BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif., --
For a second time in the past six months, Airmen from the 548th Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Group have been instrumental in developing tomorrow's Air Force leaders.
Maj. Sara, 13th Intelligence Squadron training flight commander, organized and led eight Airmen to provide instruction to Air Force ROTC cadets May 2 at Sacramento State University, Calif., Det. 088.
"The goal of bringing personnel outside of Air Force ROTC cadre to Sacramento State is to help expand their knowledge with real-life examples," said Maj. Sara.
On their first visit, the team instructed more than 70 freshmen and sophomore cadets on the Air Force Core Values. Because of the success of this trip the team was expanded for a second visit.
The second visit focused on the Air Force Code of Conduct, Airman's Creed, and the Commissioning Oath. This information was tailored to senior cadets who attended the briefing and were all within four weeks of commissioning.
"These are three areas that are significant for future officers," said Maj. Sara. "The goal was to take the ROTC material and take it up a notch; tell stories, bring in discussion and help them understand that these three documents are not just words - they matter in every day they will serve in the Air Force."
Additionally, the Airmen participated in a career day program and provided insight into the intelligence and other career fields for the entire detachment of 140 cadets.
"I greatly appreciate the support and the enthusiasm with which these Airmen provide us," said Lt. Col. Richard Aaron, Det. 088 commander. "I can't think of a better way of learning about [the Air Force] than from these high caliber Airmen."
