionalism that is synonymous with the United States Navy. Serving Commander, Naval Service Training Command's mission of transforming volunteers into 21st century Sea Warriors, Navy Band Great Lakes performs ceremonies to honor recruits, Sailors, and their families. As the Navy's "Ambassadors to the Midwest," Navy Band Great Lakes performs for hundreds of thousands of people every year, providing musical support for community relations and Navy Recruiting in a ten-state area of responsibility stretching from Ohio to North Dakota.
