Student Soars With Air Force JR ROTC

Great article about Jordan Testi, a high school senior with Down syndrome, who is a dedicated cadet with his school's Air Force JR ROTC program.

When talking about Jordan's success, his JR ROTC leader, MSgt Johnny Hillary said, "Jordan made it happen. Everyone has needs. I don't see him as different from anyone else."

"Everyone has needs."

Loved that quote. So true.

It's all about giving someone a chance; a chance to do something they want to do. A chance to try.

A chance to be successful.

Isn't that wonderful? I think it's great that people and institutions have learned to look at people as people first and not prejudge abilities. At least some people have and more will.
