The Pass in Review is a long-standing military tradition that began as a way for a newly assigned commander to inspect his troops. About 1,200 Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) participants from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard branches will march in formation and perform a series of maneuvers following the orders of their battalion commanders.
School board members will join Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho, Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) Cadets, parents and community members at the ceremony on Feb. 9, from 10:30 a.m. – noon at Tropical Park Stadium, 7900 SW 40th St. in Miami.
The JROTC is a federal program sponsored by the United States Armed Forces in high schools and also in some middle schools across the United States and United States military bases across the world. The JROTC experience provides meaningful leadership instruction of benefit to the student and of value to the Armed Forces.
