Squadron 6

Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
Sq. 6, Flying Tigers
Purpose:
The mission of Squadron 6 is: "Preparing cadets for a lifetime of selfless service."
We accomplish this mission through academic discipline, military training, and community service.

• Academic discipline provides the key to success in college and the foundation for a lifetime of creative leadership.
• Military training provides an environment in which incoming freshmen can learn about the value of humility and the importance of serving others in the midst of difficult circumstances. In addition, effective military training is essential to preparing cadets for a successful career in the Air Force.
• Community service allows us to strengthen outfit unity, serve the wider community, and open our minds to the needs of others.
