                      BUILDING BETTER CITIZENS FOR AMERICA

                               CADET HONOR CODE:

      I WILL NOT LIE, CHEAT OR STEAL, NOR WILL I TOLERATE THOSE WHO DO.

                                 OUR CORE VALUES:

Core values are the foundation upon which a truly quality Air Force Junior ROTC
Program is built. Core values are also a fundamental set of guidelines that can serve you
throughout your life. These are:

                                - INTEGRITY FIRST -
  Integrity means devotion to honesty, truthfulness, doing one’s duty, and doing what is
right. This means that your word can always be counted upon and that you can be trusted
                                to accomplish your job.

                               - SERVICE BEFORE SELF -
Service is the giving of self to provide for the welfare of others. Personal desires are not
                           considered in the concept of service.

                         - EXCELLENCE IN ALL WE DO -
Excellence means doing the very best you can in each job you perform regardless of how
                  large, small, difficult, or easy it is to accomplish.

                                CHAPTER 1
                                      OBJECTIVES

1-1:   Overview

         The Aerospace Science course introduces the historical, scientific, and technical
aspects of aerospace. Leadership Education provides experiences to develop discipline,
responsibility, communication skills, and citizenship. Leadership also includes wearing
the Air Force uniform, the proper use of Air Force customs and courtesies, participating
in drill and ceremonies, giving and receiving instructions, and acting as leaders and
outstanding members of FL-20082 AFJROTC.

       Students do not incur any service obligation by participating in the program.
Students who satisfactorily complete two years of the program and receive a "Certificate
of Training" may, upon request, have one semester of college level Air Force ROTC
(AFJROTC) General Military Course (GMC) credited.

       Students who successfully complete two academic years of AFJROTC are entitled
to advanced promotion of no less than E-2 on initial enlistment in an Active or a Reserve
component of a Military Service. At their discretion, the Military Departments may
award the grade of E-3 for successful completion of three academic years of AFJROTC.
The U. S. Air Force awards E-3 to those cadets who complete three years of AFJROTC
and are High School Graduates.

1-2:   AFJROTC Objectives

1-4:   Disenrollment

        Disenrollment from AFJROTC is recommended by the SASI and is approved by
the principal. Disenrollment will be used as a last resort. A cadet may be disenrolled for
the following reasons: failure to maintain uniform standards (including uniform wear and
grooming); inaptitude or indifference to training; disciplinary reasons; failure to remain
enrolled in school.

1-5:   Kitty Hawk Air Society

        Kitty Hawk Air Society (KHAS) is an honor society exclusively for AFJROTC
cadets regardless of year, experience, or rank with a minimum GPA of 3.5. Cadet
members must be active in the corps, school, and community, and be of good moral
standing. Membership is on a strictly volunteer basis. The purpose of the KHAS is to
improve fellow cadets’ grade point average through peer tutoring, to promote esprit de
corps, and to improve the school and community through service projects that promote
cadet leadership and unit teamwork. All members are issued a Kitty Hawk Air Society
badge that will be worn on the uniform and are required to tutor another cadet that is a
non-KHAS member, for a minimum of four hours a month. The KHAS member will be
assigned a cadet to be tutored and it will be up to the cadet to arrange and keep track of
the hours tutored. The commander will counsel cadets with issues of failing grades
during the beginning of each quarter. Besides tutoring, KHAS is a service organization
that will participate in projects for the corps, school, or community. There will be some
joint projects with the National Honor Society.

1-6:   Rocket Club

       The Rocket Club is formed during the second semester of the year. Cadets build
rockets and hold various positions during launches. Upon successful completion of three
launches and recoveries, the cadet is awarded a Rocket Badge, which is worn on the
uniform. Most activities are held during school hours.

1-7:   Model Club

        The Model Club may meet during the first semester of the year and build model
airplanes. Aircraft are displayed in the classroom. In some cases, groups are assigned
responsibility for completing more or complicated models. Oral reports are given on the
specific model.

1-8:   The Drug Awareness Program

        The purpose of the Drug Awareness Program is to develop and promote
awareness that points out the crippling effects of substance abuse. The Awareness
Presentation Team (APT) was created in 1990 in support of former President George
Bush's initiatives to keep students in school and off drugs. Headquarters AFROTC added
it to the program curriculum the same year. The APT will consist of three to six cadets
who will engage in dialogue with students of the seventh grade or younger. The aim of
the program is to:
      present another group with positive goals to be identified with.
      promote awareness of impediments to personal growth.
      present information with a young adult orientation to a young audience.
      present positive role model images.

