encourages you to Remember Our Troops and Veterans!
If you serve or have served, Thank You!
The National Remember Our Troops Campaign is a 501(c)(3) military and veterans charity dedicated to remembering the service and sacrifice of all military servicemembers, all veterans and their families, supporting those in need and letting them know they are not forgotten.
NROTC is proactive combating major stress, PTSD and suicide among servicemembers and veterans.
NROTC provides recreational therapy for wounded troops and veterans, employment for unemployed veterans and emergency financial aid to veterans who are homeless or have fallen on hard times.
NROTC works to RAISE AWARENESS in local communities throughout our population, of military and veteran’s issues, and to provide ways for Americans to become involved in supporting our troops and veterans.
Thank You For Serving and if it applies… “Welcome Home”
Contrary to common belief, The Vietnam War was in fact the most important — and successful — campaign to defeat communism ever waged. Without the sacrifices made and the courage displayed by our military, the world might be a very different place today. In addition to the over 58,000 brave troops who were lost, there were “Officially” 350,000 U.S. casualties. There were “Actually” many more! Most of them still walk among us today. They did not even receive their much-deserved “Welcome Home”!… The long term and for years unrecognized effects of Agent Orange and PTSD still impact the lives of these surviving veterans and many of them are in need. Today there are an estimated 7,391,000 living veterans of The Vietnam War.
Known as The Forgotten War, (Another War To Defeat Communism), today there are 2,275,000 estimated living veterans of the Korean War. The National Remember Our Troops Campaign Remembers… our Korean War veterans and honors their service and sacrifice.
Known as the “Greatest Generation”, The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that one million US veterans of WWII – out of 16,112,566 who served during the war – are still alive. U.S. veterans of WWII will be alive into the future. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that 850 U.S. WWII veterans pass away per day. In 10 years, we’ll be down to less than 50,000.
NROTC remembers our WWII veterans as well as ALL Military Veterans including those who have served during other conflicts and peace-time, combat and non-combat, at home and overseas, up to the very present.
NROTC believes that all who serve and have served our beloved country are the “Greatest of Their Generation”.
We Salute All Of You!
Freedom Is Contagious!… While things may not be perfect in America, we are still the shining light of the world!… As the peoples of the former Soviet Union and its satellites won their freedom in 1989, so also today, people of an “internet enlightened” generation in other places around the world, (including those of the “Arab Spring” revolution), have ousted their dictatorial leaders. Today the world is full of trouble! Those who serve today and and who have served in the recent past are and have been involved in this global fight for freedom and opposition to tyranny, radical religious fanaticism and terrorism!… FREEDOM IS… (regardless of what some may say) WORTH FIGHTING FOR!
NROTC reminds you to look at our history from WWI to present and honor our nation’s sons and daughters who answered the call to defend countries they never knew and people they never met!
We just hope that all Americans, regardless of their political views, “Stand United” in supporting our troops, our veterans and military families”.
From the NROTC President:
Many of us still remember with disgust, how America disrespected our troops during the Vietnam War.
LET US VOW NEVER TO ALLOW THIS HAPPEN AGAIN!… I ASK YOU TO KEEP IN YOUR MIND AND IN YOUR PRAYERS… ALL THOSE LIVING AND LOST… WHO SERVED AND SACRIFICED… IN ALL WARS PAST AND PRESENT… FOR OUR GREAT NATION AND THE FREEDOMS WE HOLD SO DEAR!… TRY TO DO SOMETHING… ANYTHING… TO LET THOSE SERVING… AND THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED… KNOW THEY ARE APPRECIATED!
LET’S NOT HAVE ANOTHER GENERATION OF FORGOTTEN VETERANS LIKE WE DID AFTER VIETNAM!

About the acronym, NROTC:
We are aware of two. Ours and that of The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps. The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps has used the NROTC acronym since its founding in 1926. We have been using it for ten years. Many matching acronyms exist these days and to avoid any confusion we are always careful here on our website, printed material and any other media to always include our name, National Remember Our Troops Campaign, whenever using our acronym.
As the acronym NSA, is used by The National Security Agency, it is also used by The National Speakers Association, The National Sheriffs’ Association, The National Stuttering Association, The National Stroke Association, National Safety Associates, The National Scrabble Association, The National Scrapbooking Association, The National Smokejumper Association, The National Student Association, The National Steeplechase Association, The National Shipping Authority, The National Sports Academy etc.
We do acknowledge The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps and the great work they do. If you are looking for them and arrived here by mistake, please visit www.nrotc.navy.mil/
Looking back as we celebrate our tenth anniversary, we realize that perhaps we could have been a little more creative when naming our organization and we do apologize for any confusion we may have created. We do not mind being referred to as the other, the little or lesser-known NROTC.
