FOREWORD

The Florida Air Force Junior ROTC FL-082nd Cadet Group was established at Citrus High School
in 1973 by agreement between the Citrus County Schools District and the United States Air Force.

The Air Force Junior ROTC (AFJROTC) curriculum includes aerospace related academic
instruction and leadership training. The Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI) and
the Aerospace Science Instructor (ASI) are retired Air Force personnel with extensive
backgrounds in professional education and Air Force training.

The cadet group will be managed and operated by cadet commissioned and noncommissioned
officers. Through the cadet organization, cadets learn leadership skills and how to direct activities.

This cadet guide contains policy guidance, requirements, and rules of conduct for AFJROTC
cadets at Citrus High School. Each cadet is required to study this guide and will be held
responsible for its contents on examination. Remember that it is only a guide and not a substitute
for initiative, common sense, and good judgment.

Our congratulations go to each of you on your decision to enroll in the AFJROTC program. We
wish you success and personal satisfaction as members of Citrus High School's FL-082nd
AFJROTC Cadet Group.

Expected
Conduct
1. GENERAL: Cadets are expected to follow Citrus High School and AFJROTC rules
at all times. They should always strive to uphold the Air Force’s core values. Your
behavior reflects upon you, the cadet corps, and the United States Air Force.

2. AIR FORCE CORE VALUES. Values represent enduring, guiding principles for
which we as individuals or organizations stand. “Core” values are so fundamental
that they define our very identity. The United States Air Force has clearly defined its
identity by these three simple values: Integrity First, Service Before Self,
and Excellence In All We Do.

a. INTEGRITY FIRST. “Integrity” is simply doing the right thing, all the time,
whether everyone is watching or no one is watching. It is the compass that
keeps us on the right path when we are confronted with ethical challenges and
personal temptations, and it is the foundation upon which trust is built. The
virtues that demonstrate you truly value integrity include honesty, courage and
accountability.

b. SERVICE BEFORE SELF. “Service "All the


Before Self” tells us that our duties
great
take precedence over personal
desires. The call to serve is a call to things
live according to a higher standard. are
It is a commitment that takes energy, simple,
dedication, and sacrifice. The virtues and
that demonstrate you truly value many
service include duty, loyalty and
can be expressed in a single word:
respect.
freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy,
hope.” Winston Churchill

c. EXCELLENCE IN ALL WE DO. “Excellence In All We Do” does NOT mean that
we demand perfection in everything from everyone. Instead, this value directs us
to always do our best and continuously improve. The virtues that demonstrate
you truly value excellence include focus on the mission, discipline and
teamwork.

3. CADET HONOR CODE. The cadet honor code states: “We will not lie, cheat
or steal, nor tolerate among us anyone who does.” Cadets are
expected to report themselves for any code violation. Furthermore, they must
confront any other cadet they believe may have violated the code and report the
incident if the situation is not resolved. This creates an atmosphere of trust and
accountability. A board of cadet officers and/or NCOs will investigate honor code
violations and recommend disciplinary action to the instructors. In extreme cases,
violations of the honor code can result in being removed from AFJROTC.

4. CLASSROOM PROCEDURES:

a. At the beginning of each class period, the class leader, or designated


representative, after attendance, will lead the flight in the pledge of allegiance,
cadet honor code and make any announcements as required.
b. When the bell rings at the end of the class period, the class leader will ask an
instructor for permission to dismiss. No personal items will be left in the
AFJROTC classroom unless approved by an instructor.

5. EXPECTED CONDUCT.

a. DO:

i. Treat other cadets with dignity and respect.


ii. Take care of each other.
iii. BE ON TIME!
iv. Remove all headgear before coming indoors, including military hats.
v. Comply with all legitimate directions given by flight commanders, flight
sergeants, cadet officers, class leaders or any cadet(s) placed in charge.
vi. Bring all required materials to class including a pen or
pencil and notebook paper.
vii. Sit in your assigned seat. Request permission before
leaving your seat or the classroom during class time.
viii. Participate in all classroom activities.
ix. Strive to improve yourself and the cadet corps. Offer
constructive suggestions to make things better.
x. Place all trash in a trash can prior to leaving the classroom.
xi. Respect public and private property.
xii. Request permission from an instructor before using the
classroom telephone.
xiii. Notify any instructor or the senior ranking cadet if
you become ill.

b. DO NOT:

i. Disrupt the class or interrupt


others while they are speaking.
ii. Throw anything in the classroom. Minuteman ICBM

iii. Chew gum in the classroom or in


formation.

