Air Force ROTC is not an easy program. There’s no reason to sugarcoat it otherwise. But you’re looking at this website right now, regardless of how hard you think it might be, for one reason. You want to serve your country. That’s an incredibly admirable desire and it should be at the forefront of your mind every early morning that you get up for PT or Lead Lab. Unfortunately, your commission date and entrance to active duty is probably four years away, at the least. Luckily, we’ve got another opportunity for you to satisfy that hunger to serve while you’re here at Syracuse University.
Arnold Air Society is the only Air Force Association and Air Force ROTC associated extracurricular recognized across the country. Where there is an Air Force ROTC Detachment, there is an Arnold Air Society Squadron. We are a professional, honorary service organization advocating the support of aerospace power. With over 1,000 active cadet members from across the country, Arnold Air Society is an organization like no other. We work constantly to both serve the university area and participate in large, nationwide service projects. In joining, you will both be joining a family of cadets and a tradition of excellence here at SU and taking yet another huge step on your path to commissioning. If you want to serve your country, start by serving those in the local community through an organization dedicated to the task.
