6/23/2012 - JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- If you have a knack for teaching, exemplify Air Force standards and want to have a positive impact on the Air Force for years to come, you might be a perfect match for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps instructor duty, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.
Eligible first lieutenants, captains and majors interested in teaching tomorrow's leaders must indicate that interest on their statement of intent, via the Airman Development Plan. Fully-coordinated, approved application packages are due to Air Education and Training Command by Aug. 10, said Master Sgt. Curtis Reese, the AFPC Special Utilization Officer Assignments superintendent.
"Instructor impact is not just at the cadet level, but those cadets' future supervisors, peers and subordinates as well," he said. "It goes without saying that we need top-notch leaders and mentors to volunteer for this special duty."
Only line of the Air Force officers are eligible, Reese said, and lieutenants must have at least a year in grade and three years of commissioned service. All applicants must have four years on station by June 2013, or be in a mandatory move status during summer 2013 or have a January-May 2013 date eligible for return from overseas. Applicants must also have superior performance records and some universities require a master's degree, so applicants should note that before listing their duty preferences.
Before applicants can submit their packages to AETC, they must be released from their career field, Reese said. AFPC will notify each applicant of their release status by mid-July.

Many of the AFROTC instructors, including myself, have spent their fare share of time deployed overseas and have lead AD Airmen. If you had a poor experience in ROTC maybe you should step up and make sure future generations don't experience the let down you had at TX. Just saying.

If you get your most rewarding assignment watching Cadets play AF and step over each other to build cases for pilot training attendance then kudos it's one more position I don't get non-vol'd for. At the end of the day I prefer my time Commanding AD Airmen and my time deployed to all the smiles a college kid can give me.
