PREFACE

      “Be convinced that to be happy means to be free and that to be free means to be brave.
                         Therefore do not take lightly the perils of war.”
                              Thucydides, The Peloponnesian War

This Field Training Guide (FTG) is yours to keep. Everything you need to know to prepare for Field Training (FT)
is included within. You may write in, highlight, or underline any items of importance. Ensure you have a thorough
understanding of this material prior to departing for your Field Training Unit (FTU), as you will be held accountable
for this upon arrival at FT. YOU MUST TAKE THIS FTG WITH YOU TO FT.

Your detachment staff will provide you with orders, tickets, uniforms, and other items that you must take to FT. You
must keep two copies of your orders with you at all times. Provide your family a copy of your orders, arrival and
departure times, and the FTU address and phone number. Your detachment will provide you with this information.

For those cadets who travel via air, we recommend you bring one complete set of blues and one complete PT
uniform in a carry-on bag. Every year several cadets arrive ahead of their luggage. Having one set of basic uniform
items with you will help carry you over until the rest of your luggage arrives.

Advise your family that if an emergency should arise, the best way to contact you is through the American Red
Cross. This method is usually faster than a telegram or personal phone call and will provide official verification of
the emergency. Also, it is extremely important that prior to departing for Field Training, you verify and update your
emergency data (name and address of next of kin) with your detachment personnel.

If you have any questions about FT or the FTG, your detachment staff will be happy to assist you. Good luck, stay
motivated, and remember you are preparing to be part of the United States Air Force!

CHAPTER 1: FIELD TRAINING ORGANIZATION

1. OVERVIEW. Field Training is a mandatory program for all individuals qualified to pursue an Air Force
commission through AFROTC. The program is designed to evaluate military leadership and discipline, determine
your potential for entry into the Professional Officer Course (POC), and stratify you among your peers. Depending
upon your background, you will attend either a standard (4-week) FTU or an extended (6-week) FTU.

2. FIELD TRAINING STAFF.
    a. Commander (FT/CC). The FT/CC exercises general command over the staff and cadets assigned to the
FTU. The FT/CC is a colonel and is responsible for the accomplishment of the FT mission. The key links between
the FT/CC and cadets are the Field Training Director of Operations (FT/DO), the Commandant of Cadets (FT/COC),
the Flight Training Officers (FTO), and the Cadet Training Assistants (CTA).
   b. Vice Commander (FT/CV). The FT/CV is second in command of the FTU and takes over command in the
absence of the FT/CC.
   c. Director of Support (FT/SD). The FT/SD oversees all support staff functions including administration,
scheduling, special projects, and host base support.
   d. Scheduling Officer (FT/SDS). The FT/SDS is in charge of scheduling and ensures all training curriculum
and administration is scheduled.
   e. Project Officer (FT/SDP). The FT/SDP coordinates all special projects to include but not limited to Career
Day, FT memorabilia program, Guest Speaker program, Dining-In (if applicable), Educator’s Visit (if applicable)
and any other public affairs related activities.
   f. Director of Operations (FT/DO). The FT/DO is responsible for the daily operations of the Cadet Group.
The FT/DO supervises the ADO, COC, and FTO functions.
   g. Assistant Director of Operations (FT/ADO). The FT/ADO is the primary link between the FT/DO and the
FTOs. The FT/ADO facilitates information flow to and from FTOs to ensure FTOs have all necessary resources to
evaluate cadets and to ensure the group is effectively managing the training program.
    h. Commandant of Cadets (FT/COC). The FT/COC maintains discipline, standardizes training, and oversees
the physical training (PT), drill and ceremonies (D&C), and standardization programs for the cadet group. The focus
of the FT/COC is standardized cadet training and performance.
   i. Flight Training Officer (FTO). FTOs are the cornerstone of FT. FTOs train, evaluate, and counsel cadets
within the flights. Each flight (approximately 28 cadets) has its own FTO.
   j. Command Support Staff (CSS). The CSS handles all administrative functions during FT to include but not
limited to in- and out-processing, tracking missed training, operating government vehicles in support of all FT needs,
manning the command post, updating flag conditions, and managing postal distribution.

3. CADET TRAINING ASSISTANT (CTA). CTAs are POC cadets selected, based on their FT performance and
overall cadet record, to return to FT as assistants to active duty staff members. There are several types of CTAs
including Traditional, Group, Squadron, and Flight.
   a. Traditional CTAs: Monitor and assist cadets with specific areas of training. They are not assigned to a
specific flight, but coordinate activities for all flights in the group with the FT/COC. The Traditional CTAs consist
of the Drill and Ceremonies (D&C), Group, Physical Training (PT), Public Affairs (PA) and Standardization
(STANDO) CTAs. Each cadet group will have its own Traditional CTAs assigned to it.
    b. Squadron CTAs: Provide additional assistance to the FTOs and Flight CTAs in their squadrons. They are
assigned in a ratio of one CTA per cadet squadron.
    c. Flight CTAs: Monitor cadets and assist the FTOs with training as directed. In addition to an FTO, each
flight will also have a CTA.

4. CADET ORGANIZATION. FTUs consist of one or more cadet groups of 300-360 cadets each (Figure 1-1).
At FTUs with two or more groups, the groups may be formed up as a wing for ceremonial functions, such as parades;
however, there will not be a permanent cadet wing staff.

FIGURE 1-1. Cadet Group Organization

NOTE: There may be up to six sequentially numbered squadrons in a group. Each squadron will have three
alphabetically designated flights.

5. CADET LEADERSHIP RESPONSIBILITIES. All cadets are responsible for maintaining discipline and
setting a proper example. Cadets in leadership positions can give orders to subordinate cadets. However, they
cannot excuse cadets from formations or change orders and regulations. If a cadet in a leadership position is
required to be absent from any formation or activity, he/she must notify the next cadet in the chain-of-command to
take charge. Cadets may not award merits or demerits.

6. CADET POSITIONS. As a cadet, you will hold various positions within the cadet organization. The FTOs will
assign most of these positions. These positions may be classified as leadership or non-leadership and may be
permanent or rotating. Rank will not change based on position held. All cadets will wear Cadet 3rd Class rank for
the duration of FT. Prior to each rotation of leadership positions, the incoming and outgoing group commanders will
meet with the FT/COC. Also, the outgoing cadet staff will brief the incoming staff on duties and items of interest.
All cadet staff members will be evaluated on their performance. Ordinarily, cadets will not hold more than one
leadership position during FT.

                                                     6
CHAPTER 2: PAY AND TRAVEL

1. PAY
    a. All cadets are paid at the same rate per training day (non-U.S. citizens who attend AFROTC FT but are not
pursuing a commission are not entitled to pay while at FT). Pay starts on TD-1 and ends on the last day of FT or the
day you are released from FT. You must have a checking account and an SF Form 1199A, Direct Deposit Sign-up
Form, on file at your detachment to receive FT pay. While at FT, you will receive a partial advance payment of
$100 to help defray personal expenses. This advance payment is part of your pay and will be deducted from your
total FT payment – do not claim this on your travel voucher. Approximately $50 of your advance payment may be
used to help pay for a Dining-In/Awards Banquet (if applicable) or other cadet activities – this payment is optional.
   b. Your pay is income and therefore subject to Federal Income Withholding and Social Security taxes (FICA).
Exemption from withholding of federal income taxes is authorized only if you have completed a TD Form W-4,
Employees Withholding Allowance Certificate, which states you had no income tax liability in the prior tax year and
expect none for the current tax year. A TD Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, will be mailed to you no later than
31 January of the next year. Be sure to keep this form, as you will be required to file it with your annual tax return.
   c. Servicemen's Group Life Insurance (SGLI) basic coverage is available for cadets who attend FT. Forms must
be completed at your detachment before you depart for FT. You will automatically receive the maximum amount of
coverage ($250,000). You may, however, elect to decline SGLI or opt for a reduced coverage. Coverage can be
reduced from $250,000 to any amount using $10,000 increments.

