Bellevue East Drill Team: Waterloo-2015
Welcome to the website for the Bellevue East Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps or AFJROTC. This site is intended for use by our cadets and their parents as a quick source of reference on upcoming corps events. Available for your use is information about our various teams and activities, accessible from the tabs above. No sensitive or personal data about our cadets is included, as we value the security of our program. While the web team is constantly working to keep the site up-to-date and functional, we aren't perfect. Any suggestions for content or improvement can be forwarded to our webmaster from the contact & RSVP tab.

1.) NE-021 Cadets will focus on improving their lowest letter grade for the 1st Quarter of the academic year. At least 50% of the cadets will raise their lowest grade a minimum of one letter grade by the end of the semester without allowing any of their other grades to fall.
2.) NE-021 Cadets will conduct a Cadet Recognition Program within our JROTC Corps. This effort is to provide a wider range of recognition of outstanding cadets who have excelled in areas such as service to the community both inside and outside their JROTC program, excellence in uniform wear, and leadership throughout the high school environment. The top 20 cadets who meet the established requirements in one of these areas will be awarded a red, white, and blue citation cord to be worn for 8 uniform inspections every quarter of the academic year.
3.) NE-021 will plan and execute a middle school recruiting program where groups of cadets will visit our school district's three middle schools during the lunch hours to promote JROTC participation. The cadets will use posters, videos, and art work that promote the missions and goals of the JROTC program. Cadets will also participate in our school's 9th grade orientation night to allow visiting 8th graders to learn about the program along with their parents to increase the potential for their enrollment in the JROTC program.
4.) NE-021 will conduct a safe driving campaign for one week to raise student awareness of distracted driving and the importance of 100% seat belt wear for both drivers and passengers caused by distracted driving and failure to wear a seatbelt.
5.) NE-021 will earn over 3,500 service hours in support of a broad range of community organizations and events. These organizations will include the Bellevue Offutt Kiwians, Offutt Air Force Base, Hillcrest Nursing Home, the American Veterans organization, the Eastern Nebraska Veteran's home, and many others. The community leaders of the city including our mayor are keenly aware of the many areas where our unit aids in the support of the citizens of our city and for it's selfless service to others.
6.) NE-021 cadets will work with our local American Veterans organization to support the Eastern Nebraska Veteran's Home. This facility is a major source of support in our community for the eligible veterans in our regions. We will work along side the Am Vets organization in recognition of their "Stand Down" event and individually as a Corps in support of these men and women who have served our nation. We will accumulate a minimum of 1,000 hours of service to this facility in various roles for the support of its residents.
