- Tomorrow's Leaders - We had cadets from the University of Georgia's ROTC program visit Team JSTARS, Monday. They had a chance to get great information about the roles and missions from very knowledgeable JSTARS personnel. In addition, they were allowed to up close and personal with one of our very own E-8C JSTARS aircraft. Perhaps we'll see these cadets join our ranks in the near future ...