2. TRAVEL
   a. Because FT attendance is mandatory for an AFROTC commission, the Air Force will pay for your travel to
and from FT. There are four modes of travel for FT attendance: air, bus, rail, or privately owned vehicle (POV).
Do not attempt to hitchhike to FT under any circumstances. Regardless of the mode of travel, scholarship cadets will
receive a pro rata share of the current per diem payment based on travel time. Cadets are also reimbursed for
mileage to and from the airport, bus, or rail terminal.
    b. Your travel orders direct you to travel from a specified point of departure (POD) to a specified FT base and,
upon completion of training, return to the same POD. Your POD is either the city and state you live in and plan to
return to upon completion of FT, or it is the city and state where your detachment is located. The staff at your
detachment should ask you for your POD. Once you receive your orders, verify the POD and assigned FTU are
correct. If you request to return from FT at a later date or to a different POD, you will be responsible for making the
changes – your detachment or FT staff cannot do this for you. It will be your responsibility to pay any additional
costs associated with the ticket change. Advise your detachment and make these changes prior to leaving for FT.
       (1) AIR TRAVEL. Air transportation is the normal mode of travel if the airport closest to your POD is 200
or more miles away from the servicing airport at your FT location. AF Reserve members are authorized to travel by
military aircraft on a space available basis; however, they are not authorized travel pay for that portion of the travel.
           (a) Your detachment will provide you with airline tickets (paper or electronic) and a flight itinerary.
Paper tickets have a cash value and are your responsibility. If your tickets are lost or stolen, you must notify your
detachment immediately. Lost or stolen tickets will not be replaced; you will be responsible to finance your own
travel. Additionally, paper tickets are heat sensitive and should be protected from direct sunlight and temperatures
that exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This will cause the ticket to blacken and become unreadable. The airlines will
not honor, reissue, or otherwise refund tickets in this condition.
           (b) Once you receive your tickets and itinerary, verify your flight information and ensure you are issued a
complete round trip ticket. You should arrive at FT as early as possible in the window of 1000 - 1800 hours. If
your tickets indicate an arrival outside of that window, contact your detachment immediately to facilitate a change.
Cadets traveling from overseas locations, except Puerto Rico, may arrive 1 day early to help combat “jet lag.”
             (c) Overseas transportation will be provided only for cadets who reside in Alaska, Hawaii and US
territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, Canal Zone, or American Samoa) or whose sponsor is active duty
military on PCS orders. Otherwise, cadets traveling from overseas will receive government provided transportation
from and to the same port-of-entry. The remaining portion of the travel will be at the cadet’s expense.


                                                           7
             (d) In some instances, you may be issued E-Tickets (electronic) or instructed to pick up your airline
tickets at the airport. If this happens, you should call the designated airline, confirm the reservation, ensure the ticket
is paid for, and report to the airline counter at least 2 hours prior to your scheduled flight. Unless you have been
directed to do so, DO NOT purchase a ticket at your own expense. In the event the airline has no reservation or the
ticket is not paid for, contact your detachment staff immediately. If no one is available, call HQ AFROTC/DOTO
direct at (800) 522-0033, ext. 2817/2816 or (334) 953-2817/2816.
            (e) If you already have your tickets, you should arrive at the airport at least 1 hour prior to your flight.
Visit the airline service desk and ensure you are not exceeding baggage restrictions – you will be responsible for
excess baggage costs.
            (f) In the event you or the airline reschedules your flight, notify your detachment staff immediately. They
will in turn notify the FT staff with your new arrival information. However, if the airline offers you a gift (money,
voucher, free trip, etc.) for a schedule change, you must turn it in to the FT or detachment staff to make an
entitlement determination (under some circumstances you may be allowed to keep the gift). Do not volunteer to be
bumped from your scheduled flight to FT under any circumstances.
            (g) An AFROTC representative will be present in the baggage claim area to direct you to the bus for
transit to your FTU. Prior to boarding the bus, you should call home one final time to let your loved ones know you
arrived safely. Telephones are off-limits upon arrival at FT.
            (h) YOU MUST TURN-IN ANY UNUSED TRAVEL TICKETS. Turn in all unused tickets with
your travel voucher to your detachment staff as soon as possible.
       (2) BUS/RAIL TRAVEL. Bus or rail transportation is normally reserved for cadets whose POD is less than
200 miles from the FTU. If you are over the 200-mile limit, you may request bus or rail transportation if the cost is
lower than a comparable airline ticket.
            (a) Your detachment will provide you with either bus/rail tickets and a travel itinerary, or a Government
Transportation Request (GTR), which is similar to a certified check. If you receive a GTR, it will be your
responsibility to go to the terminal and secure your tickets. As with airline tickets, bus/rail tickets and the GTR are
your responsibility; therefore, if they are lost or stolen, you will have to replace them at your own expense. Verify
the travel time and ensure you arrive in the window of 1000 - 1800 hours. If your tickets indicate you will arrive
outside of that window, notify your detachment immediately in order to facilitate a change.
           (b) Bus and rail lines have strict allowable baggage codes; consequently, you must contact your carrier
and inquire about any baggage restrictions. Plan to arrive at least 1 hour prior to your planned departure.

           (c) An AFROTC representative will be present at the terminal to transport you to your FTU. If an
AFROTC member is not present, contact your FTU immediately to announce your arrival. Prior to departing the
terminal, you should call home one final time to let your loved ones know you arrived safely. Telephones are off-
limits upon arrival at FT.
      (3) POV TRAVEL. POV travel is not encouraged. If driving or riding in a POV, you must notify your
detachment and coordinate your anticipated arrival date and time.
           (a) If traveling by POV, you should arrive at your FTU not earlier than but as close as possible to 1000
hours on the authorized travel day. Arrive no later than 1400 hours local time. Plan accordingly for time to obtain
a base pass. If you arrive prior to the authorized travel day, you will be responsible for your own accommodations.
           (b) Incidents (accidents, tickets, etc.) occurring while traveling to FT must be reported during in-
processing. Incidents while traveling from FT will be reported to your detachment. You should be prepared to
provide the following information:
                1. The location and time of the incident.
                2. The name and address of any other person(s) involved.
                3. The name and address of any witness.
                4. The license tag numbers and make of the vehicle(s) involved.
                5. Any other pertinent details concerning the incident.

                                                            8
            (c) You should call home one final time prior to entering the base to let your loved ones know you
arrived safely at FT. Telephones are off-limits upon arrival at FT.
           (d) Driving on base is a privilege and you must satisfy all requirements prior to being allowed to enter the
base. You must bring a valid driver’s license, proof of automobile insurance (minimum requirement for the state in
which automobile is registered), state vehicle registration, and if the vehicle is not yours, you must have notarized,
written permission from the vehicle owner.
           (e) Your POV will be parked in a designated area and locked during FT. Do not leave items of value
where they can be seen. You may want to leave your windows down ¼ inch or purchase a sunscreen or car cover to
prevent heat damage to the interior.
           (f) You must turn-in your automobile keys during in-processing; they will be secured with your FTO for
the duration of FT. Your POV is off-limits during FT.
           (g) You will be reimbursed at either the current mileage rate or the cost of the government ticket
(whichever is less). However, you will not be reimbursed for mileage if you are a passenger in an auto or aircraft
operated by another individual (active duty, cadet, etc.) who will receive travel allowances.

CHAPTER 3: UNIFORMS, CLOTHING, AND SUPPLIES

1. GENERAL GUIDELINES. Your detachment will issue all uniform items needed for FT. Other items will be
issued to you at FT. All issued (uniform and equipment) items are your responsibility; you will be liable for their
replacement. You will be required to bring certain additional items at your own expense.

   a. Civilian Clothing. Wear sensible, comfortable clothing while traveling to and from FT. Civilian clothing
must present a professional appearance. Do not wear clothing that is too loose, too tight, or too revealing (no tank
tops, halter tops, mini-skirts, ragged jeans, cut-offs, flip-flops, etc.). Also, limit the amount of civilian clothing you
bring. You only need one set of civilian clothes to depart FT.

   b. Grooming Standards. All cadets must comply with AFI 36-2903 and AFOATSI 36-2008.

      (1) Each cadet must maintain his/her personal hygiene and shower at least once per day. Showers are
encouraged whenever Personal Hygiene (PH) time is scheduled, and cadets must wash hands after using the latrine.

       (2) Each cadet must mark all undergarments, towels and washcloths with a permanent clothing marker to
ensure proper hygiene. Mark clothing using the following convention: first letter of last name followed by last four
digits of your social security number (for example, P1234).

       (3) Female cadets participating in JETO will not wear make-up. Additionally, female cadets must ensure that,
when helmets are worn, hair will not extend below the bottom of the collar; nor should it be so bulky that the helmet
does not fit properly. Earrings, pins, wigs, hairpieces, ornaments, barrettes, clips and other hair fasteners made of
leather, plastic, or metal are not authorized.

    c. Uniforms. Military uniforms must be worn in accordance with AFI 36-2903, Dress and Personal Appearance
of Air Force Personnel, and AFOATSI 36-2008, AFROTC Senior Uniforms and Insignia.

   d. Caps. All caps must be clean and fit properly.

       (1) When not worn or stored, flight caps will be tucked under the left side of the belt between the first and
second belt loops. The cap will be flush with the top edge of the belt with the GMC insignia facing out and the open
end of the cap facing the pocket.

       (2) The BDU cap will be placed inside the left cargo pocket if not being worn. The cap will not be visible
while in the pocket.

   e. Canteens. A full canteen is always worn with BDUs and PTUs unless otherwise directed.

      (1) Wear the web belt so that the canteen is centered at the small of the back. While in blues, remove the
canteen from the web belt and carry the canteen in the left hand.
       (2) When sitting, store your canteen and web belt under the seat and even with the front of the chair.

   f. Accessories. Sunglasses are not authorized at FT.

    g. Sleepwear. As a minimum, your sleepwear will consist of the PT shorts and PT T-shirt. Cadets may wear
flip-flops to visit the latrine. Otherwise, proper military uniforms must be worn at all times.

    h. Jewelry. In the interest of safety, jewelry will not be worn at any time with the following exceptions:
religious items, medical alert necklaces/bracelets, and wedding rings/bands. These items must be worn in accordance
with AFI 36-2903. Store jewelry in the personal area of the security drawer (Chapter 9). FTOs will prescribe the
activities during which watches may be worn and the individual(s) who may wear them. Hourly chimes and alarms
on watches will be turned off at all times.

2. UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS. Make sure your uniforms are serviceable, fit properly, and are free of cables
(loose strings). Ensure your shoes and boots are broken in to prevent blisters. Blisters are one of the main reasons
cadets miss training. As a minimum, your detachment will issue you the items in Table 3-1 or 3-2, as applicable.

CHAPTER 4: SAFETY, DISASTER PREPAREDNESS, AND FIRST AID

1. GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR SAFETY. Because FT is an active environment, there is always the potential
for mishaps. If you notice any safety hazards, report them to the flight safety officer, CTA or FTO immediately.
Also, if you are admitted to the hospital for any reason, you must ensure the FT staff is informed.

    a. Leave stairwell and entrance/exit lights on between sunset and sunrise. If you notice a light out, report it to
the flight safety officer.

   b. “Horseplay” or double-timing in buildings or on fire escapes is forbidden. Use handrails in stairwells.

   c. Shoe polish and edge dressing are the only flammable materials allowed in the dorm.

   d. Never place a hot (or warm) appliance in your wall locker.

   e. Secure eyeglasses (if applicable) to head with an approved eyeglass strap (BDU and PT uniform only).

   f. Ensure all locker drawers and doors are closed during sleeping hours.

   g. Do not clean, polish, or handle the fire alarms or smoke detectors. Use only the “issue” floor wax and wax
   removers on floors. Do not purchase cleaning supplies; store-bought cleaning products are prohibited during FT.

2. DORMITORY EMERGENCIES. Familiarize yourself with the emergency fire procedures and building
evacuation plans. Know the location of fire alarms and fire extinguishers.

   a. Fire. In the event of a fire, pull the fire alarm, shout, “FIRE, FIRE, FIRE” and evacuate the building
immediately. The first cadet out of the building will take control of the flight until relieved by the FLT/CC or CD.
Send the second cadet out of the building to inform the CSS section, SDO, or CCQ of a fire. The last cadet out will
close and secure the evacuation door. NOTE: If you are undressed, do not stop to put on clothes; wrap yourself in a
blanket and put on any hard-soled shoes. If the emergency takes place after dark, use your flashlight!

    b. Gas Leak. In the event of a gas leak, shout “GAS, GAS, GAS” and evacuate immediately. Do not pull the
fire alarm, use the telephone, or turn on lights. These devices may cause a spark that could ignite the leaking gas.
Follow all other evacuation procedures as stated in paragraph 2a (above).

    c. Fire or Gas Leak Drill. Authorized personnel will notify you of a fire or gas leak drill. Follow the same
procedures as the actual situation; however, once notified of the drill, yell “EXERCISE, EXERCISE, EXERCISE”
before and after you yell “GAS” or “FIRE.” Also, unless authorized personnel direct you to do so, DO NOT pull
the alarm.

   d. Bomb Threat. A bomb threat may be relayed orally or in writing and must be taken seriously. If you
receive a bomb threat, evacuate the building immediately (follow procedures for a gas leak) and notify any staff
member. DO NOT use the fire alarm, telephone, or light switch because one of these may be the detonating device.
       (1) An oral threat may be relayed over the phone, in person, or via any audio device. If the threat is received
by phone, DO NOT hang up (even if the caller does). Try to remember important details of the conversation, such
as the caller’s gender, noticeable accents, unusual background noises, etc.
      (2) If you receive a written threat, immediately pass it on to any staff member and evacuate the area.
      (3) In the event you observe someone placing a device or suspicious package in the area, DO NOT attempt to
apprehend the person. Remember the location of the package and record a physical description of the individual.
Notify your FTO or another staff member immediately and prepare the flight for evacuation.




                                                         14
3. PROPERTY SECURITY. Security of personal valuables and government property is paramount. To help
secure the premises, you must notify the FT staff of any unauthorized persons in the area.

   a. Personal Valuables. It is your responsibility to secure your money and valuables. You should not bring
valuable items to FT. Keep any such items locked in your security drawer at all times. Report thefts or losses to
your FTO immediately. Security violations will be dealt with harshly at FT. If you are found guilty of an infraction,
you will be counseled and possibly dismissed from FT.

   b. Government Property. You will be accountable for all property (including uniforms) assigned to you until
the items are returned or another individual signs for them. You must maintain all property in good condition – do
not deface, tear, or disassemble. Do not move equipment without permission and report all breakage or damage.

4. DISASTER PREPAREDNESS. There is always the potential for natural disasters such as tornadoes or
hurricanes, or man-made disasters such as bombs or fires. If a disaster does occur, do not panic. Like other military
installations, your FT site has a plan and is ready for any emergency. During an emergency, you should proceed to
your assigned shelter, take cover in the nearest permanent concrete structure, or find the lowest available area and
keep your head covered. You must remain in your location until you receive the all-clear signal.

5. WET BULB GLOBE TEMPERATURE (WBGT). The WBGT is a combination of climatic factors
identifying what the outside air “feels like” versus what the actual temperature is. During the summer months, the
local weather forecaster may refer to the WBGT as the “heat index.” At FT, a series of colored flags (white through
black) corresponding to the WBGT informs the staff of activities that may not be safe due to the conditions.

6. HEAT STRESS. Due to the physical nature of training, heat and heat indexes are always a concern. To combat
the effects of heat, you must actively replace the water and electrolytes your body loses through perspiring. Drink ½
to 1 quart of water per hour for no more than 12 quarts a day or more than 1 ½ quarts an hour for water
replacement. Rapid ingestion of large amounts of water (more than 1 ½ quarts per hour) can lead to acute water
intoxication. The preferred method of electrolyte replacement is a balanced diet. Salt food to taste but do not add
additional salt. Sports drinks are acceptable interim measures but should not substitute for meals. Early signs of
heat stress disorders include dizziness, headache, dry mouth, unsteady walk, weakness and muscle cramps. If you
feel or note anyone else exhibiting these signs, notify the closest staff member immediately. Take the following
actions: remove individual from training; rest individual in shade; take (or give) sips of water. If signs or symptoms
do not improve after 30 minutes, transport to nearest medical facility. If signs/symptoms worsen, call an ambulance.
Immediate action must be taken if the following (more advanced) signs of heat stress disorder occur: hot body, high
temperature, confusion, unresponsiveness, coma, vomiting, involuntary bowel movement, convolutions, and weak or
rapid pulse. Call an ambulance, take the same actions for early signs, and have the individual lay with feet elevated.
If skin is hot to touch, remove as much clothing as possible, pour cool water and fan.

7. FIRST AID. While at FT, you will have access to professional medical care if needed. However, there may be
situations when emergency medical care is unavailable. In these situations, it may be necessary to administer first
aid or “buddy care” until the appropriate medical attention is available. In addition to the heat-related conditions
above, the following conditions may arise:

   a. Blisters. Friction is the specific cause of blisters, the most common FT-related injury. Soft feet, coupled with
skin stress and unsuitable shoes and/or wet socks, can produce severe blisters. As a result of friction acting on the
skin, fluid collects under the skin’s surface at the “hot spot.” Blisters may be clear or watery; if deeper tissues have
been affected, they may contain blood.
       (1) Protect against unnatural friction by applying talcum powder or petroleum jelly to the skin before putting
on socks. Wearing tubular socks or two pairs of socks during activities can also help guard against blisters. Keep
your feet clean and dry at all times. If your socks get wet, change them as soon as possible.
         (2) If prevention fails and a blister forms, clean it, apply a sterile bandage, and leave it alone for 24 hours. If
the blister is large, thoroughly clean the area, make a small opening near the edge with a sharp sterile instrument, and
drain the fluid with gentle pressure. Once drained, clean the area again and cover with an antibiotic ointment.
        (3) Seek appropriate medical attention, if necessary.