iv. Eat, drink, or bring food/drinks into the classroom without instructor
permission.
v. Sleep in class – if you feel drowsy, stand quietly in the back of the room.
vi. Work on assignments from other classes without permission from
the instructor.
vii. Use cameras, cell phones, music players, headphones or other
electronic devices during class without permission from the instructor.
viii. Use vulgar, obscene or profane language or make racial slurs, sexist
comments or improper gestures.
ix. Engage in horseplay.
x. Sit or place feet on tables or desktops.
xi. Place feet on chairs or tilt chairs backwards on rear legs.
xii. Write on the classroom boards or post notices without approval from an
instructor.
xiii. Disturb pictures or bulletin board items, or remove markers/erasers from the
board tray.
xiv. Write on or deface tables, desktops, chairs, walls, books, etc.
xv. Talk when the instructor is talking.

c. On scheduled drill or physical training days, all cadets must participate. Cadets
with an injury or condition that prevents participation may be excused for up to
three days with a note from a parent/guardian. Only a note from the school nurse
or a medical doctor can excuse a cadet for a longer period.

6. DIGNITY AND RESPECT. The corps can accomplish its mission only if each person
treats others with dignity and respect. We build leaders, and as such, ensure that no
cadet is mistreated.

a. We do not use exercise as a form of punishment, unnecessarily embarrass


cadets in front of their peers, or assign degrading tasks. We do not use
disciplinary exercises such as push-ups, deep-knee bends, sit-ups, low crawls,
or any other activity that has the potential to place a cadet in a strenuous or
exhausting position. We do not initiate unnecessary physical contact including
poking, hitting, thumping, pushing or grabbing. We do not threaten physical
violence.

b. We do not use language that degrades, belittles, demeans, or slanders an


individual or group based on color, national origin, race, religion, ethnic group,
gender, age, or physical stature. We do not use profanity or crude language, and
we avoid language that establishes a hostile environment or promotes sexual
harassment.

7. HAZING. Hazing is any conduct by someone in authority that fails to treat others
with dignity and respect. This includes any activity which is cruel, abusive,
humiliating, oppressive, demeaning, or harmful. Encouraging or coercing another
cadet to carry out any such activity is also considered hazing. Hazing does not
always involve physical contact among or between cadets; it can be verbal or
psychological in nature. Actual or implied consent to acts of hazing does not make it
right. AFJROTC encourages respect and caring for others, therefore HAZING BY
AFJROTC CADETS
IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED! Report suspected incidents of hazing to an instructor
immediately.

8. FRATERNIZATION. Fraternization is an inappropriate relationship between cadets


of different rank or class standing. Specifically, upperclass cadets that hold a
position of authority (ALL cadet officers, and any cadet NCO filling a leadership
position) will not become involved in a relationship with any first-year cadet that
could compromise the chain of command, result in the appearance of partiality, or
otherwise undermine good order, discipline, authority, or morale. This includes, but
is not limited to, serious emotional relationships.

9. PUBLIC DISPLAY OF AFFECTION (PDA). At no time, while in uniform, will cadets


kiss, hold hands, embrace, walk arm-in-arm, or engage in any other public display
of affection which may reflect unfavorably on the AFJROTC program. These rules
apply on or off campus, between two cadets AND between a cadet and any other
student.

10. FAILURE TO MAINTAIN STANDARDS. Cadets who consistently fail to maintain


acceptable standards (including uniform wear and grooming) or display a pattern of
poor behavior may:

a. Lose the privilege of participating in AFJROTC activities (special teams,


field trips, field day, etc).

b. Be demoted to a lower rank and/or reassigned from positions of


leadership.

c. Be removed from AFJROTC.

“You can't lose a war if you have


command of the air, and you
can't win a war if you haven't.”
Jimmy Doolittle
Section 4
Customs and Courtesies
1. MILITARY COURTESIES. When addressing AFJROTC instructors, higher ranking
cadets, other teachers or school officials, begin with “Ma’am” or “Sir”. The correct
response to a “yes” or “no” question is “Yes, Ma’am/Sir” or “No, Ma’am/Sir”. The
proper way to address the AFJROTC instructors is:

Colonel Yamrose “Colonel Yamrose” ”

Master Sergeant Brown “Sergeant Brown”

2. SALUTING. The salute is a respectful greeting exchanged between military


personnel. Saluting expresses mutual trust and respect. Your instructors will teach
you the proper manner of saluting and the rules. Listed below are some of the more
important saluting rules.

a. When you are in uniform outdoors:

i. Enlisted cadets salute all cadet officers in uniform. Cadet officers salute
higher- ranking cadet officers in uniform.

ii. Salute all military officers in uniform.

iii. Begin the salute in time to allow the higher-ranking cadet/military officer to
return it.

iv. If you are carrying articles in both hands you do not need to salute, although
you will be saluted if you are the higher-ranking cadet. The person being
saluted should verbally acknowledge the salute.

b. In or out of uniform, salute whenever you report in to an instructor or higher-


ranking cadet.

c. Salute the inspecting officer when reporting for uniform inspection.

