6/18/2012 - JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Eligible line of the Air Force lieutenant colonels and lieutenant colonel-selects interested in command opportunities can apply for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps detachment openings, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.
Applicants must update their Airman Development Plan and statement of intent by June 18 to indicate their interest in summer 2013 AFROTC command opportunities, said Master Sgt. Curtis Reese, the AFPC special utilization officer assignments superintendent. Application packages are due to Air Education and Training Command by Aug. 1.
"Airmen should not submit an application package, though, until we let them know that they are released to compete," said Reese.
Applicants must have at least two years of retainability by Aug. 1, and three years time-on-station by June 2013 (or be in a must-move status next summer or have a date eligible to return from overseas between January and May 2013). Applicants must also have their master's degree and a superior performance record.
"Detachment commanders are the first Air Force leaders most ROTC cadets will meet," said Reese. "They will help mold future Air Force leaders at a critical time in their education and development, so it is essential that committed, focused members apply for this opportunity."
