Commander’s Welcome

Commander Lt Col Skarda

Welcome to the home of Air Force ROTC Detachment 535, based out of Syracuse University in Syracuse, NY and host to 11 cross-town schools in the Upstate New York area.  The key to our success is simple and can be identified easily in the three core values of the Air Force: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.  The goal of Detachment 535 is to train cadets and to develop leaders who will excel in the US Air Force and US Space Force and go on to positively impact their squadrons and the world.
