Welcome Back! 

Welcome back NJROTC cadets to a new and exciting 2017/2018 school year.  This year based on your feedback, we are going to do a few more exciting events.  First, we plan to have a pot luck with cadets and parents to meet our great staff.  This will also provide an opportunity for the instructors to talk briefly about our program.  We also are planning on teaching riflery during the first semester.  We have several exciting speakers interested in sharing their life experiences with you.  We will be sending monthly newsletters out to you to ensure everyone is well informed on current and future NJROTC events.  Your staff is motivated and excited about making this an exciting time in your life.

Gunny and I thank you for joining us this year and please feel free to join us daily for lunch in the NJROTC classroom.

Have a great year,

Cdr Butler

December, 2017

Dear CHS NJROTC cadets, families, and readers,

 

We are weeks away from the end of the year and with it comes many considerable changes. On December 14 we had our Change of Command. The cadets who help run this unit in every aspect of the word get relieved from their post and help teach another cadet how to do their job. During the ceremony, many families came to congratulate those who have stepped up to help make the unit better.

 

Congratulations to the following Cadets:

Senior Cadet Advisor: c/LCDR Hanna Fitzgerald

Cadet Commanding Officer: c/LCDR Victoria Lopez

Cadet Executive Officer: c/LT Victoria Slaven

Finals for every class will be on Dec. 20-21. Please make sure that you study for the final. Winter break will start on the 22nd and classes will resume January 8th. After the break we will have many events going on. Look for the Chugiak Drill team at our first meet of the season on January 20th at Eagle River High School at 0800. Cheer on your fellow cadets as we strive for success. The next meet after that will be February 10th at Colony High School at 0630. The teams have worked very hard to learn and perfect the many drill sequences and we trust in them that they will win.

Another thing to look out for is the upcoming arrival of the Area Manager Inspection. Every year, the unit gets inspected as a whole and it is a big event. It takes the unit months in advance to prepare for this. Once we come back from winter break we will be extremely busy with preparations for AMI, and this includes our cadets. On Feb. 17th the unit will have a company formation at the Chugiak High School gym starting at 0800 and will end at 1200. Attendance is mandatory and it will be graded.

 

Happy Birthday to the following Cadets:

c/SR Alyson Ward          c/SR Walton Buck          c/SR Jeremiah Slaven          c/PO3 Ethen Phillips

c/SN Justin Haltom       c/PO3 David Cashman

c/PO3 David Cashman    c/PO3 Jon Duffield               

 

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year  from CDR Butler and GySgt Dervaes.

Enjoy your time away from school and be safe on the roads.

 

See you next year!

~CDR

 

The unit wishes all of you a happy and safe holiday!

 

Sincerely,

PAO, c/ENS Skyler Arens

Dear CHS NJROTC cadets, families, and readers,

           

            This month has been one of internal growth for the unit. While we have not been very active out in the community, many important things have happened in the unit. First, the much anticipated drill season has started. Our drill team is what our unit is known for. We have many dedicated cadets who stay after school to learn and to teach and it is always a great time for the cadets. It is not too late to join if you are interested in being on the team.

Second, we have had some guest speakers and inspectors this week. We would like to give special thanks to the Army National Guard for inspecting the unit as well as speaking to us about future careers in the service. We would like to extend personal thank you’s to the following individuals for taking time out of their busy day to visit and talk with us, SSG Funk, SGT Warner, LT Cason, and LTC Hernson. We would also like to thank the Naval Academy for stopping by and speaking to our students before Thanksgiving break.

 

Congratulation to the following cadets who promoted:

 

c/SN Justin Haltom                           c/SN David Johnson                  c/SA Kaitlynn Taylor    c/PO3 Angie Shapoval

c/SA Lydia Ekstrom 

Happy birthday to the following Cadets:

Dear CHS NJROTC cadets, families, and readers,

We have reached the end of the first quarter of school. This month has shown the community the amazing work ethic and dependability of our cadets. The unit helped the Eagle River Boys & Girls club with installing new flooring and helped the community by volunteering at the Beach Lake Chalet’s own Boo at the Beach event on. The unit also presented a color guard on Oct. 16th for ERHS and CHS’s joint-Junior/Senior Night. We want to give a special thank you to the cadets involved in that night's color guard.

While we are thankful for all the cadets volunteering and having fun at such events, we would also like to remind everyone that when you are helping out at any event, you are representing the unit. So please, have fun but be respectful.

