ROTC / JROTC / NSC Award

Each year Veteran of Foreign Wars Post 1760 participates in presenting students the ‘Veterans of Foreign Wars’ award in their perspective school programs. For each award winner an officer from Post 1760 will attend the award ceremony to present the award to the cadet/midshipman recipient. Our post is also open to participating with any JROTC, ROTC and Naval Sea Cadet programs in the east valley here in Phoenix and we encourage all educational institutions to contact our office for more information for our participating in these award programs.
