[QUOTE=Dobry wieczór]You don't have BDUs? That's funny, cuz the airforce units down here have BDUs.QUOTE]

Our program is the largest AF unit at about 850 students. (We have 4 Conl. rank cadets an over 10 Lt.Conl. rank cadets) Since BDU's must be bought at the school's expense, it would be a little costly to issue everyone a BDU. Besides that, we are more of a "community unit" than a "military unit." When we have occasions that would merit the wear of BDU's, we instead wear PT shirts and uniform pants.

Well, at the beggining of the school year, the only reason I jouned was to get out of gym. Now I have a great respect for the Air Force, and will most probablly get a scholarship through it.

Wow, 850 cadets? That is a lot. We only have 170 and the other schools have less. Do you have several Battalions, or is everyone part of the same unit?

I used to be in the Marine Corps JROTC in Fort Mill High School. I think that we had around 100 cadets in the entire program. I was in it for 2 years until I changed schools. They had an Air Force and Army JROTC, but I decided not to join it. Clemson has Army ROTC (and maybe Air Force), but again, I'm not in it. I had my fill of military life with the Marine JROTC. That does not mean I will get back into the military, it is just very highly unlikely that I will.

Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. JROTC is just a high school course and it doesn't have a obligation to join the military. Not everyone wants to join the service that's in JROTC.

We have one unit(sort of), one wing. We will(as of the 05-06 school year), however, have 3 squadrons (companys) that cover 7 flights (platoons).

This year, our 4th flight was twice as big as any others due to the fact that we have a second school that's soon to get their own ROTC unit coming for a half an hour. Next year, they (I'm a member of the extra school, so we) will have our own squadron and flight holding around 100 students. I'm being sent to leadership camp for the summer, and I applied for the position of squadron commander, so chances are that I'll have the position over our own squadron. When we're not at the main school, Squad commander will act as cadet commander, so It's a pretty nice position. By my third year, we should have our own unit of about 150-200.
