Air Commando Association AF JROTC Program

The Air Commando Association, working with Laurel Highlands High School Air Force JROTC Mustang Squadron in Uniontown, PA and Headquarters, Air Force JROTC is proud to offer a new, national level award to AFJROTC cadets. It is the Air Commando Association Award and is designed to increase the awareness of our youth in Air Force Special Operations Forces and their historical contributions.

One cadet per unit will be recognized annually based on a one-page essay highlighting a historical Air Force Special Operations Mission. The cadet must also possess the 13 Critical Attributes of Success that distinguish an elite AFSOC Air Commando. These critical attributes include:

• Integrity 
• Self-Motivation 
• Intelligence 
• Self-Discipline 
• Perseverance 
• Adaptability 

• Maturity
• Judgment
• Selflessness 
• Leadership 
• Skilled 
• Physical Fitness 
• Family Strength

Each unit’s winner will be selected by the Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (a retired officer) or Aviation Science Instructor (a retired NCO) and will receive a recognition package including a ribbon and certificate. AFJROTC Unit PA-20091 will mail the ribbons and certificate template to each AFJROTC unit not later than the last day of March of each calendar year as a national service project. If a medal is desired, one is available for each unit or cadet to purchase from Vanguardmil.com. The medal and ribbon (shown above, left) are based on the colors and meaning within the Air Commando Association logo.

These efforts will pay off for years to come by helping to educate nearly 100,000 cadets yearly in over 850 AF JROTC Units on the history and contributions of Air Force Special Operations.
