Silver and scarlet are the colors of the Army JROTC emblem. The torch perpetuates the history of the ROTC program in developing young students in body and mind. The torch reflects enlightenment through knowledge and indicates the program’s academic instruction. It further symbolizes the passing of military history from one generation of soldiers to another. The laurel wreath signifies achievement and leadership. The combined symbols denote the goals of the JROTC program to instill knowledge to cadets and stimulate them to achieve their leadership potential.

The shield of the ROTC program symbolizes the Army’s mission of national defense and is divided into quarters representing the four traditional military science courses in the senior ROTC curriculum. The sword signifies the courage, gallantry, and self-sacrifice intrinsic to the profession of arms. The lamp denotes the pursuit of knowledge, higher learning, and the partnership of Army ROTC with colleges and universities. The Greek helmet is symbolic of the ancient civilization concept of the warrior scholar. The motto “Leadership Excellence” expresses the ultimate responsibility of Army ROTC in the discharge of its duty to the nation.
