Michigan Tech AFROTC Named Tops in the Nation
February 26, 2014/Mich Tech News

Michigan Technological University’s AFROTC detachment has been named Team of the Year in an annual competition to determine the best AFROTC detachment in the nation. Tech’s detachment topped 145 AFROTC detachments and more than 1,100 colleges and universities nationwide.

“Michigan Tech’s Detachment 400 AFROTC team win reflects the dedication of prior and current AFROTC faculty,” said Lieutenant Colonel Michael Brothers, commander of Tech’s AFROTC and head of the Department of Aerospace Studies. “Plus the outstanding support we’ve received within the College of Science and Arts, by senior Michigan Tech personnel, and across the entire campus and community.”

“The training [the cadets] get up here, despite the fact that we are a rather remote university compared to a lot of the other locations, is as good, if not better, than the training they would’ve received somewhere else,” Brothers said. Michigan Tech’s detachment has worked to continuously improve, and they won’t stop, he added.
