I have been instructing JROTC for eight years. The first two years of instructing occurred in Ashburn, GA, which was a real challenge for me in the beginning. After two years of teaching there, I married and relocated to North Charleston. At Garrett in the beginning, it was a real challenge because I did not arrive until the third month of that current school year.
