Hawaii ROTC Detachment to Visit ASU's Leadership Lab
Representatives from the Air Force ROTC Detachment 175 at the University of Hawaii will visit Angelo State University Wednesday, March 28, to observe and participate in the Leadership Laboratory conducted by ASU's AFROTC Detachment 847.
The Leadership Laboratory is conducted weekly, in addition to other AFROTC classes at ASU, to provide training and perspective in educating future officers and leaders for the Air Force.
Representatives of Detachment 175 are in West Texas not only to participate in the Leadership Laboratory but also to visit Dyess and Goodfellow Air Force Bases. Participation in the Leadership Laboratory is the concluding event before the representatives return to Hawaii.
Detachment 175's current Cadet Corps Commander is Tess Marcial, who attended ASU and was a member of Detachment 847 before transferring to Hawaii. She was an active duty Air Force member stationed at Goodfellow before joining ASU's detachment.
The cadre member accompanying the cadets from Hawaii is Capt. Jerome Osurman, who served with some of Detachment 847's cadre members at field training conducted this summer at Lackland AFB, San Antonio. Osurman also served as the flight training officer for ASU's current Cadet Corps Commander Jeff Sipe. Sipe is also a prior service Air Force member and served with Marcial at Goodfellow before they both joined ROTC at ASU.