1-9:   AFJROTC Classroom Procedures

   1. Preparing the flight for classroom instruction:
    The flight sergeant will take the report at the appropriate class time and report to
      the flight commander. All absentees and tardies will be reported. The flight
      commander will report to the instructor any absentees and tardies. Students will
      face the American flag and render the Pledge of Allegiance.
    Absentees and tardies will be documented by the instructor as required by school
      policies.
    No person will be reported as present unless they are in the classroom.
    When it is time to change classes, the flight commander will call the flight to
      attention. Upon receiving permission, the flight commander dismisses the flight.
      The flight will remain at attention until dismissed.

   2. All classes will be conducted in a military manner. The following are a few of the
      rules of conduct that will apply daily while in the classroom:

      Speak only when called upon.
      Answer Sir or Ma’am to all in authority positions.
      Be prepared (writing utensils, notebooks) and on time. 6P’s-- Punctual, Paper,
       Pencil, Protocol, Prepared and Positive to learn)
      Be considerate and courteous to others.
                                CHAPTER 2
                     STANDARD CADET INFORMATION
2-1:   Cadet Honor Code:

          “I WILL NOT LIE, CHEAT OR STEAL, NOR WILL I TOLERATE
                           THOSE WHO DO.”
        These simple words provide the basis for a personal code of honesty that will
sustain you for the rest of your life. The Honor Code is specific and clear in what it
demands. We should all know right from wrong and choose right. A cadet is expected to
have complete integrity and honesty in both word and action. A cadet avoids evasive or
misleading statements. Each cadet does his/her own work on anything that is to be
graded. The Honor Code belongs to the cadets.

       Maintaining high standards of trustworthiness is the responsibility of each cadet.
This requires self-control and conscious effort at all times. The purpose of the code goes
beyond the part of one's life that involves AFJROTC training. It should become a
personal ethical code and a way of life.

2-2:   Standards of Conduct:

       Individuals become good leaders by exhibiting qualities of intelligence, good
judgment, decisiveness and initiative. They inspire others to follow them by setting
examples of confidence and maturity. In order to realize their highest potential, cadets
must maintain high standards of self-discipline, high ideals, good manners, social grace,
appropriate dress (in or out of uniform), and good grooming.

2-11: How To: Perform an Open Ranks Inspection

1 Position:

      Six paces in front of and centered on the flight

2 Open ranks:

      Give the command <Open Ranks March>. Proper distance is 70 inches between
       ranks. The flight automatically executes <Dress Right Dress> and remains so
       until the flight has been aligned.

3 Align the flight:

      This is a formality. Go quickly. Do proper facing movements. After aligning
       elements, march three paces past the flight and execute a <Left Face>.

4 Ready front:

      Give the command <Ready Front>. Take one pace, execute a <Right Face>,
       salute, and report to the inspector as appropriate. For example: “(Sir/Ma’am), the
       flight is prepared for inspection.” You will then be inspected and then asked to
       accompany him/her during the inspection.


5 Prepare the flight:

      After you are inspected, execute a <Left Face> and give the command
       (Second/Third/Fourth Elements) <Parade Rest>. Now execute a <Half-Left
       Face> as in marching and halt one pace to the right and one pace behind the
       instructor

6 Inspection:

      The flight commander and the flight sergeant must follow the inspector through
       the ranks. The flight commander must step off with the left foot and execute an in
       place halt as the inspector moves from cadet to cadet. The flight sergeant follows
       the inspector and records all discrepancies. At the end of each element, the flight
       sergeant follows the inspector. Element leaders must call their elements to
       <Attention> and give their elements <Parade Rest> at the proper times. Element
       leaders must assume the position of <Attention> prior to calling their respective
       elements to <Attention>.
7 Post inspection:

   After the last element has been inspected, the inspector will march off. The flight
    sergeant then marches to a position one pace to the right and three paces past the
    flight, executes a <Left Face> and calls the flight to <Attention>. The flight sergeant
    then takes one pace forwards and executes a <Right Face>. The flight sergeant will
    receive comments from the inspector and salute the inspector upon departure.

