Memo from U.S. Army Cadet Command ordering JROTC teachers to help the military recruit students into the Army. Can be used to rebut claims that JROTC is not a recruiting program.
NOTE: Project YANO has received copy of a memorandum, dated Oct. 6, 2008, rescinding Policy Memorandum #50. It is signed by Maj. Gen. W. Montague Winfield, Commander of the U.S. Army Cadet Command. It is important to note that for years prior to the issuance of Memorandum #50, and during the nine years it was in effect, proponents of JROTC continuously claimed it was not a recruiting program. Memorandum #50 was not, in fact, the only proof of JROTC's recruiting function. For example, DoD officials have repeatedly boasted of its success as a recruiting tool in testimony given to Congress. The rescission of Memorandum #50 does not change the reality that JROTC truly is a military recruiting program.
