What does NJ-781st AFJROTC mean?

Our Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) unit was established in 1978.  We were the first AFJROTC unit established in the state of NJ that particular year.  Hence, NJ-781st is our unit designation.

AFJROTC is an elective course whose mission is to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community.  AFJROTC is a citizenship and leadership program that complies with Air Force and national/NJ education standards.  The bulk of the program is leadership and aerospace academics, drill and once a week physical training.  Additionally, cadets are required to wear the blue AFJROTC uniform one day per week most weeks of the school year while meeting Air Force grooming standards during uniform days. Uniforms are issued at no cost, and there is no military obligation for being a part of the AFJROTC program!

Review the links below as well as our unit master calendar for more details regarding the coming school year.  Contact CMSgt Bouchee or Lt Col Schwartz at 856-663-8006, ext. 1118 or if any questions.

Wall of Honor
Wall of Honor

The Wall of Honor is a program that will honor all those students that graduated from Cherry Hill High School West only. They can be serving in any branch of the Armed Forces, including Coast Guard. Also those that served with an honorable discharge (DD Form 214) due to separation or retirement. This program is for those that are serving or served on active duty, Reserve, or Guard. We will need an 8 X 10 photo of the member in any combination of military uniform. Please make sure to put the service member's name, year they graduated from West, and branch of service on the back of the picture. Please contact SMSgt Bender or Lt Col Schwartz with any questions or concerns