                                                            15
    b. Insect Bites. Although usually not a major health consideration, an insect bite can be extremely painful and
in rare cases may cause a severe reaction. Most insect bites may be avoided by using insect repellent, rolling down
sleeves and blousing boots in wooded areas. For severe reactions, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
       (1) Ants, Bedbugs, Chiggers, and Mosquitoes. Wash the bite area thoroughly with soap and cool water. To
control swelling, cover the bite with a very cold wet cloth.
       (2) Ticks. Ticks are known to carry various illnesses. Remove imbedded ticks immediately with protected
fingertips or tweezers. Scrub the area with soap and water for 5 minutes and search the entire body for additional
ticks. If a fever, headache, or chills develop, seek medical attention.
      (3) Bees, Wasps, and Hornets. Treat the same as above. Also, remove the stinging apparatus.
       (4) Scorpions and Spiders. A scorpion or spider bite can cause severe allergic reactions. In the event of a
bite, be able to describe the insect. Position the victim’s body to ensure the bite is below heart level. Keep victim
quiet, warm, and watch for breathing difficulties. Apply a very cold, wet cloth to the affected area and seek
immediate medical attention.

  c. Plant Poisoning. Although swallowed plant poisonings are rare at FT, contact poisonings are fairly common.
Most contact poisonings result from encounters with Common Poison Ivy, Western Poison Oak, and Poison Sumac.
      (1) Symptoms of exposure may not begin for 48 hours after exposure and may include: a severe rash with
redness, blisters, swelling, burning, itching, and high fever.
      (2) To treat, carefully remove contaminated clothing and wash the exposed area thoroughly with mild soap
and water. Apply rubbing alcohol and calamine lotion to control the itching. If a severe reaction occurs, seek
medical help.

   d. Animal Bites. Because much of FT is conducted outdoors, there is always a possibility of an animal bite,
though this is rare. If an animal bite occurs, follow these procedures: First, control the bleeding. Flush the wound
immediately with cool running water to remove saliva and cleanse thoroughly with mild soap for 5 minutes. Cover
the site with a sterile pad or clean cloth and instruct the victim not to move the affected area. Contact medical
personnel or FT staff as soon as possible!

    e. Snakebites. All snakebites (poisonous or nonpoisonous) should have immediate medical attention – be sure to
get a good identification of the snake (color, designs, head shape, sounds, etc.).
        (1) Do not give sedatives, aspirin, or any other medication to relieve pain. Also, do not apply cold
compresses, ice, chemical ice packs, or any other methods of cold therapy. Have the victim lie down and keep as
still and calm as possible. Adjust the victim’s body so that the bite site is below heart level. It is important to be
alert for breathing difficulties and be prepared to treat for shock.
       (2) Mild to moderate snake bite symptoms include mild swelling or discoloration, mild pain with a tingling
sensation at the bite site, rapid pulse, weakness, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, and shortness of breath.
       (3) Severe snakebite symptoms include rapid swelling, numbness, severe pain at the bite site, pinpoint pupils,
slurred speech, shock, convulsions, paralysis, unconsciousness, and no breathing or pulse.
      (4) Contact medical personnel or FT staff as soon as possible.

   f. Shock. This generally occurs to some degree after an injury, and when severe, can cause death.
       (1) Symptoms of shock may include a dazed or confused look and, depending on the injury, the cadet may be
pale or flushed. Breathing will be irregular or weak, vomiting may occur, and the person may lose consciousness.
       (2) Have the cadet lie on their back; keep the head level or slightly elevated above the body. Loosen the
person’s clothing around the chest and neck. If the skin is pale and cool, cover the person with one or more blankets
to provide warmth--be careful not to overheat. If the skin is hot and red, apply towels or napkins soaked in cool
water until the skin returns to normal temperature. Never give a person in severe shock anything to eat or drink!

CHAPTER 5: HONOR CODE AND PROFESSIONAL VALUES

1. THE CADET HONOR CODE. We will not lie, steal, or cheat, nor tolerate among us anyone who does." The
purpose of the Honor Code is to foster an environment based upon a personal sense of honesty and integrity.
Implementation of the Honor Code means you will be trusted to do what is right and must confront those who violate
these standards. An honor code violation will result in mandatory counseling and possible dismissal from FT. If you
think a violation has occurred or if you have a question about the Honor Code, talk to your FTO.

    a. Lying. Lying is any statement of untruth, which is meant to deceive or mislead. One example of lying at FT
is intentionally signing in at an improper time in order to avoid a regulation violation.

   b. Stealing. Anyone who wrongfully takes, obtains, or withholds someone else's property with the intent to
temporarily or permanently deprive another of such property is guilty of stealing.

    c. Cheating. In essence, cheating is taking unfair advantage of another. Cheating violates the competitive sense
of "fair play."

   d. Toleration. Toleration means enduring without complaint. If you know one cadet has stolen from another
cadet and you fail to report or confront the matter, you may be guilty of toleration.

2. CORE VALUES. In using the Honor Code, AFROTC is looking to develop officers with character or, more
specifically, to produce leaders for the Air Force and build better citizens for America. AFROTC expects to produce
officers with the following core values:

    a. Integrity First. Officers with forthright integrity voluntarily decide the right thing to do and do it in both
their professional and private lives. They do not choose the right thing because of a calculation of what is most
advantageous to themselves, but because of a consistent and spontaneous inclination to do the right thing. Their
inclination to do right is consistently followed by actually doing what they believe they should do and taking
responsibility for their choices. In other words, persons of integrity “walk their talk.”

    b. Service Before Self. Officers who are selfless in service to their country, the Air Force, and their
subordinates know how to prioritize their loyalties so that their highest loyalty is to the moral principles reflected in
the Constitution, then to the profession of arms, then to the mission, and lastly to individuals. People who serve
selflessly resist the natural tendency to focus exclusively on self-serving desires and, therefore, do not take advantage
of situations for personal pleasure, gain, or safety at the expense of the unit or mission. They share in the danger,
hardships, and discomforts of subordinates. Their rank is shown by their commitment to duty and responsibility to
others rather than claims of personal privilege or advantage.

   c. Excellence In All We Do. Officers who are committed to excellence in the performance of their personal and
professional responsibilities strive to do their best in everything they are capable of accomplishing. They are
responsible for performing effectively, both personally and professionally. They base their self-esteem and sense of
accomplishment not on how their accomplishments compare with others but on how they measure up compared to a
realistic appraisal of what they are capable of accomplishing.




                                                           17
CHAPTER 6: RULES AND REGULATIONS

1. DISCIPLINE. By attending FT, you agree to obey the regulations of the Air Force and any lawful orders the
FT staff give. An infraction occurs when a cadet, who through design, neglect, or failure to perform duty, violates
regulations or commits an act prejudicial to good order and military discipline.
2. PROHIBITIONS. The following rules apply for the duration of FT to include JETO. Violations of these rules
are severe breaches in discipline and will be dealt with harshly. Mandatory actions will include counseling by the FT
staff and/or dismissal from FT.

    WHILE AT FIELD TRAINING, CADETS ARE RESTRICTED FROM:
    a. Consuming alcohol
    b. Using illegal or unauthorized prescription drugs or substances
    c. Possessing items widely considered as weapons (any knife, firearms, explosives, etc.)

    t. Entering the flight storage area without authorization from your FTO
    u. Having visitors at any time (including Chapel services)
    v. Departing the FTU prior to TD-29 of a 4-week FTU or TD-43 of a 6 week FTU (see note5)
   TABLE 6-1. FT Prohibitions

    Note1: MREs have one set of matches each, which must be returned following the meal; the FLT/CD will collect
all match sets following the meal and turn them in to the respective FTO or CTA.
   Note2: The telephone in the orderly room is for official use only. The CSS section, SDO, or CCQ will only
accept emergency calls.
    Note3: Each base has off-limits areas (flight line, CATM range, etc.). You are not permitted in these restricted
areas except during training and with an authorized escort. Additional off-limits areas include: base housing;
permanent party or FT staff living areas; commissary; base service station; Class Six; Officer’s Club; NCO Club; all
dining areas (Burger King, pizza parlor, community center, and snack bars); unused dorms, bays, or rooms; exterior
fire escape stairs (except in an emergency) and patios; and any additional FT/CC-designated areas.
    Note4: Cadets must always travel in pairs. If you need to be escorted back from the clinic, for example, contact
the CSS; do not transit alone.
    Note5: Except under emergency circumstances (such as a death in the immediate family coordinated through the
American Red Cross), cadets will not be allowed to depart FT prior to TD-29 /-43 under any circumstances. Family
in the local area, weddings, college/university enrollments, etc. are not emergency circumstances.




                                                         18
3. DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. The Air Force does not tolerate the use of illegal drugs or chemicals. Failure to
divulge drug use will result in disciplinary action and may prevent your entry into the POC. While at FT, the FT/CC
will schedule canine drug sweeps of the dorms. Cadets at FT are strictly prohibited from consuming any alcoholic
beverages, regardless of age or situation. Violation of this policy will result in automatic dismissal.

4. CADET MEDICATIONS

    a. During in-processing, the CSS will collect any non-prescription drugs that may cause drowsiness or
enhance/degrade performance. Although we recommend that you not bring any medications to FT, you will be
allowed to keep items such as aspirin, Tylenol, Midol, over-the-counter antacids, general multi-purpose vitamins,
and prescription medications. The FT/CC will determine the disposition and/or management policy for any items
that do not fall into the above categories or about which the physical effects are unknown. Herbal supplements will
not be allowed.

   b. Cadets with prescription medications (other than birth control pills) must have a physician’s statement
detailing any/all side effects. If the medication may hinder completion of FT requirements or PT, the cadet may be
sent home without prejudice (see Chapter 15, paragraph 2).
      (1) Cadets without a doctor’s statement will report to the CSS the next morning for medical consultation.
       (2) If the medication must be taken the first evening (TD-0), it will be allowed; however, the cadet must report
to the CSS the following morning to request medical consultation.
      (3) Secure authorized medications and do not allow other cadets to use them.

   c. Cadets who require regular, scheduled maintenance shots, such as Depo-Provera, must bring a doctor’s note
detailing any/all side effects. The note must be presented during in-processing and indicate how often the shots are
required and when the next scheduled injection is due. Depending upon the type of medication, the cadet may be
responsible for the cost of the injection.

   d. Medications received in the mail are not authorized without proper medical coordination.

   e. Cadets who receive prescription medication during FT, will notify the CSS and their FTO.

