The Western Army JROTC ‘Pioneer’ battalion of Anaheim, California had their J.P.A. inspection on 13 April and received a perfect score of 100%. Under the leadership of LTC. Jerry Pearce (R) and MSG. Dan Gastelum (R). We have a great group of Cadets that have been working with each other and building bonds that go beyond school and the JROTC program. The Cadets spent long hours preparing for the J.P.A. and brought their game faces on 13 April, 2023. Their goal was to maintain their Distinguished Unit star and they exceeded that goal by achieving a Perfect 100.