In other news, we have had been involved in some JROTC events over the past month: The unit participated in Raiders Decathlon on Oct. 7. The unit also  participated in the JROTC WACKO. That event allows for all of the JROTC in the Anchorage and Wasilla area to get together and compete against one another. We ended up going home with the first place trophy in the Picnic Table Relay! Thank you to all the cadets who showed up for the event. On Oct. 27, the unit hosted our Annual Harvest Moon Ball. This dance is put together by the cadets, for the cadets and  is hosted by  the ER Elks Club. Over sixty kids showed up to the dance this year, with some guests included. It included a costume contest and a carved pumpkin contest which was won by 2nd platoon. Don’t worry, if you missed it, we have the Harvest Moon Ball every year at the end of October. Parents are always welcome to attend this event.

This month, the cadets started taking written exams that will occur each week for the rest of the year. The exams have ten random questions pertaining to either the Chain of Command or Orders to the Sentry. Please study and remember that spelling and punctuation count. The unit has also had many guest inspectors this month. We want to give a special thank you to  Army  CPT Schwartz and SSG Morse, and to Ssgt Kear from the Marine Corps for taking the time to inspect our unit.

Upcoming meetings:

Senior Trip meetings for the seniors planning on going on the CHS NJROTC Hawaii trip please listen up for meeting date and time. If you have a question about the senior trip, please contact GySgt Dervaes.

The first meeting for Drill team will be happening Tuesday, Nov. 7.This team is the pride of our unit. Not only does it help teach and refine the most fundamental part of JROTC, it helps cadets meet new people and get out of their comfort zone by giving them a chance to command and execute drill in front of their peers and other JROTC cadets. We really encourage NS1’s to come try out for the team. We hope to see many cadets there.

 

Happy Birthday to the following cadets:

c/SR Cheyenne Randall        c/LTJG Kao Yang        c/SR Keaton Torgerson       c/PO3 Carter Burpee c/SR Jared Heaston                c/SR Tristin Komok

CHS Mustang Company Monthly News September, 2017

 

Dear CHS NJROTC cadets, families, and readers,

 

We have successfully made it through the first month of school and we are happy to share that the unit have accomplished many positive thing over the course of both summer and school year so far. The cadets this year are eager  to help out the community and participate in many fun events that we host. One of the most noticeable event that we participated in this past summer was our annual JROTC summer camp. It allowed cadets to experience things that otherwise would not have been available to them. Such activities that the cadets participated in were the confidence course, the rappel tower, and a ride in a Black Hawk helicopter. We will be posting pictures on our unit Facebook page of the events.

Thank you to the following cadets who participated in JROTC Summer camp 2017.

c/SA Ryan Bush c/SN Otis Eads c/SA Brianna Jolly

c/SN Kaitlynn Jolly c/PO3 Jaden Knaak    c/SA Laila Williams

 

Three school sponsored events that you might have seen our cadets at this year have been the CHS Back to School night which occurred on Aug. 24,Homecoming game which was played on Sep. 15, and football concessions at every home football game. Back to school night was a success, many cadets volunteered their time and made it a wonderful experience for both the unit and those visiting the school. Football concessions are being done at every home game to raise money for the annual senior Hawaii trip. There will be more information about the senior trip down below. Our biggest accomplish yet has to be the Homecoming color guard and sword detail. The color guard and sword detail was well practiced and that practice showed when we took to the field to present the colors and homecoming court.

We want to give a special thank you to the all cadets who participated in the homecoming color guard and sword detail. The Commanding Officer of the sword detail was c/LT Victoria Lopez and the Commanding Officer of the color guard was c/SCPO Keoni Quilinderino.

Last week, we held a riflery class for all cadets. We are happy to report that it went well with no incidents. Another event that has started is the training for Raiders Decathlon. The event is over seen by our Training Officer, Taylor Levens. It is a fun PT event where Chugiak NJROTC competes against other JROTC units. It is a great event to get to know your fellow cadets, especially if you are an NS1. We would love to see more of our cadets participating in this event, practice is every day after school. If you are interested, please talk to Gunnery Sergeant Dervaes or the Training Officer. If you signed up for this event, please come to all afternoon practices.

This Thursday will be the first uniform day of the year. From now on we will be wearing our uniforms every Thursday or the rest of the year unless told otherwise. If you need new uniform items or are missing some, please come in at lunch or after school to exchange it or get a new one. Please note that if the uniform is lost or destroy the cadet who it was issued to will be fined. Another uniform that NJROTC cadets wear is the PT uniform every Friday. Please remember to bring and wear it so that you can get a grade.

