Quote by John Stuart Mill
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person, who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
Quote by Gen Charles A. Gabriel, Chief of Staff, USAF
"Integrity is the fundamental premise for military service in a free society. Without integrity, the moral pillars of our military strength, public trust, and self-respect are lost."
Quote by Father Denis Edward O'Brien, Sergeant, USMC
"It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protestor to burn the flag."
Quote by Alfred Thayer Mahan
"War, once declared, must be waged offensively, aggressively. The enemy must not be fended off,; but smitten down. You may the spare him every exaction, relinquish every gain, but 'til then he must be struck incessantly and remorselessly."
Quote by General George S. Patton, Jr., USA
"There is only one sort of discipline - PERFECT DISCIPLINE. Men cannot have good battle discipline and poor administrative discipline.
Quote by General Daniel S. "Chappie" James, USAF
"The power of excellence is overwhelming. It is always in demand, and nobody cares about its color."
Air Force Song: First Verse
Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At 'em boys, Give'er the gun!
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!
Air Force Song: Second Verse
Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
Sent it high into the blue;
Hands of men blasted the world asunder;
How they lived God only knew!
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings, ever to soar!
With scouts before and bombers galore. Hey!
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!
Air Force Song: Bridge
Here's a toast to the host
Of those who love the vastness of the sky,
To a friend we send a message of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those who gave their all of old,
Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold.
A toast to the host of men we boast, the U.S. Air Force!
Air Force Song: Final Verse
Off we go into the wild sky yonder,
Keep the wings level and true;
If you'd live to be a gray-haired wonder
Keep the nose out of the blue!
Flying men, guarding the nation's border,
We'll be there, followed by more!
In echelon we carry on. Hey!
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!

Monitor and assist cadets with specific areas of training. They are not assigned to a specific flight, but coordinate activities for all flights in the group with the Commandant of Cadets. The traditional Cadet Training Assistants consist of the Drill and Ceremonies, Group, Physical Training, Public Affairs, and Standardization Cadet Training Assistants.
Assist the Flight Commanders with training as directed. In addition to a Flight Commander, each flight will also have a Cadet Training Assistant.
Cadet Flight Supply Officer
The Cadet Flight Supply Officer is responsible for three main areas: supply, linen exchange, and facility discrepancy reporting. The Cadet Flight Supply Officer monitors supply storage areas and coordinates with the Director of Support office for restocking supplies. The Cadet Flight Supply Officer must ensure each cadet has two sheets, one mattress cover/pad, two blankets, one pillow, and one pillowcase. The Cadet Flight Supply Officer is also responsible for organizing and leading a detail to collect and exchange sheets and pillowcases on linen exchange days. Linen exchange will be as directed by the Command Support Staff. In addition, the Cadet Flight Supply Officers will be responsible for reporting and tracking facility discrepancies for their dorm/bays and will maintain a log of discrepancies that indicates when the discrepancies were reported and their status. Flight Supply Officers report discrepancies to the Command Support Staff using the facility discrepancy form issued at the initial meeting with Command Support Staff. Flight Supply Officer will be the only cadets that deal with Command Support Staff. When requesting supplies use a supply request form issued at your first meeting with Command Support Staff.
Flight Mail Orderly
The Cadet Flight Mail Orderly will acquire all cadet signatures authorizing mail delivery and report to the Command Support Staff section at the designated time to receive mail. All mail must be safeguarded until it is delivered to the addressee or returned to the Command Support Staff section. The mail orderly will collect all outgoing mail and deliver it to the Command Support Staff section at the time designated by the Director of Support. The Flight Mail Orderly must train an alternate and ensure that individual is available for duty when needed.
Element Leaders (three per flight) must account for each cadet in the element during duty hours. At formations, the element leader will take roll and report the results to the Cadet Deputy Flight Commander. While marching in formation, Element Leaders will call "Safety!" to identify any obstacles in the Flight's path. Any problems or concerns within the element should be reported to either the Cadet Deputy Flight Commander or the Cadet Flight Commander.
Guidon Bearer, Color Bearer, and Color Guard
These cadets coordinate with the Cadet Group Drill and Ceremonies Officer and perform duties as outline in AFMAN 36-2203. The Color Bearer and Color Guard members must be present for duty at least 10 minutes prior to formations. Individuals will acquire and return equipment for practice/formal parade. Flight guidons must be at all activities unless the Field Training staff directs otherwise.
Lying is any statement of untruth, which is meant to deceive or mislead. One example of lying at Field Training is intentionally signing in at an improper time in order to avoid a regulation violation.
Anyone who wrongfully takes, obtains, or withholds someone else's property without their permission, with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive another of such property, is guilty of stealing.
In essence, cheating is taking unfair advantage of another. Cheating violates the competitive sense of "fair play". An example of cheating at Field Training is not completing the minimum required push-ups during the Physical Fitness Assessment, yet coercing your spotter to indicate otherwise or knowingly allow it to occur.
Toleration means enduring without complaint. If you know a cadet has lied, stolen, or cheated, and you fail to report or confront the matter, you may be guilty of toleration, therefore breaking the honor code.
Purpose of the Honor Code
To foster an environment based upon a personal sense of honesty and integrity. Implementation of the Honor Code means you will be trusted to do what is right and must confront those who violate these standards. An honor code violation will result in mandatory counseling with the Commander and possible removal from Field Training. If you think a violation has occurred or if you have a question about the Honor Code, talk to your Flight Commander.
Officers with forthright integrity voluntarily decide the right thing to do and do it in both their professional and private lives. They do not choose the right thing because of a calculation of what is most advantageous to themselves, but because of a consistent and spontaneous inclination to do the right thing. Their inclination to do right is consistently followed by actually doing what they believe they should do and taking responsibility for their choices. In other words, persons of integrity do the right thing when no one is looking.
Service Before Self
Officers who are selfless in service to their country, the Air Force, and their subordinates know how to prioritize their loyalties so that their highest loyalty is to the moral principles reflected in the Constitution, then to the profession of arms, then to the mission, and lastly to individuals. People who serve selflessly resist the natural tendency to focus exclusively on self-serving desires and, therefore, do not take advantage of situations for personal pleasure, gain, or safety at the expense of the unit or mission. They share in the danger, hardships, and discomforts of subordinates. Their rank is shown by their commitment to duty and responsibility to others rather than claims of personal privilege or advantage.
Excellence In All We Do
Officer who are committed to excellence in the performance of their personal and professional responsibilities strive to do their best in everything they are capable of accomplishing. they base their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment not on how their accomplishments compare with others but on how they measure up compared to a realistic appraisal of what they are capable of accomplishing.