5. FORMS. The following forms are used to document adherence to FT standards.
   a. AETC Form 341, Excellence/Discrepancy Report (Attachment 1). The AETC Form 341 is used for “on the
spot“ counseling and documents extraordinary performance in any area of FT. When used for a discrepancy, staff
members are specifically documenting a deficiency in military conduct, training, or discipline.
      (1) Cadets must have three AETC Form 341s on their person at all times.
       (2) Multiple discrepancies may be recorded on the AETC Form 341. The date on the form should reflect the
training day such as “TD-3” rather than the Julian/calendar date.
       (3) FT staff members issuing discrepancies will personally annotate a cadet’s AETC Form 341 with a
description of the discrepancy (or discrepancies), flight/office information, and signature. The FT staff member will
either deliver the form to the FTO or place the form in the respective FTO inbox.
      (4) Cadets who receive multiple discrepancies during FT will be counseled by their FTO with the AFOATS
Form 17. Any subsequent discrepancies will be referred to the FT/DO, who will make a retain/release
recommendation to the FT/CC.
   b. AFOATS Form 84, Dormitory Checklist of Authorized Items (Male) (Attachment 2)
   c. AFOATS Form 84-1, Dormitory Checklist of Authorized Items (Female) (Attachment 3)
    d. AFOATS Form 85, Squadron Area Inspection Report (Attachment 4); The AFOATS Form 85 is only issued to
the SQ/CC and must be turned in to the respective FTO prior to CTQ.



                                                          19
6. MILITARY DECORUM. The rules of military decorum are founded on customs and traditions. The
responsibility for military decorum is a mutual one in which the junior initiates the act of courtesy and politeness and
the senior responds with like courtesy and politeness.

   a. Titles. Use appropriate military courtesies when greeting military members. Always use full rank and last
name if you recognize the member or by “Sir or Ma'am” as appropriate. The following examples apply:
      (1) “Good morning, Lieutenant Colonel Truslow.”
       (2) “Good afternoon, CTA Graddon.”
       (3) “Good evening, Master Sergeant Bendolph.”
       (4) Greet groups of officers as appropriate, ”Good morning (afternoon or evening) officers”
       (5) Greet groups of CTAs as appropriate, “Good morning (afternoon or evening) CTAs"
       (6) Greet groups of NCOs as appropriate “Good morning (afternoon or evening) ladies and (or) gentlemen).”
       (7) Greet mixed groups (officers, CTAs, NCOs, males, females) appropriately as “ladies and (or) gentlemen.”
       (8) Address other cadets as “Cadet (last name).” The FT staff will address cadets in this same manner.

   b. Reporting
       (1) When reporting to an officer or CTA in his/her office, knock twice on the door. When told to enter, walk
directly (squaring any corners) to within two paces of the desk, come to attention (eyes caged forward), and salute.
Hold your salute until it is returned and remain standing at attention until you are dismissed or told to be seated.
       (2) If you have been directed to report, you will state, “Sir (Ma’am), Cadet (last name) reports as ordered.”
       (3) If you are reporting on your own, you will state appropriately:
             (a) “Sir (Ma’am), Cadet (last name) reports to ask a question.”
             (b) “Sir (Ma’am), Cadet (last name) reports to make a statement.”
        (4) At the end of the conversation ask, “Will that be all, Sir (Ma’am)?” The officer will acknowledge; then
from the same location you reported in, salute and state, “Good morning (afternoon or evening), Sir (Ma’am).”
After your salute is returned, drop your salute, execute the proper facing movement and depart. NOTE: If the officer
states, “That will be all” or “You are dismissed” before you ask, “Will that be all, Sir (Ma’am),” then do not ask
that question; just salute and render the appropriate exit greeting such as, “Good evening, Ma’am.”

   c. Respect towards FT cadre
        (1) Use one of the following seven basic responses as appropriate to begin speaking to, rendering a greeting
to, respond to a direct question from or as instructed by a staff member:

          (a) “Yes, Sir (Ma’am).”
          (b) “No, Sir (Ma’am).”
          (c) “No excuse, Sir (Ma’am).”
          (d) “Sir (Ma’am), I do not know.”
          (e) “Sir (Ma’am), I do not understand.”
          (f) “Sir (Ma’am), may I make a statement?”
          (g) “Sir (Ma’am), may I ask a question?”

      (2) Cadets are not authorized to use acronyms during FT. Exception: cadets may use the term CTA when
addressing, greeting, or referring to a specific person.


                                                           20
      (3) If you give an incorrect response to a question or make an inaccurate statement, you should correct
yourself by stating, ”Correction please, Sir (Ma’am)” and begin again.
     (4) If you need to excuse yourself to pass by or through an individual or group of individuals, politely state,
“Pardon me please, Sir (Ma’am).”
        (5) During an academic session or briefing, stand and say “Sir/Ma’am, Cadet (last name), (your phonetic
flight designation) flight” prior to asking a question or making a statement.
       (6) When an officer enters the room (bay or area) come to attention and remain standing until otherwise
directed or the officer leaves. The first cadet to see an officer enter an area will command “Room (Bay or Area),
ATTENTION;” however, if another officer of equal or higher rank is already present, no such command will be
given. When an officer leaves the area, someone will call the room to attention unless an officer of equal or higher
grade remains in the area. CTAs will be treated in the same manner.
       (7) If an officer or CTA is about to pass you in the hallway, halt (if moving), come to attention, place your
heels to the wall, allow them to pass, and greet appropriately, i.e., “Good morning (afternoon or evening) Sir
(Ma’am),” and then carry on. If wearing a canteen, come to attention as near to the wall as possible without hurting
yourself or damaging the wall or canteen. When in stairwells, render the proper greeting but do not stop moving.
   d. Saluting
        (1) The hand salute is rendered from the position of attention while standing or walking. Salute and render a
verbal greeting when approaching or departing the company of an officer or CTA. An officer may return salute from
a sitting position when a junior member is reporting.
       (2) Render your salute upon recognition of [or six to 12 paces from] the senior person. Hold your salute until
the person has passed by or returned the salute. Accompany your salute with an appropriate greeting. If both your
hands are full, simply render a verbal greeting.
       (3) If at double-time, execute quick-time, render a salute and verbal greeting and then resume double-time
once your salute is returned. All cadets not in formation will salute and greet officers and CTAs. If in formation and
at double-time, the formation commander may simply render a verbal greeting rather than bring the formation to
quick-time to salute.
       (4) Salute all occupied staff cars with front license plates indicating senior officers and occupied USAF staff
cars (vehicles with white tops).
      (5) Formation commanders will render a salute and verbal greeting across the formation.
       (6) All outside areas are normally considered salute areas. Competitive sports fields, PT areas, drill pads, the
LRC and the confidence course are non-salute areas only while formal activities or practices are in progress. Cadets
will salute superiors when reporting in and out during these activities or when reporting to the penalty box.
    e. Bus Protocol. Cadets will fill busses from back to front with two cadets (unless otherwise directed) in each
seat. Sit at the position of attention and read your Handbook of Warrior Knowledge. You may rest your hands on
the seat in front of you for safety.

7. DISCRIMINATION AND SEXUAL HARASSMENT
   a. The Air Force has a zero tolerance policy towards discrimination and sexual harassment.
      (1) Discrimination is defined as any action that unlawfully or unjustly results in unequal treatment of persons
or groups based on race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, and, if civilian, handicapping conditions, for
which distinctions are not supported by legal or rational considerations.
      (2) Sexual harassment is defined as a form of sex discrimination that involves unwelcome sexual advances,
requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature (see Attachment 5).
   b. If at any time during FT you feel you are a victim of discrimination or sexual harassment (whether committed
by a staff member, CTA, fellow cadet, or host base personnel), notify any FT staff member immediately.




                                                          21

2. CALL-TO-QUARTERS (CTQ). CTQ is free from constructive training. Staff members may walk through the
area but will not initiate meetings with cadets. During CTQ, you must remain in the flight area and may perform
details, write letters, conduct meetings, prepare uniforms, or sleep – this is your time. Meetings concerning
additional duties or special projects will not be held during CTQ if they require staff member involvement.

3. LIGHTS OUT. You must be in your bed with all lights off (except emergency lighting) the moment Taps begins
to sound. You will not stand at attention while Taps is played. You will not leave your bed except in the event of
an emergency or to use the latrine. Talking in the latrine is prohibited after lights out. The Staff Duty Officer
(SDO) and the CCQ or COD will conduct regular bed checks to ensure all cadets are accounted for.