Other upcoming event is the senior trip. Every year the unit sends our seniors down to Hawaii to learn about the military history for a week. We do various fundraising events throughout the year to make it easier for the cadets to go, but they are still required to pay for what the unit cannot cover. We will be having meetings soon to discuss more.

The cadet of the month for September is Michael Sorensen. He is promoted to the position of c/Seaman by the Cadet Staff for his commitment to the unit and all that he has done. All cadets who are chosen for cadet of the month are nominated and voted for by the Cadet Staff.

       Last but not least, the unit would like to congratulate the following cadets on promoting to their current rank.

c/SA Ryan Bush c/SN Otis Eads c/ENS Andrew Henegar c/SA Brianna Jolly

c/SM Kaitlynn Jolly          c/PO3 Jaden Knaak          c/SN David Stolworthy                    c/SN Aaron Joslin

c/SA Emily Parnell            c/SA Laila Williams         c/PO3 Jonathan Duffield                 c/PO3 Ethan Phillips

c/PO3 Damien Pinnow                     c/SN Michael Sorensen                       c/SA Aaidan Phlegar           

 

       These are the events that have happened and that are coming up. If you want more information, please contact Gunny or Commander. We will be posting a newsletter every month with new information about what happened and what is to come.

 

Sincerely,

c/PO3 Skyler Arens

Great job to the Cadet Staff, who organized and put on a great Welcome Aboard Social for the Cadets and Parents of Mustang Company last Friday! We received toms of positive feedback from the cadets and parents who attended. This week we had our second Uniform Inspection and we had close to 100% dressed-out, which is good, but not good enough. NS2s and above-make sure you are stressing the importance of Uniform Wear with your new Cadets! We also had a busy week for Cadets who voluntered at the Beach Lake Jamboree and Football Game Parking.

Tonight we will have Cadets volunteering as ushers during the CHS Improv Team's Suicide Awareness fubndraisng show and tomorrow Cadets will be helping the ER Boys and Girls Club put in new floors.

Have a great weekend Mustangs!

This week saw our first uniform inspection and we had 100% of NS1 cadets in uniform1 Awesome job guys! We also handed out plenty of awards and held several promotions (names to follow). 

The cadets also got to hear from the US Airforce and US Marine Corps, respectively, during visits from invited guest speakers from each Service.

Last week the cadets got to get thier hands on air rifles after having been instructed on the fundamentals of markmanship by CDR Butler. The cadets were very excited to send some lead down range! 

Lat week was also the homecoming game and homecoming assembly at CHS. Mustang NJROTC participated in a sword detail during the pep rally, a Color Guard before the game and a sword detail at the half-time show. Great job to C/LT Victoris Lopez for putting togther a great detail-their performance was outstanding. And thanks to C/LCDR Hanna Fitzgerald for organizing the Color Guard!

The Raider Decathlon is Oct 7th at Wasilla HS-We still need cadets to sign up! See C/ENS Taylor Levens of Gunny if you are interested.

Potluck is TONIGHT-Bring your assigned dish or the company will go hungry

 

Friday, 8 September 2017


Cant believe we are at the end of week 3 already, and what a great 3rd week it was. Plenty of cadets are earning that meritorious promotion by recruiting new cadets to the program-keep it up! Packets are due Monday and are worth 100 points. If you fail to turn it in by then, you will see a zero in Zangle on Monday. Your score will go to a 100 as soon as you get it in, but remember that the first platoon with 100% gets Pizza on us!

Some confusion on the packetrs needs cleared up: on the Area 13 Health Risk Screeing Questionaire you need a medical provider signature ONLY if you have YES answers to the questions concerning serious medical problems and need to be cleared for physical activity. Do this at your sporyts physical if you fall into this catagory!

Uniform alterations go on 13 September-ensure that you are here and that you have your shoes and pants! All other gear should already have gone home with you! If you still have gear on the range or in supply, make sure you take it with you on Monday. See C/LTJG Naomi Cryder or Gunny if you have questions or concerns.

RAIDER DECATHLON: We need a full team! 15 signed up and only 5 have shown up for practice! See C/ENS Taylor Levens or Gunny if you want to be on the team or have questions about it.

Have a great weekend!

