AF announces selection of 2018 AFROTC detachment commanders

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- The Air Force has selected 16 active duty and three Reserve officers as Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps detachment commanders to fill requirements at universities across the nation starting in summer 2018.

A selection board held in September 2017 reviewed 60 applications from lieutenant colonels and majors selected for promotion to lieutenant colonel who were interested in this highly sought-after command opportunity.

“For many students, ROTC detachment commanders are the first military leaders they meet,” said Sundy Muniz, ROTC assignments chief. “They have a significant influence on our future officer corps so it’s critical that committed, focused leaders command these detachments to develop exceptional leaders to lead the world’s most powerful teams.”

Selected officers, listed alphabetically by last name, with current major command and future AFROTC assignment:
Lt. Col. Michael Bailey, Defense Media Activity, Detachment 5, Auburn University
Lt. Col. Ryan Bird, Air Education and Training Command, Detachment 470, University of Nebraska - Omaha
