University AFROTC: Groups
AFROTC presents cadets with opportunities to expand
their experience and participation levels through the support and
affiliation of cadet and student operated groups. These groups
include Honor Guard, Arnold Air Society, and the Booster Club. For
more information regarding any of the above mentioned groups please
email Detachment 650.
Honor Guard is a select group of Cadets who have chosen to learn
and perfect the ceremonial presentation of our nation's colors.
Modeled after the United States Air Force Honor Guard, our Honor
Guard has proudly represented our country, Air Force ROTC, and Ohio
University at parades, athletic events, and other special
ceremonies throughout the school year.
In the past we have been
called upon to provide a detail of cadets to present the colors for
all Ohio University sporting events, along with any other special
services the President of the University requests us to perform at.
We have also worked with many civic organizations in the Athens
area and professional sports teams such as the Cincinnati Reds and
Arnold Air Society
Air Society is a service organization within the Air Force Reserve
Officer Training Corps program. Since the founding of this
squadron in 1950, members have served thousands of hours in the
community and on campus. This relationship has helped not only the
surrounding area, but also to develop effective leadership skills
in the participating cadets.

Detachment 650 is proud to announce the recent creation of our very own drill team. Drill team is a group of cadets who work to produce a routine with pinpoint actions and marches all while using a mock M1 Garand rifle. These types of teams are found across the nation and compete with one another and also put on events and perform. This year, we are looking to set up a competition between The Ohio State University, Wright State, Kent State and others!
club is a non-ROTC affiliated organization that raises money
through various fundraisers for use by cadets in AFROTC Detachment
650. Booster club provides all of the funding necessary to carry
out all training, formal events, and other activities planned and
executed by cadets in Det 650. Some of the activities that we have
done or are in the process of doing this year include stadium
setup, teardown, ushering for home football games, working an
entire weekend at Cedar Point, and t-shirt sales just to name a
few. There are only two positions in booster club, the booster club
president (who is appointed by the previous booster club president)
and the vice president (who is appointed by the current president).
The booster club president and vice president are responsible for
setting up and coordinating fundraising events. However, the
majority of volunteer work for booster club comes from cadets
within AFROTC Detachment 650.
