Johnny Browning

MSG, (Ret) JROTC Instructor

AA degree, Information Technology, Keiser University

Currently seeking suitable Bachelors' program in Computer Science

I served in the US Army for twenty-two years before retiring and joining SMA as a JROTC instructor. My military service took me to Germany, South Korea, Sinai Peninsula--Egypt, Ft. Campell, KY, and Ft. Jackson, SC. During that service, I had two combat deployments to Iraq. During my service, I was in a multitude of units with different leadership positions, including Section Sergeant and Operations Sergeant Major, but the most enjoyable service was my three-year tour of duty as a Drill Instructor. 

Although different than being an Army Instructor in a JROTC program, the similarities are awesome; watching young people develop, grow, and I get to be a part of that transition.  

I absolutely love being an JROTC Instructor, and I feel very fortunate that I am a part of the Sarasota Military Academy.
