    Hi! I'm a high school senior waiting to hear back from the NROTC boards about a scholarship. If, by chance, I do get it, is there anything special we get to wear at our high school graduation? For example, my friend who graduated two years ago was enlisting in the Marine Corps and left for bootcamp not that long after graduation. He got a robe (or sash, I can't remember for sure) to wear, and I didn't know if that was just for enlisted people, or ROTC people as well?
    Thanks!

    I believe that is school specific for recognizing those that are planning to serve. DS wore Red, White, and Blue Cords with his robe for NROTC. Check with your school's Guidance department.

    DS did not get the scholarship either. He joined as a College Programmer. It should not be about the money, but rather about your commitment to serve and the High School recognizing that.
