From the Commander: Well, my first semester at Kent State AFROTC is coming to a close. It’s been great so far to be a part of this organization – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with both the cadre and the cadets! Despite the weather we’ve had here in the early part of December, there is nowhere else I’d rather be and no mission I’d rather be doing! I’ve also had the chance to meet and/or speak with several of our alumni and am amazed at the divergent paths that they have taken after leaving Kent/Akron. Some of our alumni have thought so highly of our detachment that they have sent their own sons and daughters to us to be trained as future leaders of the U.S. Air Force! I’d like to offer my heartfelt thanks to all the alumni that have generously supported our detachment with financial contributions, mementos, souvenirs, unit coins, etc. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all of our alumni, family and friends for all that they do to help make this a better world – whether they are veterans, retirees, currently serving members, moms, dads, teachers, emergency personnel, brothers, sisters, sons, or daughters – THANKS to each and every one of you for the impact you have had through your own lives as well as for the impact you have had on the lives of future generations!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL and please be safe during your holiday travels and celebrations.

This article by: AAS C/2nd Lt. CHELSEA N. PERTGINIDES 2nd Lt. Kevin G. Bryan Squadron Kent State University 20 October, 2010 The 2nd Lt. Kevin G. Bryan Squadron set a new squadron record in October for the most funds raised by one fundraiser. Under the direction of C/Major David P. Bown, the Kent State University based squadron sold t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts created by a local business. The fundraiser was met with great interest, largely due to the fact that the clothing featured the detachment logo across the chest. The sweatshirt included the option of adding a last name down the sleeve. Exactly $4,802 was raised by the fundraiser. The squadron plans to use the funds to help cover the cost of attending NATCON and for squadron activities and future projects. This successful fundraiser occurs at the same time the squadron is campaigning for next school year’s area headquarters. C/Maj Bown commented, “We have eight members going to CINCON next month who are truly looking forward to representing the squadron well and making a strong push to become the next Area VI HQ.” One area the squadron focuses heavily on is volunteering within the community. The last event was held at the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank in Akron, Ohio. In just three hours, 23 members and candidates put together almost 750 boxes of food each weighing around 34 pounds. The 2nd Lt. Kevin G. Bryan Squadron is located at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, and has 19 active members, 33 candidates, and four honorary members.

Alumni Challenge and Throw down Patches Coins Monetary DET 630 Visits:

Alumni and Friends‌ We extend an open invitation to come and visit with us. The display board below featuring the cadre of AFROTC DET 630 was recently designed and is in the process of being made into a new wall display for the office. We thank you for your continued generous donations which allow us the opportunity to purchase items needed to keep our detachment looking professional and operating smoothly.

{Replacing the current display board}


Mrs. Smith, The shells I sent in are: 105mm PGU-43B Training Practice, 40mm HEI (High Explosive Incendiary) PGU-9 used overseas and PGU-44 30mm HEI which we fired in testing the gun on our plane to possibly replace our 40mm. Please let me know if you have any other questions. (BTW The 105 will polish up great with a bronze or copper polisher and if you put an acrylic sealant or hairspray on it afterwards it'll stay looking good for a long time, possible a good cadet job) Take care and thanks again for letting me stop in.
