FISC Puget Sound visits local NJROTC.
FISC Puget Sound Commanding Officer Capt. James R. Dolan and Command Master Chief (SS/NAC/FMF) Michael J. Fasano visited cadets from the Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) at Bremerton High School.
Dolan was a guest inspector for the unit and conducted a personnel inspection for 10 students. He then had an opportunity to speak with the unit, at which time he spoke of the Navy's core values and how they can be applied to every day life.
"Young folks like these are a true future of the United States. It's a great honor to be here to talk to them and give them my impressions on heroes, leadership and core values, and what it may mean to them," said Dolan.
Students also had an opportunity to ask Dolan and Fasano questions in regards to their careers and what life is like in the Navy.
For one student, Dolan's speech was a reminder of how he can live his life in a better way, while being a role model for others.
"The captain's speech reminded me of how I should live my life, try to be a hero to others, to put other people above yourself," said Keith Trim, a senior and a cadet commanding officer. "The things like what he said are what the junior classmen needed to hear. We are all about putting the unit above yourself and being a part of something greater than yourself, so they needed that kind of lesson to be taught to them."
The NJROTC program at Bremerton High School was established in 1982. Approximately 10 percent of the student population participates in the program. Bremerton High School NJROTC program is led by retired Lt. Cmdr. Doug Cook and retired Marine Master Sgt. Janice Brooks, who are both naval science instructors at the school.
