With spring break visitors taking
over the local area, even the 325th
Fighter Wing couldn't out-maneuver
the student invasion.
In fact, the Checkertails welcomed
the challenge by hosting college
students from three universities on
an installation tour to introduce them
to active-duty lifestyle.
Air Force Reserve Officer
Training Corps cadets from Indiana
University, Indiana State University
and the University of Louisville
arrived on base the evening of March
10 and began their tour the following
morning.
For the first day of the tour, the
cadets got an inside look into the
Air Control Squadron, the 95th


Fighter Squadron and Air Combat
Maneuvering Instrumentation.
"It gave us a good opportunity to
get a hands-on experience of base
operations," said Cadet 3rd Class
Angelo Underly, Indiana State
University cadet.
The second day, the cadets
visited the Silver Flag deployment
training area, where they were
hosted by Detachment 1 of the
823rd Rapid Engineer Deployable
Heavy Operational Repair
Squadron Engineers or RED
HORSE. While there, the cadets
helped set up a runway, received
an emergency management brief
and viewed a C-130 mockup fire-
fighting operation.
To cap their RED HORSE
experience, the students finished
the morning with a field ration


lunch of spaghetti, green beans and
salad served in a deployed dining
facility tent.
After lunch, the cadets received a
mission brief at the 83rd Weapons
Evaluation Group and viewed an
F-4 drone display.
The second day concluded at the
43rd Fighter Squadron, where the
students learned the F-22 Raptor
capabilities, got an up-close look at
the aircraft, met a Raptor pilot and
interacted with some 43rd Aircraft
Maintenance Unit maintainers.
"I think it was a real good
experience," said Cadet 4th Class
Alex Hermes, University of
Louisville cadet. "Going into the
Air Force as an officer, it gave us
a good chance to ask questions,
interact with the active duty

Airmen and search for careers we
may want to pursue later on."
The base tour program receives
many requests during the spring
for AFROTC detachments to
utilize their spring break to give
cadets the experience.
"I think this was a good opportunity
for these cadets to see some career
fields that they may not have seen,"
said Lt. Col. Tammy Lundborg,
Indiana State University's AFROTC
detachment 218 commander. "Not
only that, but they got exposed to
life on base in general and got a
chance to interact with both enlisted
personnel and officers. They don't
necessarily get exposed to that at
their detachments."
