The Troop Leading Procedures are 8 steps, which take place by the command to prepare his or her soldiers for the mission being given. These steps will better prepare the element for its mission. These steps are best explained in FM 3-21.8 starting on 1-29 of the Infantry Rifle Platoon and Squad handbook. The steps discussed in this FM and this essay are as follows; Receive the mission, Issue a warning order (WARNO), Make a tentative plan, Initiate movement, Conduct Reconnaissance, Complete the plan, Issue the Order, Supervise and Assess. In a real life situation, time is of the essence and there will be little available to go over each step in depth. Steps 1 and 2 will be given clearly and efficiently, while steps 3-8 will seem to merge together, because these can be done at the same time. Step 1: Receiving the mission could come in the form of multiple different orders; a WARNO or warning order, an OPORD or operations order, or a FRAGO or fragmentary order. After receiving the mission, the leaders give a confirmation brief to other higher command to ensure they understand higher commanders intent, the role that their own squad or group plays, and overall concept of the operation. This is important so that the leader giving the combat order can clarify any misconceptions or misunderstandings before it is given to the rest of the group. After clarifying any misunderstandings, the command performs an initial assessment of the situation using the principles of METT-TC. This acronym represents a quick summary of what it is that will need to be done in order to accomplish this mission. The M stands for the mission; the intent and concept of the 1 up 2 up rule and purpose. 1 up 2 up represents the higher command purpose and tasks or the big picture. The E represents the enemy; their general situation, disposition, composition, and capabilities. The first T stands for…...

...ROTC Application Essay I could not say that I have always aspired to become an Army Officer. However, once I joined the ranks of the enlisted, it quickly became clear to me the path I needed to pursue. Initially, I had joined the Army with the intent of completing my four-year contract and then promptly using my Montgomery GI Bill to earn my higher education. From the moment I arrived at my first duty station, I have attempted to excel in every challenge bestowed upon me by my superiors. From physical fitness to numerous tasks within and outside the realm of my Military Occupation Specialty (MOS), I never failed to exceed standards and expectations. Thus, I was moved to loftier positions and given additional responsibilities. Being enlisted in the Army now for three years and seeing what I have been able to accomplish in that time, I know that I am capable of overcoming even greater challenges. In continuously striving to better myself as an individual, the Army has been critical in helping me grow as both a team member and as a leader. In my experience thus far, I find myself always looking up to the commissioned officers I encounter. The standards to which they hold themselves, the level of confidence and trust they inspire in their subordinates, the physical standards they adhere to, and the manner in which they carry themselves, firmly reinforces the title and image they hold as leaders of today's finest men and women. Being encouraged and supported by many of......

...BrewerProfessor Stuart English 102 | [Junior rotc] | | Growing up I was never the person to be interested in joining the military. I actually frowned upon the idea. In my junior year of high school I was enrolled in the JROTC program. I didn’t last two week in the program before I had my mother come and withdraw me from the program and enroll me in P.E. At the time I didn’t know what ROTC and the benefits the program had to offer. As I have gotten older I have found out that there are many benefits for the students who are in the JROTC program. There is more than one branch of the JROTC. It has just as many branches as the United States Military. If I had had some prior knowledge on JROTC when I was in high school I may have giving it a chance. Junior ROTC is a part of a federal program that is sponsored by the United States Armed Forces. Junior ROTC is located within High Schools across America. Many students who enroll in the JROTC are more likely to enlist in part of the United States Military. The Reserve Officers Training Corps also known as ROTC began in 1916 on the campus of Yale University. Hundreds of thousands of cadets have trained there since then. Approximately 70,000 ROTC cadets train at over 300 campuses (Wissing 39). The latest branch was opened in 2011 when the secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus joined with Yale President Richard Levin to re-establish the ROTC on its campus. It had been 40 years since the last ROTC class graduated from Yale. Yale......

...ROTC The ROTC (Reserve Officer’s Training Corps) program has some great opportunities for college students who are trying to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree. They learn basic military training and officer training. Once a cadet graduates and obtains their Bachelor’s degree and still participating in the ROTC program you then get commissioned and become an officer in the United States Army. During a cadets senior year before they commission they have to fill out a paper that has the 16 branches they can choose from to be in once they graduate. The cadets fill it out in order of preference and pick whether they want to go into Active Duty (AD), Army National Guard (ARNG) or United States Army Reserve (USAR). Then the cadets get put into a pool with all the other senior cadets and get ranked by the OML (Order of Merit List). This list ranks you from 1 all the way to the last cadet. The accession process has some problems within the selecting portion. With this complicated process there are some areas where it has room for improvements. The ROTC accession “branching” process could be improved by adding merit to the GRFD (Guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty) program, take into account the cadet’s past experiences, academic major and the university attended. The ROTC program and branching process can be very complicated if not accurately described. Not just anyone can join the program. They have to meet a set of requirements before joining the ROTC program. A cadet has to be a U.S.......

