Ashley Hellwig sworn into UA AFROTC
2017 Sep 28
University of Alabama undergraduate student Ashley Hellwig is now contracted with UA's Air Force ROTC detachment.
Hellwig and 19 other UA students were sworn into UA AFROTC on Thursday, Sept. 21 at "Bama Salute," a UA Athletics-sponsored event that honors active duty military members and veterans at various UA sporting events throughout the year.
The UA cadets were sworn in at a UA soccer game in front of nearly 700 people, an unusual but celebrated venue and audience, as contracting ceremonies are typically low-key, with family and other cadets and ROTC cadre present.
