Detachment 370 is excited to announce that 22 cadets will be visiting Washington DC during the third week of March 2017. They will be touring Andrews AFB, getting an insider’s look into the NSA, and connecting with state legislators in just 2.5 days. We would like to invite you to meet with current AFROTC cadets to offer insights into your Air Force careers. We are looking for alumni who will provide mentorship, detailing your tips and tricks to being a successful AF officer and outlining opportunities that await them after graduation.
This is posting is a culmination of one AS300 student's experience as a third year Det 370 Air Force ROTC cadet.
Field Training is a twenty-one-day event at Maxwell Air Force Base (AFB), Alabama that evaluates AFROTC cadet’s potential to become officers. Although is both physically and mentally challenging, you feel an overwhelming sense of pride and accomplishment upon receiving your “prop and wings” at graduation. I would say that most cadets, after finishing Field Training, are excited to begin a new year of Air Force ROTC.
Cadet Joseph and Cadet Mei were awarded AFROTC scholarships. The scholarship pays up to the equivalent of a public school's in-state rate and a book allowance. That means that tuition and fees are covered for UMass Amherst students! To learn more about AFROTC In-College Scholarship Program, please go to this link. Congratulations Cadet Joseph and Cadet Mei!
