Adventures in Leadership: A Text for U.S. Marine Corps Junior ROTC.
Marine Corps Development and Education Command, Quantico, VA.
The textbook is designed to assist young men and women at selected high schools and academies where the program is available in gaining knowledge of the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC). As part of the JROTC curriculum, it helps participating cadets develop traits and attitudes that contribute to excellence in every area of life. The text is divided into four major parts. Part One, Military Orientation and Organization, presents objectives of JROTC, the heritage of the Marine Corps (uniforms, flags, sayings and expressions, and major posts and stations), history of the Corps, and provisions for national security. Part Two deals with elements of leadership (attitude, discipline, positive thinking, enthusiasm, moral aspects, leadership style, and goals). Profiles of famous leaders are included and the role of the noncommissioned officer is described. Military drill and physical fitness are detailed in Part Three. Marksmanship and the history and use of Marine weapons are discussed in Part Four. A brief bibliography of suggested readings is found at the conclusion of each part. (Author/MS)
