Black Hawk Down

The film takes place during October 1993 when the U.S. sent a special forces team into Somalia to destabilize the government and bring food and aid to the starving people. Using Black Hawk helicopters to insert the soldiers onto the ground, an unprecedented attack by Somalian forces brings down two of the helicopters. From there, the U.S. soldiers must struggle to regain their advantage while enduring heavy gunfire and losses. A true glimpse into the mission that went horribly wrong for many reasons.

Question: In the scene where Eversmann is briefing his team ready for them to gear up and go out, he says something like "sorry ass JROTC". What does JROTC stand for? (00:26:00)

Chosen answer: Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp. You have JROTC in high school and ROTC in college. It's a way of getting a commission in the military early on. It's often not looked fondly upon by officers who came up through the enlisted ranks first.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps is an elective course offered by many high schools, and taught by retired Commissioned and Warrant Officers, and retired senior noncommissioned officers. They do learn military drill and ceremonies, but not tactics and techniques of combat. The goal is to produce a well-rounded high school graduate who can enlist in the military at a higher pay grade. The joke, or derision, has to do with JROTC cadets who can March and salute.
