NOTE:Project YANO has received copy of a memorandum, dated Oct. 6, 2008,  rescinding Policy Memorandum #50. It is signed by Maj. Gen. W. Montague Winfield, Commander of the U.S. Army Cadet Command. It is important to note that for years prior to the issuance of Memorandum #50, and during the nine years it was in effect, proponents of JROTC continuously claimed it was not a recruiting program. Memorandum #50 was not, in fact, the only proof of JROTC's recruiting function. For example, DoD officials have repeatedly boasted of its success as a recruiting tool in testimony given to Congress. The rescission of Memorandum #50 does not change this.
