Russell Fornwalt sworn into UA AFRTOC
2017 Sep 27
University of Alabama student Russell Fornwalt is not contracted with UA AFROTC.
Twenty University of Alabama undergraduates were contracted into UA's Air Force ROTC detachment 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 atypical but celebrated venue and audience, as contracting ceremonies are typically low-key, with family and other cadets and ROTC cadre present.
