Commander’s Welcome

The Air Force ROTC program is a great way to earn a commission in the United States Air Force. I think you will find that our program is both a challenging and rewarding experience.  Cadets must successfully earn a bachelors degree before we can commission them as second lieutenants, therefore we stress academic excellence throughout our cadet’s college tenure.  This focus also requires them to balance tough academic demands with corps activities and their personal lives. Time management, an unwavering desire to succeed, and adhering to our core values of “Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence In All We Do” are definite keys to your success.

As the Commander, I make the following commitment to our cadet corps to fulfill our mission of commissioning the best Air Force leaders and citizens of character, dedicated to serving the nation:

• Training will be tough, but rewarding and you will gain lifelong friends.

• Our policies, expectations and actions will be fair and consistent.

• Our graduates will be fully prepared to serve as Air Force officers.


If you are interested in joining us and upholding the finest traditions of the Air Force and the Na Koa Lani of Air Force ROTC Detachment 175 or just have questions, please don’t hesitate to email and/or call us at afrotc@hawaii.edu or (808) 956-7734.
