I need some help with this one. I don’t want to get this one wrong and give bad information.… there’s another thread on the AFA section (see this link) that the OP was asking about JROTC and the nomination portion came up and I made a statement to correct someone and they corrected me so now I’m confused. I didn’t want to highjack the thread so I created a new one in the nomination section. Basically it’s around needing Distinguished Unit to get a nomination for that branch. I looked for the code and this is what I’ve found. Title 32 - National Defense > CHAPTER VII--DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE > PART 901--APPOINTMENT TO THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ACADEMY > § 901.12 Honor military and honor Naval schools—AFROTC and AFJROTC category. (2) Five students from each high school AFJROTC detachment may be nominated to compete for the vacancies allocated to this category. (i) Students must apply for nomination to the Aerospace Science Instructor, who must certify that the applicants meet the basic eligibility requirements and have or will have successfully completed the prescribed AFJROTC program by the end of the school year. (ii) The Aerospace Science Instructor uses the nomination forms provided by the Academy to recommend for nomination the five best-qualified applicants to the principal of the high school in which the AFJROTC detachment is established. (iii) Nominations from the principal of the high school are submitted directly to the Academy by January 31 of the entry year. It doesn’t mention anything about having to have Distinguished Unit to be eligible to this category. For example the way I understand this is that if you’re in AF JROTC you can nominated in this category for the AFA. I’ve read on the forum that you need Distinguished Unit to apply to a different branch than your JROTC for example AF JROTC applying to the USMA will need Distinguished Unit. Is this correct? Or do you need Distinguished Unit to get the same branch nomination and you need Distinguished Unit with Merit/Honor to get a different branch nomination? Like I said in the beginning I don’t want to give bad info so if someone can set me straight and show me where it’s written up I would greatly appreciate it.
