Welcome to the Tuskegee University’s Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) program. AFROTC serves as the largest commissioning source for active duty officers. It provides students the opportunity to fulfill all the requirements necessary to become the Air Force’s next generation of leaders, in conjunction with pursuing their Bachelor of Science in any desired academic program at Tuskegee University. Although AFROTC is offered at various universities and colleges across the United States, what makes Detachment 015 at Tuskegee University special is the legacy it holds with the Tuskegee Airmen. “The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps (AAC), a precursor of the U.S. Air Force. Trained at the Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama, they flew more than 15,000 individual sorties in Europe and North Africa during World War II. Their impressive performance earned them more than 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and helped encourage the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces.”
The Tuskegee Airmen were the epitome of the Air Force core values of “Integrity First”
“Service Before Self” and “Excellence In All We Do.” Therefore, we strive to carry the
legacy so that the dream lives on through us and those to follow.