4. SIGNING OUT/IN. You must sign an AFOATS Form 82, Student Sign Out/In Register, anytime you will miss
activities on the schedule, or when proceeding anywhere without your flight. Always consult your FTO or CTA and
sign out prior to proceeding to any medical treatment. Ensure times are accurate to the minute. If there is a line of
cadets waiting to sign out or in (to attend religious services for example), enter the time you joined the line. It is
your responsibility to return to quarters prior to CTQ. If you cannot return on time, notify the COD or CCQ.

5. MEDICAL TREATMENT. While at FT, all medical treatment will be administered by qualified medical
personnel either at the FTU or a medical treatment facility. If you require medical care, notify your FTO. If you
require treatment after duty hours, report to the CSS. NOTE: Disciplinary action may be taken against any cadet
incapacitated for duty due to misconduct or neglect.



                                                         22
6. FORMATIONS
   a. Groups with two or more cadets will march two abreast, keeping in step. If a group has four or less members,
the cadet in charge will be at the right rear and all cadets will render salutes. If a group has five or more members,
the cadet in charge will march on the traffic side no more than four paces from the unit, will salute for the entire
group, and will march even with the last rank.
   b. Flights will march in formation to and from all locations. “Jodies” are not authorized until after the first
PFT and until authorized by the FT/COC. If authorized, “Jodies” must be in good taste. Respect areas where
persons may be sleeping, testing or working.
    c. When in transit, cadets should march on the right using troop walks or sidewalks. If troop walks or sidewalks
are not available, formations will march on the left side of the road facing oncoming traffic. Cadets will march at
attention and square corners at all times.
  d. Cadets will double-time when wearing the PTU, except within 30 minutes after a meal. After the first
PFT, cadets may also double-time when wearing BDUs (at the discretion of the FTO or CTA).
    e. Cadets will not walk on the grass unless it is the destination area (clean-up area, formation area, etc.). When
traveling over grassy areas (parade fields excluded), cadets will march at ease. Cadets will use guidon stands when
available and will never spike the guidon into the ground.
    f. All cadets will carry flashlights and safety gear when traveling before dawn and after dusk. Ensure flashlights
are fully operational prior to departing the flight area. Cadets in the outer-right-file of a group/formation will carry
flashlights with the outside (right) hand. All other cadets will carry them in the left hand.
   g. Cadets do not have the authority to place flights “at ease” or “at rest” at any time. If a flight member
wishes to address the flight, he/she must first request permission from the FLT/CC to address the flight and then do
so from the position of attention. The flight will also be at the position of attention. Individual flight members
cannot address the flight while the flight is in transit. However, flight members may request [from the FLT/CC]
permission to ask a question or to make a statement in order to address a safety concern.

7. ROAD GUARD PROCEDURES. On base, formations have the right of way. Formations with ten or more
members will post road guards at every intersection. Do not stagnate traffic; allow oncoming cars to pass before
posting road guards. If circumstances require marching on the right side of the road, do not overtake moving traffic.
Two road guards will march six paces in front of the flight, and two will march six paces in back. Road guards and
formation commanders will wear reflective vests or sleevelets.
        (a) Prior to entering an intersection, the FLT/CC will command, “Flight, Halt” and “Cover”. When the
intersection is clear, the FLT/CC will move briskly to the middle of the intersection, execute an about face, and
command “2 (3 or 4, depending on the number of lanes of traffic) road guards out.” The road guards will fall out at
double-time to the appropriate location in the intersection, execute a proper facing movement to face oncoming
traffic, then move to a modified position of parade rest with their right hand palm out (or during periods of reduced
visibility with the flashlight pointed downward and stationary).
      (b) When the road guards are posted correctly, the FLT/CC will direct the formation through the intersection
by commanding, “Forward, March”. At this time, the rear road guards will proceed to “tap out” the forward road
guards, who will resume their positions to the front of the flight. Road guards will move at an adjutant’s pace when
wearing blues and will double time in BDUs or PTUs.
        (c) As the front rank of the flight passes the FLT/CC, he/she will execute a left (or right) face to face the
flight. As the last rank passes the FLT/CC, he/she will execute another left (or right) face, which will enable him/her
to observe the flight safely exit the intersection.
        (d) When the flight has safely exited the intersection and there is sufficient room for the rear road guards to
resume their proper positions to the rear of the flight, the FLT/CC will command, “Flight, Halt” and “Cover”. Next,
the FLT/CC will relieve the road guards by commanding, “Road guards in”. The road guards will come to attention,
execute the appropriate facing movement (left or right) to face the flight, and then resume their proper positions in
the flight. After the road guards have cleared the intersection, the FLT/CC will move briskly out of the intersection
and assume the appropriate position to command the flight.



                                                          23
        (e) In the interest of time, and only at the direction of the FTO or CTA, the FLT/CC may forego halting the
flight after the flight has safely exited the intersection. NOTE: FTOs must ensure the flight is proficient in all aspects
of transitory drill before authorizing this maneuver.
       (f) If the Uniform of the Day (UOD) is BDUs or PTUs, the FLT/CC and road guards will enter and exit the
intersection at double-time. If the UOD is blues, the FLT/CC and road guards will move at an adjutant’s pace.
      (g) In group or squadron formations, the lead flight will send out the initial road guards. As each flight
approaches the intersection, FLT/CCs will send out road guards to relieve the preceding flight’s road guards. No
more than three individual flight formations or one squadron formation will cross intersections at one time in this
manner when one or more vehicles are waiting.
       (h) Do not move marching units through or near construction areas under any circumstances.
8. RELIGIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS. The Air Force values the free exercise of its members’ religious beliefs
and seeks to accommodate their practices within the limits of military requirements. Your FT host base has a
chaplain on call 24-hours a day and offers Protestant, Catholic, and other religious services. A representative from
the Chaplain’s Office will cover these services in depth during the Chaplain Program briefing.
9. INDIVIDUAL CADET TIME (ICT). ICT takes place in conjunction with scheduled religious activities. If you
do not attend religious services, you will have ICT. During this time, you must remain in the flight area and may
perform details, write letters, conduct meetings, or prepare uniforms. You will not lie down or sleep during ICT, and
your FTO and CTA may initiate meetings, counseling, or training as desired.

10. TELEPHONES. You are not authorized to use any telephone at any time during FT.

11. MAIL
    a. The Flight Mail Orderly (or alternate) will pick up incoming flight mail from and deposit outgoing mail into
the designated mailbox in the CSS office during the designated hours, Monday through Saturday (except holidays).
   b. Ask your parents, spouse and friends not to send “care packages” to you while at FT. Cadets are not allowed
to retain food items due to health concerns (spoilage) or environmental concerns (potential to attract rodents or
insects). Other items such as magazines must be placed in the storage area unless approved by the FTO.
      (1) Perishable foods. You may return the package to sender. If so, you will prepare the package for mailing
and pay all postage costs. You may also dispose of the food items yourself or give them to your FTO to dispose of.
       (2) Non-perishable foods. You may return the package to sender. If so, you will prepare the package and pay
all postage. You also may retain the package in the storage area until the end of FT; note however, the AF assumes
no liability for lost or stolen items.
   c. Your mailing address during FT follows:

CHAPTER 8: DINING HALL PROCEDURES.

1. GENERAL INFORMATION. The dining hall serves a nutritious, balanced diet designed for active trainees.
Cadets are encouraged to eat three square meals daily. Cadets who choose not to eat are still required to process
through the dining hall with the flight. Look at the menu before entering the serving line and process through the
line quickly. Use courtesy and etiquette when requesting items from the personnel at the serving line. You will
consume everything you take, so be reasonable when requesting food! Food will not be taken from the dining hall.
   a. If the dining hall serves 8-oz glasses, cadets will take no more than 3 glasses, 2 of which must be water. The
(optional) 3rd glass may be water, plain white milk or sports drink (Gatorade).
   b. If the dining hall serves 12-oz glasses, cadets will take no more than 2 glasses, 1 of which must be water. The
2nd glass may be water, plain white milk or sports drink (Gatorade).
   c. Drinks containing chocolate, caffeine or carbonation are off limits during FT.
   d. Snack foods (such as potato chips, granola bars, etc.) are allowed when offered “on the line” and in sufficient
quantities for the entire FTU. Desserts are off limits during FT. Condiments are off limits during FT.
   e. When Meals, Ready to Eat (MREs) or box meals are offered in lieu of normal hot meals, all items in the MRE
or box lunch are authorized for consumption. However, all food items must be consumed at the time the meal is
served and cannot be retained for later use.

