"Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory." ~ General George S. Patton.   

 My journey here at Brandon High School JROTC began 3 November 2003. Having this opportunity to watch young people grow and become productive citizens motivates and drives me forward.  Brandon High School JROTC is one of the top Army JROTC Programs in the nation. Our accreditation inspections, the number of cadets we send to universities, service academies, college ROTC, and the military service validates this claim.

 Parents can rest assured that we will push your cadets out of their comfort zones and bring the best out of  them, academically and physically.  We strive for excellence!  I often hear that JROTC influences and push cadets into the military.  This is not true.  The fact is we (Instructors) are prohibited, by regulartory guidance to not influence students in the direction of the military. Any cadet that is interested in the military service will be directed to the appropiate service recruiters. 

Our sole mission is to "Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens."  That is what I do!

It is a pleasure to serve as a JROTC instructor at Brandon High School.
