Fully instituted in September 1946, Farrington’s JROTC program continues to accomplish its mission:
“To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens,”
and has benefited over 27,000 cadets. During the 1950s and 1960s Farrington’s two-year mandatory JROTC program was called the “Longest Brown Line” as it was the largest program in the nation, boasting regimental-sized units with over 1,500 cadets annually.
Today our program is one of 25 public and 2 private high school programs in Hawaii. Our battalion of over 100 cadets, which is one of the most active student organizations at Farrington, includes a battalion command and staff, a color guard, two companies: Alpha, Bravo, & Charlie Company, special elements like the Special Forces Team, drill teams and the Dole & Kalakaua Middle School Mentors.
Activities include Four Drill Competitions, Parades, Service with Adult Friends for Youth, Letters to Soldiers in Iraq, and the Campbell Physical Fitness Competition, Advanced Training Test, Military Ball, Advanced and JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge (AJCLC/JCLC), Waianae Adventure Challenge (WAC), Governor’s Review, Kalaheo Basketball Challenge, JROTC Organizational Day as well as many social “team building” activities like our Christmas Party.
