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!
