UNH Air Force ROTC, Detachment 475
Can you assign a dollar value to leadership? To confidence? How about a brilliant future and a guaranteed career? One thing you can put a value on is a college scholarship. Beyond that, the benefits of Air Force ROTC are priceless.
Here at the University of New Hampshire, you will find not only a skilled Cadre and extraordinary cadet wing, but also a family. With roughly 50 cadets, you will be able to make friendships that last a lifetime and receive extensive hands-on training. Each semester is comprised of over a dozen exciting and challenging Leadership Labs, orchestrated by an outstanding cadet wing staff. For more information on Leadership Labs, see below or the tabs on the left.
Veterans Day Ceremony 2014
The UNH Army and Air Force ROTC cadets will be running the 2014 Veterans Day ceremony in front of Thompson Hall on Friday, November 7th. Cadets will be posted at the flagpole on vigil from 0700-1600, with a changing of the guard every 30 minutes.
During this lab, the cadets gained exposure from multiple members of the military about different jobs and what they consist of. A few in attendance included an Intelligence Officer, officers and enlisted in the logistics career field, a Cyber Officer, and an Air Force retiree, among others.
FTP Realization Night
This LLAB is geared towards preparing the sophomore cadets, who will be attending field training in the summer, for the challenges ahead. It is a tough lab including marching, warrior knowledge, and other skills essential to the success of our cadets.
New Boston Navigation Lab
The wing transited to New Boston Air Force Station to go through the scenario of finding a downed pilot. Sophomore cadets applied their knowledge of land navigation in order to complete the objective, while freshmen cadets learned the basics from their sophomore wingmen. Cadets participated in numerous Group Leadership Projects after navigating to the location of the crash site of a World War II era P-51 Mustang and concluded the lab with a barbeque and games.
