Drill and Ceremonies

Drill and ceremonies are important part of AFJROTC training. As first year cadets, you will learn basic drills and how to follow commands. We will spend a lot of time developing your drill and ceremonies skills. The primary reference is the drill and ceremonies manual. Second, Third, and Fourth year cadets will be learning more difficult commands, leading formations, and will be able to train cadets on proper drill sequence, commands, and basic drill fundamentals.
All second, third, and fourth year cadets are expected to be able to command a flight utilizing the standard 30 count drill sequence, displayed below. The cadet serving as Flight commander will report in and out by saluting the individual who controls the field of performance and normally evaluates the flight’s performance. Cadets will be graded on their ability to properly execute these commands and direct the flight within a specified drill area.
 
The Flight commander will report in first.

Expectations
1. Promotions:
The following criteria will be used for promotion within FL-022:
 Cadets will be promoted on the basis of maturity, ability, potential, willingness to accept responsibility, and a demonstrated growth of leadership qualities.
 
 Participation in co-curricular activities will play a key role in the promotion process.
 
 Only the SASI/ASIs have the authority to promote or demote cadets. The cadet staff may make recommendations concerning selection of cadets for promotion/demotion through the Group Corps Commander to the SASI/ASIs.
 
a) There are 2 kinds of rank a cadet may hold: Temporary and Permanent.
i. Permanent rank is awarded on the number of years of satisfactory service in AFJROTC.
Class Level Permanent Rank
AS1 Cadet Airman
AS2 Cadet Airman First Class
AS3 Cadet Senior Airman
AS4 Cadet Staff Sergeant
AS5 Cadet Technical Sergeant
NOTE: These ranks will be assigned at the end of the first 9-weeks for AS2-AS5 cadets who have met the promotion criteria. All first year cadets are promoted to their permanent rank at the start of their second semester in the AFJROTC program.
 
i. Temporary ranks are awarded based on the staff position assigned and the performance of each cadet. Temporary ranks will not be necessarily carried over from one year to the next. Temporary ranks are assigned only when the rank is higher than the permanent rank. The higher of the 2 ranks will be worn. When selected for staff positions, cadets will normally be promoted to a temporary rank lower than the maximum rank authorized for that position to allow for promotion opportunities. When cadets prove that they can and are performing their job properly, they may be promoted to the maximum rank authorized. When cadets occupying command and staff positions are relieved of their positions, they will normally revert to their permanent rank or may be assigned to another position calling for a different temporary rank. Graduating seniors will usually retain the highest temporary rank earned during the year unless they are reduced for failure to maintain standards expected. The SASI/ASIs will make position assignments with recommendations on the same from the staff members. All Staff Changes will be published on Group Special Orders. All Staff Members are expected to maintain grades no less than a “C”.
 
b) Staff and Flight positions are limited. FL-022 is a cadet operated unit in so far as possible and will be operated under the supervision and guidance of the SASI/ASIs. This does not pertain to the academic side of the program.
 
c) Cadet Officers and NCO’s will set the example for other cadets to follow at all times. NCO’s are defined as the ranks Staff Sergeant, Tech Sergeant, Master Sergeant, Senior Master Sergeant, and Chief Master Sergeant. Cadets will not attempt to use AFJROTC rank or position in order to obtain personal gain or favor. Cadet Officers and NCO’s will suggest improvements in subordinates appearance and behavior at any time, and are required to report major infractions to the SASI/AASI.
All cadets selected for Officer/ NCO rank will be required to execute a cadet Commissioned/ Non-Commissioned Officer Declaration.

Our unit motto is “Leadership by Example”. AFJROTC cadets are expected to operate with a minimum of supervision and display the most outstanding citizenship qualities of any group of students in Choctaw.
