The Basis of the Wilkes AFROTC

The Wilkes University Colonials have made arrangements for there to be an open house on the day of Thursday, April 7th, in which the hours consist of 3-4 pm social hour, 4-6 pm presentations, and 6-6:30 pm for campus tours. The location of the Aerospace studies is… Simms Center on Main 169 S. Main St.Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701.

Furthermore, this program puts forward the opportunity to interact with Air Force officers and cadets, watch live military
Training, learn about program benefits and scholarship opportunities, as well as their partnerships with 11 other universities. Since it is open to high school students and their families there are many possible roads to take within the program so be sure to take a look and give it a chance as it can help put you in the right direction. As for the message conveyed by those officials who have been dedicated to their studies, they would put the word in that such… “Participation in the Air Force ROTC program at Wilkes University provides students with the opportunity to network with students from a dozen other colleges and universities, join a meaningful team and honorable profession and learn about aviation-based careers. We have something to benefit every college student!”

What is Detachment 752?

Through the past efforts of Dr. Francis J. Michelini, who just so happened to be Wilkes’ former President, had 1973 Congressman Daniel J. Flood introduced that Wilkes had been selected to house the AFROTC Program. With the help of their first commander, Colonel James Aikman, fourteen students had been enrolled and ever since then AFROTC Detachment 752 has trained and set a plentiful number of younger males and females for future careers as United States Air Force officers.
