Chain of Command

The Quabbin NJROTC unit has a “social ladder” in which cadets will report to. This is the upper echelon of that social ladder,— the Chain of Command— inclusive of staff, assistants, and company personnel. Squad leaders will be found under the “Chain of Command” button. The “Team Commanders” button lists our teams and their commanders. More information on each team can be found under the “Operations” tab.

 
 

Promotion Matrix

The Promotion Matrix is an up- to- date form that tells the cadets everything they have done to work towards their next promotion. In order to find a certain cadet/ change which matrix you’re looking at, click the tabs at the bottom of your screen.
