Good Morning Det 075, below is an awesome opportunity for an AS300 (rising 400) or higher this upcoming summer.
- The US Air Force Academy is hosting the 2015 ESET Program and invites the AFROTC cadets to participate in the program. Each detachment is authorized to send one The cadet must be an AS300 (i.e., a rising AS400) or above to participate in the program. Due to the nature of the training slots, there will be no trading of slots to other Dets. If a Det’s nominee is unable to attend, for whatever reason, they will not be replaced with another cadet. Note: HQ AFROTC will fund travel costs. Food costs, at USAFA, will be funded as well. USAFA provides billeting which will entail field conditions for part of the training. The cadet will be expected to pay for food on the travel days; no per diem is authorized.

Session 1: 30 May – 9 Jun

- The ESET Mission is to provide cadets the basic skills and confidence necessary to operate and survive in an expeditionary environment while developing leaders of character, instilling the “warrior ethos” and imbedding the Air Force core values.