...These are some principles that can be applied in Reserve Officer Training Corps or popularly known as ROTC. As the general public may view it, ROTC is basically, a course taken because it is required in the curriculum and not because it’s an interesting program. If ROTC had not been a required course, and CWTS in the PLM chapter can accommodates all freshmen students, I guess there would only be a handful of students who will enroll in ROTC. Why wake up as early as seven in the morning and miss your Sunday family-get-together in exchange for this? Why suffer the exposure of the intense heat of the sun? Why wear the bulky fatigue uniform with all its accessories? Why feel intimidated by officials around you who are ready to command at any time? Why even follow their orders at all, and even their method of punishment? And even of all the colors, a black cover for a tickler? There are many puzzling questions as to why and how these things are done, and, why and how some things happen. But as part of being human, we constantly search for answers, hoping that if we find the answers we are looking for, we can justify what we do. Just as students try to unveil the principle behind every training day in the ROTC course. Behind every suffering that a cadet undergoes are actually, if not development, enrichment of values. These include obedience, camaraderie, commitment, excellence, service and self-discipline. First is obedience to those who are in command, most especially to the......

...and NCO candidate schools, usually held immediately following the end of the school year. There are other extracurricular activities that the JROTC's programs provide for their cadets, including trips to military installations, ROTC college programs, and other sites that give the cadets a look at the military community. Successful completion of the program (usually 2–4 years of classes) can lead to advanced rank upon enlistment in the Armed Forces. For example, upon completion of 3 years of Air Force JROTC, cadets may at their instructor's discretion enlist in the Air Force at the rank of Airman First Class (E-3). However, JROTC participation incurs no obligation to join the military. Aside from the normal benefits of a good high school course, there are some very real benefits for those who wish to take advantage of them. JROTC instructors have been very success in helping those students who are interested in college scholarships worth Service Academy appointments. A limited number of scholarships or seeking up to $50,000 each and Service Academy appointments worth up to $2000,000 are awarded to qualified high school students annually. Many colleges give advanced standing and credit for completion of the JROTC program to students who enroll in college ROTC. Those students who decide to enter active military service after graduation may receive advanced promotions for having successfully completed two or more years of JROTC. The Army JROTC curriculum includes such topics as......

...Candidate School, two (2) are Advance ROTC and POTC graduates while six (6) have completed the Basic Military Training School and the rest are purely civilians without any military trainings or orientation whatsoever prior to their entry at PAFOCS. Evaluating the Program of Instruction formulated by PAFOCS, it appears that 40% or equivalent to three (3) months of the training is allotted for military indoctrination, and the rest is for leadership and professionalism. With a 15-month training period, this number could have been decreased and used for other essential military trainings that were not anymore included in the POI but are equally important such as Disaster Response and Military Intelligence, if the Officer Candidates (as what they are called) have already undergone Basic ROTC where military indoctrination is the emphasis. 4. 2LT BEE-JAY T MIGUEL, former Acting Head, Department of Military Training and now the Assistant Head revealed that it is easier to train Officer Trainees (POTC Students) who are all graduates of Basic and Advance ROTC that the former who have no previous military experiences. 5.

The government may call upon the people to defend the state, and in fulfillment thereof, all citizens may be required under conditions provided by law, to render personal military or civil service" (italics supplied). This is the same principle that created and sustained the Reserve Officers Training Corps. The primary objective of the NSTP law is to promote the role of the youth in nation-building. As such, it aims to encourage the youth to become civic and/or military leaders and volunteers whom could be called upon by the nation in cases their services are needed. Compared with the ROTC which specializes in military training, and the E-ROTC which granted three options for students yet was limited in implementation, the NSTP law ensured that the three components - Civic Welfare Service, Literacy Training Service, and Reserve Officers Training Corps - will be given the same and equal implementation in educational institutions. Moreover, it defined the different components, the duration of the training, coverage, etc. The Three NSTP Components The National Service Training Program is composed of three different components.

It was in 1862, ROTC was first established in the united states as a college elective focusing on military training and discipline. Many countries that were connected with the united states followed the same program, including the republic of the Philippines. It was back in 2001, under the Philippine Republic Act No. 9163, ROTC was incorporated into the National Service Training Program to allow the students to choose what training they want for civil service other than ROTC. But among the three programs under NSTP, I strongly prefer ROTC, Why? ...well aside from feeling epic and awesome as if your going to war and all.. it dedicates itself to excellence and leadership aimed on nation-building and socio-civic welfare, through humanitarian assistance and utilizing competencies learned intended for public service It also instills in students of the Philippine educational society, the value of citizenship , service to the Country, personal responsibility . Furthermore, it builds character, discipline, and a feeling of accomplishment. It also develops personality and leadership skills that cadets may use to help them build successful civilian careers someday. The ROTC program has served the country well since its creation. Thousands of young men and women have graduated from its camps with greater patriotism. And it has......