8 Close ranks:

       Immediately after the inspector departs, the flight sergeant executes a <Left Face>
        and gives the command <Close Ranks March>. The flight sergeant then marches
        by the most direct route to a position six paces in front of, centered on, and facing
        the flight. The flight sergeant will give feedback to the flight and await further
        instructions from the flight commander.


2-12: How To: Shine Shoes


This how-to was derived from a shoe shining tutorial at http://www.learn2.com.

Leather dress shoes need shining! A good shine preserves their longevity by moisturizing

the leather. Leather, like your own skin, can dry out and crack,-so shoe care professionals

use polish to prevent desiccation and to restore lost moisture. You should do the same by

giving your leather shoes a shine at least once a month.

Materials needed:

    1. A section of newspaper
    2. Cotton balls and at least one old cloth (T-shirts work great. You’ll need two or
       three of these if you don’t want to use cotton balls)
    3. Wax or cream shoe polish
    4. Saddle soap [optional]
    5. A soft bristle (e.g., horsehair) brush [optional]

***There are many methods for shining shoes. One simple method is to dip the cotton
ball in water and rub polish on the shoe in a circular motion. Add more water as
necessary. See above site for directions.

3-4:   Promotion Policy

        The purpose of the promotion policy is twofold. First, to have a visible system of
reward or 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 advanced rank. The goal is to insure 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 3rd quarter. Promotions for exceptional performances will be at the SASI/ASI
discretion and so designated on official orders.

***In the unfortunate circumstance that a cadet’s behavior warrants it, a cadet may
lose rank (be demoted) for infractions such as skipping school, fighting, etc. The
SASI will have the final say for cadet demotions.

3-5:   Transfer Cadets

        Cadets transferring to FL-20082 may hold the same permanent rank held when
departing the previous JROTC unit, regardless of branch of service. Cadets transferring

equal value. Rank must be verified in writing by the previous JROTC unit. All cadets
transferring from other JROTC units must complete all FL-20082 promotion
requirements for the rank held before becoming eligible for promotion. Awards and

                        AIR FORCE JUNIOR ROTC UNIFORMS

4-1:   Wear of the Uniform

        The AFJROTC cadet uniform is, with certain exceptions, the same as that worn
by active duty personnel. Except as authorized in this guide, AFJROTC cadets will wear
the service dress uniform as described in AFI 36-2903. It is the cadet's responsibility to
ensure that the uniform is available and in inspection condition on the designated uniform
day. Uniforms must be kept clean, neat, correct in design and specifications, and in good
condition. Badges, insignias, and other metallic devices must be maintained in proper
luster condition. The weekly uniform day is Wednesday. Exceptions to this policy will be
announced in advance by the SASI/ASI. Cadets are required to remain in uniform for
the entire day, unless classroom activity prevents this and has SASI/ASI approval.
Cadets will were approved ribbons and medals on uniforms at all times. Cadets
failing to wear approved medals and ribbons may lose the privilege of wearing the
medals or ribbons. Determination is made by the SASI.              Cadets participating in
orientation flights or JROTC field trips are required to wear the appropriate uniform, as
directed by the SASI/ASI.

       After issue of the Air Force uniform, cadets will acknowledge receipt for items by
signing a uniform issue receipt. By signing this receipt, cadets agree to exercise all
reasonable caution and care to assure that items of Air Force property are cared for and
not damaged due to carelessness, neglect, improper cleaning and/or laundering methods.
Further, cadets are required to return all uniform items to the SASI/ASI upon demand
when the student is no longer in the AFJROTC program. Cadets will be required to
reimburse the Air Force for any lost or willfully damaged uniform item.

        Cadets will not wear a mix of cadet uniform and civilian clothing items. Cadets
with legitimate (medical) reasons for not wearing certain uniform items must consult with
the SASI/ASI for a waiver of uniform requirements as soon as knowledge of the medical
condition is recognized - not after. Wearing a civilian coat with the uniform will result in
a grade of F.

       The authorized uniform combination for each week will be directed by the ASI or
SASI. The optional cadet BDU uniform will be allowed during the first inspection for
each month or when directed by the ASI or SASI. Cadets will be graded on appearance
and condition, placement of insignias, condition of shoes, military bearing, hair,
grooming, etc. Each inspection will be worth 100 points. Extra credit may be awarded to
cadets who display truly exemplary personal appearance.

