AFA WMC Supports ROTC Programs in the Dayton, OH Region

Air Force ROTC Detachment 643 is hosted out of Wright State University and serves the Greater Dayton Area. The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is a leadership program for college students interested in earning a commission and entering the active duty Air Force, as an officer, after completing a bachelor or masters degree. AFROTC instructs students in military heritage, the development of air and space power, military ethics, drill and ceremonies, communication, human relations, and leadership theory and techniques.   We also facilitate Cadet interaction with Wright-Patterson AFB military & civilian leadership, as well as experiential learning with myriad organizations across the region.