3. REPORTING PROCEDURES.

a. Entrance. Before you enter an office, ensure your uniform and hair is correct and
neat. If carrying items, place them in your left hand so you can salute properly.
Knock once. If no one answers within a reasonable amount of time, knock again.
If the door is open, knock on the door frame. When you are told to enter:

i. If you opened a door, close it behind you.


ii. Using the most direct route, march to a position approximately two paces in
front of and centered on the cadet officer/instructor.

iii. Halt at the position of attention facing the officer/instructor, render a salute
and state “Sir/Ma’am, Cadet (your rank and last name) reports as ordered”.

iv. Hold your salute until the officer/instructor returns it. Remain at the position of
attention until directed otherwise.

b. Departure. When you are dismissed:

i. Resume the position of attention (if necessary) and salute. Hold your salute
until the officer/instructor returns it.

ii. Execute the appropriate facing movement and leave the office by the most
direct route.

4. NATIONAL ANTHEM. When the National Anthem is being played, face the flag (if
visible) or the music, and:

a. When you are in uniform, outdoors, stand at attention and render the hand
salute. Hold the salute until the music stops playing. If the flag is being raised or
lowered hold the salute until the flag has stopped moving.

b. When you are in uniform, indoors, stand at attention. Do not render the hand
salute or place your right hand over your heart.

c. When you are in civilian clothes, indoors or outdoors, stand at attention with your
right hand over your heart.

5. PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. While reciting the pledge, face the flag and:

a. When you are in uniform, outdoors, stand at attention and render the hand salute.

b. When you are in uniform, indoors, stand at attention. Do not render the hand
salute or place your right hand over your heart.

c. When you are in civilian clothes, indoors or outdoors, stand at attention facing
the flag with your right hand over your heart.

6. RAISING AND LOWERING THE FLAG.

a. Raising the flag. One cadet will attend the halyards, while another cadet
attaches the flag to the clips. (If available, a third cadet will help hold the flag.)
Take care that no portion of the flag touches the ground. The flag should be
raised quickly. Once the flag is clear of the ground, the cadets that were
holding the flag come to attention and execute present arms until the flag
reaches the top of the flagpole.
b. Lowering the flag. One cadet will attend the halyards. All other cadets stand at
attention and execute present arms until the flag is low enough to grasp. The
flag should be lowered ceremoniously (slowly). Take care that no portion of
the flag touches the ground.

c. Half-staff. When flown at half-staff, the flag should first be raised (quickly) to the
top of the flagpole for a moment, and then lowered (slowly) to a position
centered between the top of the flagpole and the ground. To assist in positioning
the flag, one cadet should stand away from the flagpole and direct the cadets
attending the halyards. The state flag will be placed at half-staff, lower than the
US flag. You do not have to raise the state flag in the same manner as the US
flag. At the end of the day, the flag should again be raised to the top of the
flagpole before it is lowered ceremoniously.

d. Cadets who are outdoors within view of the flag should face the flagpole at the
position of attention and render the hand salute (if in uniform) or place their right
hand over their heart until the flag has stopped moving.

7. DISPLAYING THE FLAG IN THE CAFETORIUM.

a. When displayed from a staff on stage, the flag of the United States of America
should be in the position of honor at the speaker’s right as he/she faces the
audience. Any other flag should be placed to the left of the speaker (to the right
of the audience).

b. When displayed from a staff off the podium, the flag of the United States of
America should be to the right of the audience.

1. As an Air Force Junior ROTC cadet, you represent the United States Air Force
(USAF) and your unit (FL-082). You must constantly strive to present a clean, neat,
and well- groomed image. Any objectionable behavior at school or in public creates
an unfavorable impression of the program and the USAF. The following rules are
derived from AFI 36-2903, Dress and Appearance of Air Force Personnel and
AFJROTC Operational Supplement – Chapter 7.