Friday, 1 September 2017


What a great start to the new school year-The Cadet Staff and new Cadets are highly motivated and it shows! Events are starting to take place, so make sure you sign up and start earning those service hours back for the new school year. Remember to get that Cadet information packet in as soon as you can-the first platoon with 100% gets a pizza lunch on us! The packet is due on 11 September and is worth 100 points. If you already have a sports physical on file make a copy (from activities) and attatch it to the packet. Have a great long weekend and happy labor day!

 

Monday, 21 August 2017

Friday, 19 May 2017


Well, Its finally here-the last week of school is next week! Buckle down this weekend and prepare for finals. The NJROTC final will cover Chain of Command, Orders To The Sentry, and Navy Ranks and Rates. 

If you are staying in NJRTOC next year, you keep your uniform over the summer. If, when we prep for classes next semester you need larger/smaller sizes, we will take care of it then.

Remember that as we close the books on this school year, that all cadets have moved up a year and as such will be responsible for setting the example for the new Freshmen! If you have had a rough year, put it all behind you and start the year fresh with a clean slate. 

Have a great weekend and be safe out there!

Friday, 5 May 2017

Congratulations to Jonathan Parsons for promoting to C/SCPO (hard-rank)! C/SCPO Parsons has truly shown how to lead by example by working hard right up to his last days in the unit to promote. He has shown that keeping your head in the game until the game is over pays dividends to those who have the fortitude to do so!

Dont forget, if you are attending the dining-in tomorrow we are meeting at the ACF Church in ER @ 1700. Uniform is SDB with bowtie for males and necktab for females.

Welcome back, we hope everyone had a well-deserved and restful Spring Break. 

The week prior to break CHS NJROTC held its annual Area Manager's Inspection; the Unit performed extremely well during its uniform and department inspections and put on an impressive Pass-In-Review Ceremony for the Area 13 Manager, CAPT Wenceslao. The Cadet Staff demonstrated knowledge, professionalism, and showed competance under pressure, receiving high marks from CAPT Wenceslao.

Company Commander C/LCDR Briday Knittle sends the following message to Mustang Company:

Dear Company,

Congrats on finishing AMI! I'd like to thank all of you, and explain how proud I am to be the backbone of our company. At the evening phase, if you were listening (which I know you were), Captain Wenceslao reminded our guests that you all made me look good and I was just getting the recognition for it-He is 100% right!!! Instead of refering to myself as the "Top" I go with the "Backbone"; I make sure we stay in order and I'm everybody's #1 fan. Now you cadets are who make this Unit-This amazing Unit...Point is, my job is only special because of each and every one of you; without you I'd be running a one-woman show, and what's special about that?!

THANK YOU ALL, and lets finish this year strong!

-Briday Knittle

Veterans Day gives Americans the opportunity to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. veterans. However, most Americans confuse this holiday with Memorial Day, reports the Department of Veterans Affairs.
 
What's more, some Americans don't know why we commemorate our Veterans on Nov.11. It's imperative that all Americans know the history of Veterans Day so that we can honor our former servicemembers properly.
 
A Brief History of Veterans Day
Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was "dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day.'" As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.
 
 
In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress -- at the urging of the veterans service organizations -- amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.
In 1968, the Uniforms Holiday Bill ensured three-day weekends for federal employees by celebrating four national holidays on Mondays: Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Columbus Day. Under this bill, Veterans Day was moved to the fourth Monday of October. Many states did not agree with this decision and continued to celebrate the holiday on its original date. The first Veterans Day under the new law was observed with much confusion on Oct. 25, 1971.
 
Finally on September 20, 1975, President Gerald R. Ford signed a law which returned the annual observance of Veterans Day to its original date of Nov. 11, beginning in 1978. Since then, the Veterans Day holiday has been observed on Nov. 11.

Take the weekend to reflect and remember what you are celebrating as you enjoy your time off this Veterans Day Weekend. Be safe out there.

Friday, 14 Oct 2016


Another week down and the quarter is coming to a close. The quarter comes to a close on 21 Oct. Remember, the single most important thing you can do to keep your JROTC grade up is to wear your uniform.

Uniforms looked good on Thursday with almost everyone dressed out-keep up the good work! Biggest discrepancy was LACK OF KNOWLEDGE on Chain of Command and Orders to the Sentry. STUDY STUDY STUDY!

Next week we will be celebrating the 241st Birthday of the United States Navy!

Cadet Challenge has been cancelled due to lack of participation. We need more motivated cadets to try out for these events and be willing to put in the practice time!! We will do it right or we wont do it at all-Lets get busy training so we can bring home the trophies!

