MEMORANDUM FOR INCOMING CADETS

FROM: AFROTC Detachment 665 Commander

SUBJECT: New Student Orientation Program

    1. Welcome to the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) program at the University of Cincinnati! I'm Lt Col Shaun House, the Detachment Commander and I am pleased that you are considering a career in the United States Air Force. On 18-19 September

    we will be conducting a New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) in Swift Hall room 800.

    Please refer to the schedule included with this packet for specific times. The NSOP is open to both new cadets and their parents and will provide an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with AFROTC, your fellow cadets and your possible future as an Air Force officer.

    2. Here at Det 665, our officers and enlisted personnel ensure that you receive the best military training. While we oversee the administrative side of our mission to develop students into future Air Force Officers, the Detachment Wing is run by the cadets. During your first two years as a General Military Course (GMC) cadet, you will be trained by the Professional Officer Course (POC) cadets. These are cadets who have successfully completed their initial training and graduated from Field Training, a five week rigorous training and evaluation period that all cadets attend prior to entering the POC. As you progress through ROTC and move from a GMC cadet to a POC cadet, you will have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills and train your fellow cadets. Upon graduating from ROTC, you will be ready to enter the Air Force as a 2nd Lieutenant.

    3. Our mission to train each of you starts from day one, and I urge you to make every effort to attend NSOP. It is something that both you and your parents will benefit greatly from. NSOP will provide you a chance to learn what it means to be a cadet in ROTC, and to build a bond with your fellow cadets.

    4. Congratulations on taking the first step toward an Air Force commission and a great way of life. I look forward to your arrival! If you have any questions regarding NSOP, please contact the Detachment at 513-556-2237.

MEMORANDUM FOR INCOMING CADETS

FROM: AFROTC Detachment 665 Cadet Wing Commander

SUBJECT: New Student Orientation Program

    1. Welcome to the University of Cincinnati and Air Force ROTC! As cadets and future officers in the United States Air Force, you are about to embark on what will hopefully be one of the best times of your life. As a fellow student and soon-to-be graduate from The University of Cincinnati, I know what college life is like and how important it is to start off on the right foot. That is our hope during our New Student Orientation Program (NSOP), to get each and every one of you started on the right foot. Whether you are an incoming freshman, or someone who has completed a few years of college, everyone can gain something through NSOP.

    2. This year's NSOP has been designed with all of you in mind. It is our goal to get you up to speed as quickly as possible and to provide you with information that will help you to succeed in ROTC. At NSOP, you will learn many of the basics such as how to wear a uniform and the Air Force customs and courtesies. In addition, you will be introduced to the other functions of ROTC such as our Color Guard and Civil Air Patrol (CAP), which offers cadets opportunities to fly with trained pilots, free of charge. You will also meet and get to know your fellow cadets, and have some fun.

    3. I urge you to read through this packet thoroughly. All of the information that you need is contained in this packet. The rest of this packet needs to be filled out and brought to NSOP. If you have any questions regarding the packet, NSOP, or any other general concerns, please feel free to contact the Detachment at 513-556-2237.

    4. I am looking forward to another great year and I am both exited and honored to be your Cadet Commander for the coming fall term. Enjoy the rest of your summer break and I look forward to seeing you September 18 and 19 at NSOP.

    Important Information

1. Reporting. All NSOP participants should report to Swift Hall 800 (see attached map) between

    1030 and 1045 on Friday, 18 September 2009. If you are a Cross-town (Xavier, NKU, etc)

    cadet and will be in class on Friday, an excuse letter from the Detachment Commander will be provided. Please circle “Yes” on the NSOP Reservation Form stating that you will need a letter releasing you from class.

    2. Physical Fitness. During NSOP you will be required to participate in light physical activities. We will be playing Ultimate Frisbee, and I urge all of you to get in shape before NSOP and the upcoming school year. The upcoming quarter will be easier if you arrive at NSOP in good physical condition. Our physical requirements are ongoing and ever increasing. You will be tested every quarter throughout your AFROTC experience.

    3. Physical Preparation. To make the transition into ROTC, you need to begin preparing yourself by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Below is a basic 3-week Physical Conditioning Plan that is designed to prime you for our morning Physical Training (PT) sessions. WeekExerciseMondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFridaySaturdaySunday

    These exercises can be done throughout the day. As a tip,

    instead of doing nothing during a TV commercial, do a set of

    push-ups or crunches. Broken up, these sets of exercises can be

    manageable. If this workout routine is too aggressive, take out a

    few sets or do fewer reps per set. If it is not enough, add more

    sets or more repetitions to each set. The key is to always push

    yourself to do better.

    Men and Women4. Weight Standards. To the right are the weight standards for

    Height Maximum Minimum males and females. Just like the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) (in)Weight (lb)Weight (lb)which is administered every quarter, you must meet the Air 5813191Force weight standards.

    opportunity to make it within regulations. 61145100

    63155107The table gives you an idea of the weight chart against which 64160110you will be measured. Height is measured from the floor to a 65165114plane perpendicular to the top of your head with your head and 66170117back against a wall. This height measurement (to quarter inch 67175121

    increment) is then plotted to the male or female weight table. 68180125

    You maximum allowable weight (MAW) is the upper limit. 69186128

    MAW) require extra counseling and monitoring to ensure 76225156

    77231160standards are met.
