The Word from DET 630 04 Feb 2010 Summer/Fall 2013 University of Akron Baldwin Wallace University Case Western Reserve Cleveland State University Hiram College Kent State University University of Mount Union Youngstown State University The Word From DET 630 Issue 8 22 I hope this newsletter finds all of you well and in good spirits. I am Lt Col Daniel Finkelstein, the newest commander of Detachment 630. As alumni, each of you left an indelible mark on this detachment and helped make it one of the best in the nation. It is my honor to accept the guidon and produce the next great crop of leaders for our Air Force. The Word From DET 630 The opportunity to be a PAS and influence the next generation of young officers is really a dream come true. After all, I spent 4 years in ROTC trying to stay out of the PAS office, now that is my office…hard to believe. What isn’t hard to believe is how amazing our cadets are. Our Cadet Wing has approximately 120 cadets from Kent State University, Case Western Reserve University, the University of Akron, Youngstown State University, and Cleveland State University. ROTC, like the rest of the military, is shrinking, and that is making it extremely competitive. They quality of our cadets is astonishing. More importantly, the quality of the officers we commission is equally impressive. They really are the best of the best, which is a reflection of the alumni of our program. If you are ever in town, please make some time to stop by and see us. We would love to have you participate in Leadership Laboratory or our Aerospace classes. But, you might not recognize the place. The detachment just got a $20,000 facelift and looks amazing…thanks to Mrs. Smith. We have an exciting semester planned and may contact you to help with career day. Our cadets are always interested in “war stories” from active duty and previous generations of officers, especially Det 630 grads. If you are available, consider joining us for the Fall Dinning Out on 22 November. If you have any questions call anytime at (330) 672-8212.

I promise you that I am still producing them. Many changes have taken place in DET 630. Over the summer I was promoted and have taken on some additional administrative duties for the university. Terrace Hall has been freshly painted; and the columns are now blue. Classrooms have been updated with new technology and equipment and we are about to embark on room revisions. Thank you for including me on the plans for the recent reunion. Next time, I promise I will plan better so I can attend! Please keep the stories and pictures coming!! Page 1
