the top 10 percent of the Nation. This status is a reflection of each 
cadet's hard work and the investment of the parents, the instructors, 
and the community in the Junior ROTC program.
  As a member of the Air Force Reserve, I have great admiration for the 
young people involved in Junior ROTC in Georgia and throughout the 
United States. This important program instills the values of 
citizenship, service, and personal responsibility in the next 
generation of leaders.
  I anticipate great things from these young men and women in the 
future, and I wish the Dawson County High School Junior ROTC program 
continued success.
