The earliest evidence of a Military Science Program at Grossmont High School is a small photograph in the 1948 year book El Recuerdo. The 1950 yearbook first featured the Military Science Program, called the California Cadet Corps. According to the yearbook, “The California Cadet Corps gives high school boys courses in military training and tactics. In addition to their training at school and camps, these uniformed Foothillers regulated traffic and guarded at football and basketball games and at school dances.” The program continued until 1971 when it ended, due to the controversy over the Vietnam War.
