DHS JROTC's goal is to reinforce the important values for mental and physical development in our youth. We teach Cadets the common values in the way we live our lives. These values are from the Seven Army Values – LDRSHIP
Loyalty - Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the community, school, your family, JROTC unit, and other cadets.
Duty - Fulfill your obligations.
Respect - Treat people as they should be treated. The Golden Rule!
Selfless Service - Put the welfare of the nation, your unit, and your subordinates before your own.
Honor - Live up to all the values.
Integrity - Do what’s right, legally and morally.
Personal Courage - Face fear, danger, or adversity [physical or moral.
Cadets are allowed to lead other cadets and learn the importance of diversity. Cadets who are confident, focused, and determined to excel are more active in classroom instruction, and their grades will improve in other classes. The Army Instructors encourage all cadets to attend a post-secondary school, whether a four-year university or vocational school. Contrary to belief, we DO NOT promote or encourage Cadets to join the military services. We are prohibited from doing this in accordance with our regulatory guidance.
If a cadet is interested in military service, we will meet with their selected service recruiter. The recruiter will contact the Cadet and their parents to arrange an interview. The Army Instructors at Dothan High School are committed to helping all of our cadets to be successful in life regardless of the path they take after high school.
