    JRROTC in Solano County isn't producing enough officers. Most of those kids will never be commissioned. My son reported that one of them was caught smoking pot in Vanden's restroom. The cirriculum needs to be revamped and beefed up to properly prepare prospective Military Officers for their careers. The first thing these kids need to learn is that the US has been embroiled in a conflict on average every 10 years and future outcomes are not assured or guaranteed.