Section 7
Rank and Promotions

1. PROMOTION POLICY: The purpose of the promotion policy is twofold. First, to


have a visible system of reward and recognition for cadets who consistently meet or
exceed standards of behavior, appearance, leadership and academic ability.
Second, to give the cadet leadership an opportunity to evaluate the performance of
others, recognize achievement and reward deserving cadets with advance rank.
The goal is to ensure that cadets who contribute to the success of the group are
recognized by advancement in rank. There will be 3 promotion cycles each year—
end of the 1st nine weeks, end of the semester and the end of the 3 rd quarter.
Promotions for exceptional performances will be at the SASI/ASI discretion and so
designated on official orders.

2. PERMANENT RANK. At the beginning of each school year, cadets will be promoted
to the permanent rank shown in the table below. The retention of permanent ranks
in the cadet corps is contingent on satisfactory performance and behavior as
determined by the SASI or ASI.

Year Permanent Rank


nd
2 Cadet Airman First
Year Class
3rd Cadet Senior Airman
Year
4th Cadet Staff Sergeant
Year

3. TEMPORARY RANK. Cadets may have a temporary rank based on a specific


assigned position (job) as determined by the SASI. Cadets serving in an assigned
position revert to their permanent rank upon removal from the position, with the
exception of graduating seniors. The SASI may allow graduating seniors to retain
the highest rank held.

4. OFFICER STATUS. Once a cadet has held an officer position for two or more
semesters, that cadet will remain in officer status for the remainder of the time spent
in the program (i.e. permanent rank of Cadet Second Lieutenant). Exceptions are
determined by the SASI.

5. OFFICER/NCO RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORITY. Cadet officers and NCOs are


responsible for maintaining discipline and for setting a proper example at all times.
Cadet officers and NCOs are authorized to give orders to cadets who are junior to
them. This authority is confined to AFJROTC activities only and will be exercised
only in carrying out assigned AFJROTC responsibilities. Cadet officers and NCOs
have no authority to excuse other cadets from scheduled classes or formations.

6. SPOT PROMOTIONS: At the SASI’s discretion, cadets may be promoted to any


permanent rank based on attitude, effort, and overall contribution to the Cadet Corp.
Section 8
Cadet Group Organization

1. FL-082 is organized as a Cadet Group.

2. The following organizational charts reflect a “chain of command”, connecting Cadet


Wing functions or positions. Decisions, guidance and information flow down the
chain in the form of oral and written instructions. Information and recommendations
used by cadet leaders in decision making also flow up the chain of command.
Cadets should follow the chain of command when attempting to resolve a
grievance. Give your immediate supervisor a chance to solve the problem first, and
then see your supervisor’s supervisor, and so on up the chain. If you use the chain
of command and are still not satisfied, you may speak with the Cadet Inspector
General or your instructor.

3. Cadets are assigned positions within the Cadet Group based on their abilities and
interests along with:
● Performance in previous
positions
● Potential
● Years in cadet corps
● Grades
● Participation
● Needs of the unit

4. To maximize opportunities for leadership training, cadet corps positions may be


reassigned each semester.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the
strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done
them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the
arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives
valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is
no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive
to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the
end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails,
at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with
those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Leadership Development Activities

1. There are several AFJROTC activities that supplement and reinforce aerospace and
leadership education objectives. The list of activities below is not inclusive and will
change depending on what activities cadets want and support. Many of these
activities earn points toward the letter jacket and/or other awards and decorations.
See the FL- 082 Awards and Decorations Guide and applicable operating
instructions for more details. If you are interested in participating in any leadership
development activities, talk to your flight sergeant or an instructor.

2. Special Teams. A cadet must have the permission of an instructor to be on more


than one special team at a time.

a. Armed/Unarmed Regulation Drill Team – This is a basic marching team of 10


cadets, organized as a flight, including the commander. The armed team uses
rifles; the unarmed team does not. This team is trained in all marching
movements and commands. The team performs at a variety of events such as
parades and drill competitions.

b. Armed/Unarmed Exhibition Drill Team – This is an exhibition team that


performs with (armed) or without (unarmed) rifles. The team does not have
formal commands, but creates its own performance routines. In other words, the
commander and the team make up their own routine. The team performs at a
variety of events such as parades, recruiting visits and drill competitions. The
team commander determines how many cadets are on the team.

c. Color Guard – The Color Guard is made up of four to seven cadets: two to five
flag bearers and two flag guards that carry rifles. The Color Guard carries the
colors (flags) at events such as football games, parades and school ceremonies.
The Color Guard may also compete in drill competitions. If there is enough
interest, more than one Color Guard detail may be established.

d. Saber Team – The Saber team participates in graduation and other ceremonies.
It also welcomes distinguished guests and performs other duties as determined
by the SASI.

e. Physical Fitness Team – This team competes in physical fitness activities such
as running, push ups, sit ups, obstacle course and other events. Team size and
specific events vary from competition to competition. Note: To participate on the
Physical Fitness Team you must pass a sports physical exam.

