ROTC does teach leadership and discipline. I graduated from the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad, California after spending six years there. Class of 1972. In 1970 I was ready (and willing) to go to Vietnam. My brother went MIA that year and I had quite a change of mind. He never returned. I still carry positive traits in my daily life due to that training. It also changed my way of thinking about the world and my country.
