BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On July 31 Rear Admiral Wayne Justice, USCG retired, Treasurer of the Cape Canaveral Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America Good Deeds Foundation, presented a symbolic check for $13,500 to nine JROTC Instructors attending the “en mask” pre-school reopening JROTC planning meeting at Rockledge High School.

Each of their units received a $900 check.

The Good Deeds Foundation will distribute the remaining six JROTC checks before school reopens on August 24, a delay caused by COVID-19.

In addition, checks for $550 will be presented to two Sea Cadet and two Civil Air Patrol units which also dedicate their programs to guiding young people, from a variety of schools, to learn about military matters, leadership, discipline, and what it takes to be a good citizen.

For many years the Military Officers Association of America Good Deeds Foundation has provided support to the 15 Brevard JROTC units representing the Army (8), Navy (2), Air Force (4), and 1 Marine Corps Unit at Palm Bay.

There are many expenses involved in a school’s running a successful JROTC Program. Fundraising is crucial to ensure that all events, awards, support to cadets in need, and many other costs, not covered by the schools or Service Branches, are met.

Last year’s fundraising was the most successful in the Good Deeds Foundation’s six-year history, enabling their generous donations to the JROTC Units.
