Phil Corbo

Hello, I'm Phil Corbo, Major, U.S. Army (Retired) the Senior Army Instructor (SAI) for Magna Vista's JROTC program. This is my eighth year teaching JROTC at Magna Vista High School.  Prior to my arrival at MVHS I was the SAI for Massanutten Military Academy (MMA) for 3 years.

I retired from the Army after serving 22 years of service in September 2006.

I am a native of Bridgewater, N.J. and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the Virginia Military Institute. I hold a Master of Science degree in Educational Leadership from Mississippi State University in 1997. I received my Virginia Technical Professional License for JROTC Instruction and look forward to working with the cadets and parents of Magna Vista High School.

My interests range from working on old cars, to target shooting, to cooking and to reading about U.S. History. I live in Martinsville with my dogs, “George”and "Hank".

My hope is to challenge all our cadets to fulfill their dreams and have fun while doing so. My various duty assignments while in the army (Hawaii, Korea, Saudi Arabia/Iraq,) have shown me that we can learn from everyone and it my sincere hope that through JROTC, our students will seek such knowledge.
