JROTC Recognition Days

Each November, the Virginia War Memorial celebrates the service of high school students through our JROTC Recognition programs. Dates are announced by the beginning of each school year, and JROTC units from across the Commonwealth are invited to attend for free. Each program includes a full tour of the Virginia War Memorial, an inspiring guest speaker, and the chance to engage in a variety of service and leadership-building activities.

Programs run from 9:30am-noon on the announced dates. Lunches are NOT provided during JROTC Recognition Days, but groups are welcome to bring lunches or order food to the VWM and remain on site to eat following the program. If you plan to eat lunch at the Memorial, please include that in your registration.

Dates for the 2024 JROTC Recognition Days will be announced this Fall. Check back soon for more details!

If you have any questions about the JROTC Recognition Days or other programs for JROTC students, please contact Jim Triesler.
