  • Establish a network of Det 172 alumni to reunite old friendships and establish new ones

  • Create a scholarship fund to recognize outstanding Det 172 cadets

  • Promote the outstanding relationship between VSU and the military

  • Have fun through social events and get-together's

2012 Alumni Homecoming Reunion and Barbeque:

An alumni reunion and barbeque is planned for the evening of October 19, 2012, the Friday night before theDelta State Homecoming game. The barbeque will be held in the Detachment at 6:00 PM with the cadets and staff in attendance as well. Registration will start at 5:00 PM to allow some time for mingling. The cost of this year’s event will be $35.00, spouses will be $20.00. This will cover not only your meal and associated support costs but also that of a cadet. If you are interested in attending, please contact me so I can get an idea of how many to expect.

VSU Spring 2011 Alumni “Voice” Magazine:

The Spring 2011 Alumni “Voice” magazine features AFROTC Det 172 Alumni! 

Alumni Help:

We are looking for help with the AFROTC Alumni activities. The Detachment staff officers have done a great job and they will remain engaged, but we need some help. If you are interested, please contact me and we can discuss opportunities. It does not take a great deal of time, just someone who can communicate and have the best interest of the cadets at heart. We have a real opportunity to take advantage of our alumni base and provide mentoring for current cadets as well as fellowship at events during the year. If you are energetic and love Valdosta State, we want you!

Give us a SITREP!

Let us know what you have been up to since commissioning and how you have aspired further. Send us letters, photos, videos, war stories, anything from what you have been doing as that isn't classified.

Come Visit the Detachment!

Come back to your Alma Mater and visit, even talk with the cadets.

Again, please come and join us on October 19th. If you have any questions, please call or e-mail me at (850) 223-1315 /
