Welcome to Air Force ROTC Detachment 165, based out of the Georgia Institute of Technology and host to 13 cross-town schools in the Metro-Atlanta area. General Omar Bradley once stated that “Leadership is intangible, and therefore no weapon ever designed can replace it.” Our detachment wholeheartedly follows this creed, and to this end we have based our curriculum around developing the highest quality leaders for the Air Force as possible. Our program is based in military tradition, giving students experiences in followership, leadership, critical thinking, all while developing lasting friendships with the cadets around them. Our program is meant to be challenging, but the rewards gained from growing individually and professionally make it worth it. Thank you for coming to our Detachment, and I look forward to continuing our history of excellence with you.
-C/Col George Cooksey, 165th Cadet Wing Commander, Fall 2015
