My parents did the same thing OP. And now I'm in JROTC and I'm one of the best and I put it in their face about how awesome I am and that they were wrong. I promise it gets better once they realize you made it.

Jrotc isn't exactly boot camp, but its a start. But you shouldn't brag about being in ROTC and being great, because you're a part as a unit, and your unit is as strong as the weakest member in it

correct me if I'm wrong but isent rotc for officers training? and isent competition encouraged in officers training? at least it is so here, you can go one of two very distinct paths with the army where I'm from, one is called short term service which is typically three to five years after which you can elect to go on with the military career however in those 3-5 years you may never advance past platoon leader, the other is long term service which is basically officers who are considering a military career, they sign up from 5 to seven and then usually nearly always elect to stay more as members have usually reached officer or flag officer status, that's what I understood rotc to be and officers are generally encouraged to outperform other cadets but again It may be different where you are.

Wow that stinks OP. if it's really what you want to do, don't let them stop you! #1 might be right, maybe they are worried, and hope it isn't true, but they should've just said that. I appreciate that you want to serve OP! Best of luck, and thank you!