3. Other Teams and Clubs.

a. Kitty Hawk Air Society (KHAS) – Kitty Hawk is like the National Honor Society,
but only for Air Force JROTC cadets. Kitty Hawk promotes high academic
standards and community service. To join KHAS a cadet must have a an overall
grade point average of at least 80, in addition to a 90 or better grade in AFJROTC,
and no grade below 70. See the applicable operating instruction for more details.

b. Marksmanship Team – All cadets interested in joining the team must pass the
safety test before they are allowed to use the air rifles. Cadets compete in postal
matches around the US. Membership with the Civilian Marksmanship Program is
required.

c. Academic Bowl – The Academic Bowl is a nationwide academic competition for


JROTC cadets from all branches. Teams consist of four primary members and two
alternates (no seniors). Teams answer questions on JROTC curriculum, English,
math, science and current events. The championship round is held in Washington,
DC.

d. Model Airplane Club – This is a club devoted to exploring the wonders of aircraft
and aerospace science. Cadets meet periodically to assemble model airplanes.
Cadets also create a display for and write a report on their aircraft.

e. Model Rocketry Club – Members of this club learn how to build and launch model
rockets. Cadets who meet the AFJROTC qualifications are also eligible for a
Rocketry Badge that is worn on the uniform.

f. Awareness Presentation Team (APT) – Members of the APT make


presentations to elementary and middle school students on topics of current interest
(high school dropouts, drug use, peer pressure, etc). Cadets who meet the
qualifications listed in the Awards and Decorations Guide are also eligible for an
APT Badge that is worn on the uniform.

g. CyberPatriot Team – CyberPatriot is the premier national high school cyber


defense competition sponsored by the Air Force Association. A CyberPatriot team
consists of five students and up to five alternates. Computer experience is not
required.

h. sUAS (Drone) Team Cadets must join the Academy of Model Aviation (AMA) and
complete the online tutorials prior to flying any remotely operated aircraft with
AFJROTC. The team works with WCHS and the group to provide aerial video
footage of events.

i. Orienteering Team Cadets use a map and compass to find waypoints on a course
racing against time, and other teams to overcome obstacles to win.

.
4. Other Leadership Development Activities.

a. Community Service – Throughout the school year, cadets will have the
opportunity to participate in community service projects such as food drives and
helping at Alief Community Garden.

b. Fund Raising – Fund raising helps pay for corps activities and events such as
field trips, banquets and sports days.

c. Recruiting – Recruiting is mainly conducted through recruiting visits to middle


schools, Open House, and cadets recruiting other students one-on-one. One-on-
one recruiting is the most powerful way to maintain FL-082’s enrollment. Every
cadet should consider himself or herself to be a recruiter. Participation in
recruiting activities earns points towards the Recruiting ribbon. See the
applicable operating instruction for more details.

d. Military Ball – The military ball is a formal occasion that allows cadets to
socialize while practicing etiquette learned in class. The ball includes recognition
of seniors, a guest speaker, dinner and a dance.

e. Parades – The cadet corps participates in a number of parades each year


including the Veterans Day parade and a Pass-In-Review. Parades provide an
opportunity for the cadet corps to display its marching and drill skills,
appearance, discipline and pride.

f. Comp Day – Comp Day is a friendly competition against other Citrus County
JROTC units. The competition host rotates each year. Comp is an opportunity
for cadets to have fun and build esprit de corps. Activities include drill,
marksmanship, color guard, and track and field events.

g. Awards Ceremony – An awards ceremony is held at the end of the school year.
Cadets who have earned awards or otherwise distinguished themselves will be
recognized.

h. Field Trips – Field trips support the AFJROTC curriculum and enhance cadets’
morale and esprit de corps. Trips may be taken to military bases, museums and
educational sites. Requirements to participate in a field trip vary and will be
discussed by your instructor.

i. Leadership School – The purpose of Leadership School is to prepare cadets


for leadership positions in the Cadet Corps. It is usually conducted the week
after school starts, and activities include physical fitness training, drill, team
building exercises and classes on leadership. See the applicable operating
instruction (OI) for more information.

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and
degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks
that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. A man who has
nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he
cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a
miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless
made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

Air Force Song
Off we go into the wild blue

yonder, Climbing high into the

sun;

Here they come zooming to meet our


thunder, At 'em boys, Give 'er the gun!
(Give 'er the gun!) Down we dive,
spouting our flame from under, Off
with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in

flame. Hey!

Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!