An infraction occurs when a cadet, who through design, neglect, or failure to perform duty, violates regulations or commits an act prejudicial to good order and military discipline.
Interaction with OTS
Remember that while in garrison, you will be a guest on Maxwell Air Force Base and a responsible user of the Officer Training School complex. Certain situations may necessitate cadet interaction with Officer Training School staff, trainees or other military members, so it is paramount to follow all rules and regulations, as well as be professional at all times. If a confrontation or disagreement occurs with anyone other that ROTC Field Training personnel, be professional and get their rank, name, flight and squadron, then report any incident to your Flight Commander or Commandant of Cadets.

Further, excessive tattoos, defined as those that exceed 25% of the exposed body part (or are visible above the collarbone) as shown in Figure 3.3, while in any uniform are unauthorized and must be in the process of being removed at the cadet's expense prior to attending Field Training. Detachment Commanders will provide documentation via Memorandum For Record for any cadet with unauthorized or inappropriate tattoos stating that the cadet has been counseled on AFROTC and Air Force requirements and has begun removal of the aforementioned tattoos.
Drugs and Alcohol
The Air Force does not tolerate the use of illegal drugs or chemicals. Failure to divulge drug use will result in disciplinary action and may prevent your entry into the Professional Officer Course. While at Field Training, the Field Training Commander will schedule canine drugs sweeps of the dorms. Cadets at Field Training are strictly prohibited from consuming any alcoholic beverages, regardless of age or situation. Violation of this policy will result in immediate removal from Field training.
Information Management Tools
AETC IMT 341, Excellence/Discrepancy Report. Used for "on the spot" counseling. Cadets must have three AETC IMT 341s on their person at all times (with first two lines completely filled out). The date on the form should reflect the Field Training day such as "TD-3" rather than the Julian date.
The rules of military decorum are founded on customs and traditions. The responsibility for military decorum is a mutual one in which the junior initiates the act of courtesy and politeness and the senior responds with like courtesy and politeness.
Use appropriate military courtesies when greeting Field Training staff, Officer Training School staff, or any other recognized military members. Always use full rank and last name if you recognize the member or by "Sir/Ma'am" as appropriate.

It's not necessary to halt at every doorway or intersection, but they will watch for people coming out of offices/around corners. In order to prevent undue carpet wear, cadets will not square corners in carpeted areas. Cadets may not speak unless making on-the-spot corrections to other cadets, addressing or being addressed by Field Training or officer Training School staff or visitors, or giving the greeting of the day.
