    but why ROTC at all? Is it some program a la Hitler Jugend or what?

    Restore Democracy! Denounce the GOP (George Orwell's Party)!

    •  If you get your information from Animal House (none)
      Then yes.  Otherwise it is a officer training program that serves in lieu of one of the military acadamies.  For me personally it was a means to afford to go to college since I was one of 9 kids in my family and had sufficient academic standings to earn a scholarship.  The vast majority of my classmates were solid people intent on serving their country and becoming educated.  We all served varying amounts of time, some have given their lives and some are still serving.