2. ENTRANCE PROCEDURES
   a. Arrive at the dining hall no more than 3 minutes before the designated chow time.
   b. Cadets must wash hands prior to entering the facility. At a minimum, cadets will use Liquid Hand Gel.
   c. After halting the flight at the staging area of the dining hall, the FLT/CC will place the flight at “Parade Rest”.
   d. At the designated chow time, if the dining hall is clear for entry, the FLT/CC will call the flight to
“Attention.” The FLT/CC then commands, “Guide, secure the guidon and post the door…Key Personnel, Post.
The FLT/CC, FLT/CD, and two water monitors form a single file in this order along side the third element. Once
key personnel have posted, the FLT/CC commands “Key Personnel, Forward, March.” At this time the element
leaders are left in command of their elements.
    e. Key personnel will enter the dining hall and take their respective positions after signing in. The FLT/CC will
post as directed on TD-0 (near the cashier but out of the way of dining hall personnel) and ensure the entire flight
processes through the line. The FLT/CD will be the first to process through the chow line. The FLT/CD should also
be the first cadet to depart the dining hall and will therefore form the flight up as members exit the dining hall.
    f. LACKLAND, ELLSWORTH: The water monitors will ground gear and position themselves behind the
serving line to fill water glasses. Water monitors must wash hands before performing these duties. Water monitors
also must wear headgear behind the line and enter/exit only at the end of the tray runners.
    g. The guide position is at the entrance of the dining hall. The guide monitors the flow of cadet traffic through
the door and appropriately commands “___ flight, ___ element, prepare to enter the dining hall.” This procedure
is repeated when enough room exists inside to accommodate another element of cadets. The guide enters the dining
hall once the last element has been directed to enter the facility.
  h. The element leader assumes the position of attention before commanding “Element, Attention”, followed by
“Forward, March” and calling cadence as the element steps off.
   i. Cadets enter the dining hall one element at a time. Hats and road guard gear are removed and properly stored
upon entering the building, and sign-in is accomplished as quickly as possible. The entrance door will not remain
open, and cadets should not position themselves where exits/entrances are blocked.
    j. ELLSWORTH: the FLT/CC will direct cadets to one of the two serving lines upon entry, ensuring that no
more than 5 cadets are in each line. The FLT/CD will be the first cadet to process through the line and will sign in
for the entire flight.



                                                           25
   k. LACKLAND: cadets will assemble into one of three files (from left to right), three abreast, in front of the
sign-in station. Sign in and stand fast until the last cadet to sign-in commands “Cadets Post.” Cadets simultaneously
execute the appropriate facing movement (left or right) and proceed to a position at the rear of the established line.
   l. TYNDALL: proceed directly to the serving line upon entry. The FLT/CC will sign in for the entire flight.
The FLT/CD will be the first to process through the chow line, and the FLT/CC will be the last.
   m. The flight guide will follow the final element into the dining hall. Once the guide has signed in, the FLT/CC
will retrieve the water monitors (Lackland, Ellsworth) and follow them into the line directly behind the guide.

3. DINING HALL PROCEDURES
   a. Cadets will display proper customs and courtesies to officers and CTAs. Render the appropriate verbal
greeting without stopping.
    b. Cadets will be at the position of attention at all times. Cadets will make proper facing movements and square
all corners except while carrying a “stocked” tray.
   c. Once in the serving line, cadets will secure a food tray and place their hands to the inside of the tray
(modified position of attention). The tray will be grounded to the runner and cadets will move through line by
executing a right (or left) step. Proceed through the line in this manner until choosing your last item on the line.
Cadets are required to eat at the tables located on the same side of the dining hall where they entered. Exit from the
same side as well.
   d. ELLSWORTH, TYNDALL: cadets may leave the main serving line and proceed to the salad bar line. Once
cadets have selected all food items, they will proceed through the cashier line.
   e. Cadets will fill the tables at dining hall as instructed on TD-0. Travel down columns only, not across rows.
   f. Upon arrival to the table, ground the tray centered and flush to the edge of the table and remain at attention
until the last cadet arrives (table is filled) or 30 seconds have elapsed. The last cadet to arrive commands “Cadets,
Be Seated.” Ground equipment under seats, then move the chair and be seated. The first cadet seated will start a
watch and place it on the napkin holder at the center of the table. Time limits will be imposed. All food and drinks
must be consumed within the time constraint.
    g. Cadets who arrive at tables where cadets are already seated, but other chairs are vacant, will perform the
procedures outlined in paragraph f (above) and will start a second watch to be placed on the napkin holder. If there
is only one vacant chair remaining at the table, the cadet may be seated immediately instead of waiting 30 seconds.
   h: LACKLAND: cadets who desire items from the salad bar will, upon arrival at the table, ground their tray to
the table, immediately travel to the salad bar and then return to their table following the correct flow of traffic.
Cadets remaining at the table will stand at attention until the last cadet returns from the salad bar.
   i. Sit at the position of attention on the front half of your chair with your feet flat on the floor at a 45-degree
angle. Place your napkin on your left knee and keep your free hand on your lap. Your eyes will remain caged on
your food/plate. When you finish a beverage, turn the glass upside down on your tray.
   j. Always display proper table etiquette. DO NOT: stand to speak to staff members, chew food with your mouth
open, place your elbows on the table, rest against the back of your seat, or chew/eat while standing or walking.
    k. The first two cadets to finish eating will gather their uniform/equipment items and depart. The last two cadets
will clear the table. Each cadet will stack two trays and their contents. Glasses and silverware will go on one tray.
Garbage and other dishware will be consolidated on the other tray. After gathering all uniform/equipment items,
transport trays to the clipper (Lackland) or the rolling tray carts (Ellsworth, Tyndall) then exit the facility. Travel
down columns only and not across rows. Proceed to the end of the row of tables before cutting across to the last
column of tables to exit (Lackland).
    l. At the rolling carts (Ellsworth, Tyndall) place all glasses on the top two brown trays, silverware in the
silverware bucket, and trays in the slots below. Cadets will turn right after the dividing wall and exit through the
appropriate door, giving way to cadets carrying trays.




                                                          26
    m. Cadets will form up outside the dining hall in flight formation. Cadets will report in to the FLT/CD until the
FLT/CC relieves him/her and assumes control of the flight. Outside the dining hall, cadets will be either (1) at the
position of “attention” or (2) at “parade rest” and reading their Handbook of Warrior Knowledge, unless otherwise
instructed by a FT staff member. Cadets will not be “at ease” or “at rest” at any time outside of the dining hall.
    n. If dining at the Officer’s Club (Ellsworth), cadets will enter the building in the same manner as performed at
the dining hall. Once inside, cadets will remain at the position of attention squaring all corners until securing their
tray. Cadets will process through the chow line at a modified position of attention to select their food and proceed to
the next available table/seat. Tables will be filled from back to front as directed the first time the facility is used.
All other dining hall procedures contained in this chapter will be followed.




                                                          27
CHAPTER 9: DORMS AND BAYS

1. GENERAL INFORMATION.

   a. Housing. You will be housed by flight in an open bay at Lackland or in shared rooms at Ellsworth and
Tyndall. Female cadets will be housed separate from males. Unoccupied bays, rooms and supply closets are off-
limits unless a staff member specifically authorizes you to enter. Before entering a room (or changing room)
occupied by members of the opposite sex, cadets and staff members will announce, “Gentleman (Lady) in the area,”
and wait for the appropriate response. The cadet closest to the entrance will confirm that all cadets in the area are
properly dressed and respond, “Please Standby” if any member is not properly dressed and, “All Clear” as soon as
appropriate. Cadets will not change clothes in the presence of members of the opposite sex.
       (1) LACKLAND: Cadets will not change clothes in the bay. Use the latrine or the dayroom and keep the door
closed when changing. The dayroom door will be open at all other times.
       (2) ELLSWORTH, TYNDALL: Dorm rooms (doors and blinds) will be closed when cadets are changing
clothes. Doors will be open at a 90-degree angle, and blinds will be fully open at all other times.

   b. Inspection Order. Bays and rooms should be inspection ready during all training hours. Wastebaskets must
be emptied daily and will be completely empty during duty hours (i.e., from wake-up until CTQ).

    c. Common Areas. Common areas are those spaces which all cadets use, i.e., stairwells, hallways, dayrooms,
latrines, laundry rooms, etc. These areas must be clean and orderly at all times. Squadron Commanders will be
responsible for all squadron common areas as designated by the group staff. The group commander(s) will be
responsible for common areas inside and outside of the main administrative building (including the laundry room).
        (1) Latrine – commodes, urinals, sinks, showers and drying areas will be kept clean and dry. Toilet seats will
be displayed in the up position for male latrines and displayed down for female latrines. Toilet tissue will be neatly
rolled, i.e., not hanging down. Latrine doors will be opened 90 degrees when not in use.
      (2) Windowsills, walls, stairwells, hallways, and water faucets will be cleaned on a regular basis.
      (3) Personal or “group-purchased” commercial cleaning products are not authorized.
      (4) Pictures, posters, etc., are not authorized for display in dorm unless approved by the FTO.

   d. Energy Conservation. Turn off all lights when not in use. Turn off water faucets when not in use and report
leaks to the FTO. Windows must remain closed/locked unless a staff member directs otherwise.

2. NAME CARDS. Print your name, flight, detachment, and university in all capital letters on 3”x 5” index cards
as shown in Figure 9-1 below. Place one name card your bed frame and one on your wall locker. ELLSWORTH,
TYNDALL: Place an additional name card on the wall immediately outside/next to your room door.