        The shoulder cords are designed to recognize significant performance by cadets,
identify ceremonial teams and recognize academic achievement. To meet these goals,
cords will be issued by the ASI or Logistics Officer and the cadet will be responsible for
maintaining the cord and returning the cord at the end of the activity or period the cord
was intended to recognize. Shoulder cords are worn on the left shoulder. Purple cords
are reserved for Dill Team members, white for Color Guard and Vice Commander,
                                            21
yellow is for Cadet of the Month, and blue is for the Corps Commander. Cords are only
worn with blues and service dress uniform combinations.




The SASI, ASI, Group Commander and Honor Guard Commander, will determine
which cords will be used to recognize cadet achievement. Cadets of the Month will
wear the gold cord.


4-2:   Male Standards of Dress and Appearance

        Articles such as handkerchiefs, pencils and pens, watch chain, pin jewelry,
wallets, and sunglasses are not worn or carried exposed on any uniform. The wearing of
wristwatches, identification bracelets, and no more than three rings are permitted.
Conservative sunglasses may be worn but not in military formation.


        Hair must be a natural color, neat, clean, trimmed, and present a conservative and
groomed appearance. Neatly trimmed haircuts are authorized for the back of the head as
long as a tapered appearance is kept. Hair will not touch ears or the collar except the
closely cut hair on the back of the neck. Hair in front is groomed so that it does not fall
below the eyebrows and will not protrude below the band of properly worn headgear. The
ASI must authorize braided hairstyles or modern haircuts. In no case will the bulk of the
hair interfere with the proper wear of any Air Force headgear.


        Sideburns are neatly trimmed in the same manner as the hair. Sideburns do not
extend beyond the bottom of the ear opening, are straight and even in width, and end with
a clean-shaven, horizontal line.


        The face is clean-shaven. However, a mustache is permitted as long as it is neatly
trimmed, and it must not extend downward beyond the lip line of the upper lip or
sideways beyond a vertical line drawn upward from the corner of the mouth. Beards are
prohibited except as prescribed by a physician for medical reasons. When a physician
prescribes a patient not shave, the beard is kept trimmed symmetrically so it does not
protrude more than one quarter inch from the face.


        Male personnel will not wear wigs and hairpieces while in uniform except for
cosmetic reasons to cover natural baldness or physical disfigurement. When worn, they
will confirm to the aforementioned policies of hair grooming.

                                      Drill Teams
       The drill team is one of the most integral parts to the corps. Cadets on the drill
team are regarded as the most disciplined cadets in the corps. The Drill Team attends a
competition held annually.

5-1: Special Teams

    When cadets sign up for drill, they are automatically placed on the inspection team.
Cadets wishing to help the team by getting uniform items accounted for among other
things may become part of the logistics personnel, but it is not recommended that they
sign up on any other team besides inspection.

   Regulation (all teams required to perform in competition)
     Inspection – consists of every cadet on the team. All cadets will wear the service
       dress uniform and perform an open ranks inspection.
     Regulation – cadets perform a marching routine specific to the drill location.
   Color Guard – consists of four cadets: two with rifles, one with the unit flag, and one
    with the American flag.
   Exhibition (one team is required to perform in competition)
     Rifle Team (Armed Exhibition)
     Unarmed Exhibition

5-2:   Practice

        Drill Team and Color Guard practice begins in Sep and ends after the Florida
State competition. At the beginning of the season, the practices run Tuesday – Thursday
from 1540-1700. Towards the end of the season, the practices may run from 1540-1730.
All cadets will remain at practice until the Honor Guard Commander dismisses them. If a
cadet plans to miss practice, he/she must submit a note signed by a parent or guardian to
his/her commander or one of the instructors. All attendance policies are outlined in the
Honor Guard Agreement signed by all members and their parents/guardians.

       The Drill Team is treated like any other school-sponsored sports team. No more
than one failing grade is admissible. If grades fall below standards, cadets are put on
probation and cannot practice until grades are acceptable. Again, all academic standards
and expectations are outlined in the Honor Guard Agreement. If you want to be on
another school team such as track or soccer, SASI/ASI approval is required. Drill Team
members will also receive a varsity letter, or pin as appropriate.
