    I just found this site today. What a God-send.

    Can anyone tell me the dates for AFROTC Field Training if my son does get a slot?

    Where is it held each summer?

    Thanks,

    A novice at this

    It is held at Maxwell AF, Alabama. They are thought for just @30 days. Part of it is classroom and part of it is in the woods camping!

    The 1st class will go in @ June 1st and the last will come in at the latter part of July, either way they all will get to endure 95% humidity and 95 degree days.:eek:

    When he gets selected he will not be given the date, that will come a little later. He will 1st have to get his bag drag done, and his medical exam (shots/short physical). If you have multiple airports by you that he can fly out of, he will be asked to rank them in order preference, no guarantee he will get number 1, but is given the choices.

    I believe DS found out in April his report date.

    Another question...is the travel funded from home of record or the Detachment? A big difference for us since we live in Europe.

    They will fly you from wherever you tell then you are going to be at that time. My husband had a cadet fly from Hawaii a couple years back