Be safe out there and have a great weekend. 

Wednesday,  5 October 2016


UNIFORM tomorrow! Make sure you come correct for inspection: Males make sure you have a good haircut and shave, Females make sure your hair is up according to the CFM and that your makeup and jewelry is worn according to regulation. Lets see 100% of cadets in uniform tomorrow!

FUND RAISING RIBBON (AWARD) will now be awarded to those cadets who participate in a minimum of 8 hours of Unit Fundraising. 

 

Friday, 30 September 2016

A "Job Well Done" goes out to the Unit and particularly the new NS1 Cadets for the percentage of Cadets in Uniform during our first inspection of the year. Not only did we see all but one Cadet in Uniform, but the Uniforms looked good across the board as well. 

Congratulations to 4th Platoon for beig the first platoon to have all thier packages in. As promised, they will be having pizza for lunch next Friday. If you dont have your package in yet, YOU ARE WRONG-Get them turned in ASAP. 

Have a great weekend, recharge and get ready to hit the ground running on Monday-Be safe out there!

 

Tuesday, 27 September 2016

Grades are in- if you still have an incomplete for your Cadet Information Packet, please see CDR Butler or GySgt Dervaes. Once your completed packet with sports physical has been turned in your grade will change to 100%.

The first weekly uniform inspection will be this Thusday, 29 September, so make sure you are ready! See your Platoon leadership with any questions and remember that your uniform grade is worth 40% of your overall grade-you will not pass Naval Science if you don't wear it!

Physical fitness competitions are ramping up and we need volunteers! Cadet Challange and Cadet WAKO are our next events. See your Platoon Leadership for details and sign up on the sign up board located on the Quarterdeck. 

So far this year we have seen outstanding volunteer effort from the Unit, particularly among the Naval Scinece One Cadets-keep up the good work!

Tuesday, 13 September

Thank you for your patience. We apologize for the pause in updates-we have been experiencing technical difficulties with the hosting service, which at this point should be resolved. 

It has been a busy first month for Mustang NJROTC as our cadets hit the ground running by getting involved in many activities here at CHS. Cadets have participated in Color Guards, Sword Details, Home Football Game Concessions Duty, Registration, and Back -To-School Night to name a few. Great job to all who have volunteered!

The Cadet Information Packet, which is worth an exam grade of 100 points was due on September 6th. Most platoons are nearing 100% completion but we need to step it up and get this done. Remember, an ASD school sports physical is part of the packet and if you have a solid appointment scheduled, just let your Platoon Commander or Instructor know. If you already have a physical on file in the CHS activities office we can use that one, just get a copy and staple it to the packet. As of today, 4th Platoon has all physicals in with minor discrepancies on packages and 3rd Platoon is right behind them, but only one will get the PIZZA. 

Uniform issue is almost complete and alterations will be on-site Friday the 16th to measure and mark Cadet uniforms for alteration. This does not cost the Cadet anything, just make sure you are here on Friday so that we can have everyone ready for our first uniform day, which will likely be held on 29 September.

All platoons are doing a great job of getting to know one another and this year's discipline level is the best we have seen in years-keep up the good work!

Congratulations to Mustang Company on an outstanding 2016 Area Manager's Inspection!

The inspection kicked off with a Unit personnel inspection at 0730 in the main gym. The Company average was an impressive 9.4 out of 10 and 37 cadets earned the exemplary appearance award for scoring a perfect 10 out of 10!

The second phase of the inspection started with a presentation by the cadet staff to the guest inspecting officer, CDR James Binniker of the US Coast Guard and continued with a thorough inspection of the Unit's departments and spaces. During this critical second phase of the inspection the Unit passed with flying colors and recieved accolades from the inspecting officer during his debrief at the end of the day.

The 3rd and final phase of the inspection was the Pass-In-Review Ceremony held in the main gym at CHS at 1800. The event had an impressive guest list, including the guest speaker, Brig Gen Laurie Hummel, ADJ GEN of the AK National Guard and Commissioner of the Department of Military and Veteran's affairs for the state of Alaska. The Unit put on an impressive show and saw second Platoon recieve the Honor Platoon Streamer as this year's AMI Honor Platoon. It is worth mentioning however, that 4th Platoon and 2nd tied for this honor with the tie-breaker putting 2nd platoon only .5 points apart form 4th! 

Great Job Mustang Company, get out there, be safe, and have a great Spring Break-You deserve it!