3. BEDS – GENERAL GUIDELINES. Keep bed rails clean and free from dust. Items placed on bed must be
clean, dry, serviceable, folded, lint-free, and displayed tight, neat, and wrinkle-free where applicable. If an item
becomes unserviceable, bring it to an FTO or CTA’s attention. The inspection side of the bed is the side facing the
entrance to the bay/room. TYNDALL: if the sides of the beds do not or cannot face the entrance to the room, then the
inspection side will be the center area between beds. ELLSWORTH: the bed will be centered between the rear wall
of the room and the outside bathroom wall.
   a. Dust Cover Bed
       (1) Mattress Cover. Ensure mattress cover is right side out. LACKLAND, TYNDALL: place cover on
mattress with open end toward the foot end of bed. Tie strings, if possible, and tuck excess material under the
mattress. ELLSWORTH: place cover on mattress and place elastic straps over the corners of the mattress.
       (2) Bottom (First) Sheet. Drape evenly over width of mattress. Ensure the bottom edge of sheet is flush with
the foot end of mattress. Tuck excess under at the head end of mattress. Make hospital corners.
       NOTE: Making Hospital corners. First, grasp the side of sheet approximately 12 inches from the head end of
mattress; then, lay the sheet on top of the mattress, creating a 45-degree angle. Tuck excess hanging down, under
mattress. Next grasp 45-degree angle and without changing its shape, bring it down and tuck under mattress. After
sheet is completely tucked, smooth and tighten to the conformity of mattress.
       (3) Top Sheet. Drape evenly over width of mattress so that the top edge of the sheet is approximately 6 inches
from the head end of the mattress. Tuck excess under the foot end of mattress. Do not make hospital corners yet!
       (4) First Blanket. Drape the blanket evenly over width of mattress, U.S. insignia down, and narrow end of
blanket approximately six inches from the head end of mattress. Tuck the excess blanket under the foot end of
mattress. Make “Hospital Corners” with both the sheet and the blanket, together. Tuck remainder of sheet/blanket
under mattress. Smooth and tighten to mattress conformity.
       (5) Pillow and Pillowcase. Put pillow inside the case and place between the first and top sheets. Center the
length of pillow on the width of mattress, flush with the head end of mattress.
       (6) Dust Cover. Fold the blanket in half from narrow end to narrow end, US insignia inside. Drape evenly
over the head end of mattress. Single fold is approximately 24 inches from the head end of mattress. Tuck excess
blanket under the head end of mattress. Make Hospital corners. Ensure no excess blankets/sheets or strings are
hanging down under mattress.
      (7) Mattress. Center the mattress on the bed frame and ground to the head end of bed.

                                                         29
      b. White Collar Bed. Used during formal inspections. When making this bed, use instructions for “Dust
Cover Bed” up to and including the placement of the first blanket, then proceed with the following steps:
       (1) White Collar. Fold the top sheet and blanket over together to form a six inch white collar and then fold
again, so that the bottom of the six-inch collar is 24 inches from the head end of the mattress. Make hospital corners.
Tuck remaining material hanging on the sides neatly under the mattress, including white collar. After the blanket and
sheet are completely tucked, smooth and tighten to conformity of mattress.
       (2) Pillow and Pillowcase. Put pillow inside case. Center length of pillow on width of mattress, flush with the
head end of mattress. The open end of pillow case faces away from the inspection side with the excess material
neatly folded underneath.
       (3) Mattress. Center the mattress on the bed frame and ground to the head end of bed.
       (4) Extra Blankets. Place extra blanket(s) (if applicable) at the foot end of the mattress. Fold blanket(s) into
an “e” fold and display with the single fold facing the foot end of the mattress. The blanket(s) should be flush with
the foot end of the mattress. The “e” fold should be viewed from the inspection side of the bed.




       FIGURE 9-3. White Collar Bed


    c. Open-air Bed. Remove the blankets, sheets, pillow, and pillowcase from bed. Remove mattress cover only
if exchanging. Otherwise, leave cover on mattress; tie strings if possible and tuck excess material underneath.
Smooth and tighten to conformity of mattress.
   (1) Mattress. Center the mattress on the bed frame and ground to the head end of the bed.
    (2) Blankets. Fold blanket(s) not being exchanged into “e” fold (Figure 9-5) using the following procedures:
Stand on inspection side of bed and drape blanket evenly over the width of mattress. Place the narrow edges to the
left and right; U.S. insignia (if applicable), facing up. Fold the blanket in half from right to left so insignia is inside.
Second, fold the blanket in half from inspection side of bed to opposite side. Fold in thirds from left to right. When
properly folded, “e” fold will be visible when viewed from the inspection side of bed.
   (3) Placement. Stack blanket(s) on the mattress, if applicable - widest blanket on the bottom, at center aisle end
(Lackland) or at foot end (Ellsworth, Tyndall) of the bed. Flush the blanket(s) to the center aisle end (Lackland) or
foot end (Tyndall) of mattress. Ground the blankets to the bedposts. Ensure “e” fold(s) are flush with each other and
with the outermost portion of the mattress on the inspection side.
    (4) Pillow. Place pillow on top of blanket(s) centering length of pillow on the width of mattress. Flush the side
of pillow with the single fold of blanket(s) and ground to bedposts.

NOTE: The following illustration depicts how to make an “e-fold” with your blankets. The e-fold is used in the
White Collar Bed display as well as in the Open Air Bed display.




      FIGURE 9-5. Procedures for Making an “e” Fold


4. AFOATS FORM 84/FORM 84-1, Dormitory Checklist of Authorized Items (Male/Female). Cadets will
display the appropriate Form 84/84-1 Inspection Checklist on their bed from wake-up until CTQ each day. All cadet
information must be completed in on displayed forms. On the Dust Cover Bed, the form will be centered under the
dust cover with the header information (top two inches approximately) showing. On the Open Air Bed, the form will

CHAPTER 10: INSPECTIONS, EVALUATIONS, AND COUNSELING

1. INTRODUCTION. The FT staff will evaluate you through direct observation and by analyzing the results of
your performance as compared to your peers. This assessment of your performance will determine your suitability
for entry into the Professional Officer Course (POC) and your potential to commission as an Air Force officer. It
will also affect your final ranking at the detachment and therefore your choice of careers in the USAF.
2. FORMAL INSPECTIONS. You and your flight will receive two types of formal inspections: stand-by and
open ranks. Any FT staff member may conduct formal inspections.
   a. Stand-by Inspections. Stand-by inspections evaluate the condition and appearance of your quarters and
equipment.
        (1) All cadets will be at parade rest. The FLT/CC and FLT/CD will meet the inspector as he/she enters the
flight area. The FLT/CC will call the flight to attention, salute the inspector, and report, “Sir (Ma'am), ___ Flight is
prepared for inspection.” The FLT/CD will accompany the inspector and record any discrepancies on individual
cadet’s AFOATS Form 84 (Males) and 84-1 (Females).
      (2) After the inspector has finished inspecting the bays (Lackland) or rooms (Ellsworth, Tyndall), the FLT/CC
and FLT/CD will escort the inspector to the common areas. If available, the SQ/CC should accompany the inspector
during this portion of the inspection.
       (3) When the inspection is complete, the FLT/CC will salute the inspector and report, “Sir (Ma'am), all flight
areas have been inspected.” The flight will prepare for the next scheduled event upon the inspector’s departure.
The FLT/CD will consolidate discrepancies on to the discrepancy roster and turn all AFOATS Form 84 and 84-1s
into the FTO immediately after the inspection.
     (4) After the FLT/CC reviews and initials the discrepancy roster, the FLT/CD will turn it in to the FTO (NLT
CTQ on the day of the inspection.)
   b. Open Ranks Inspections. Open ranks inspections focus on military bearing and personal appearance.
       (1) Flights being inspected will march to the inspection area, position themselves at the proper location, and
stand at parade rest. When the inspector approaches, the FLT/CC will call the flight to attention, salute the inspector
and offer a verbal greeting. The inspector will direct the FLT/CC to prepare the flight for inspection at which time
the FLT/CC salutes the inspector, does an about face, and commands, “Right Face.” FLT/CC then commands,
“Count Off,” twice. The FLT/CC then executes a left face, gives the command “Open Ranks, MARCH,” and then
immediately walks at a 45-degree angle to position him/herself 3 paces to the guidon bearer’s right side facing down
the line. The FLT/CC then proceeds to align the flight starting with the 1st element and ending with the 3rd.
        (2) Once the flight is aligned, the FLT/CC positions him/herself 3 paces in front of the guidon bearer’s right
side, facing down the line, although the first element is now three paces to the left of the FLT/CC. The FLT/CC will
command “Ready Front.”
       (3) The FLT/CC takes one step forward, conducts a right face and salutes the inspector (who has positioned
him/herself immediately in front of the FLT/CC) and reports, “Sir (Ma'am),___ Flight is prepared for inspection.”
The inspector returns the salute and begins to inspect the FLT/CC. Once completed, the inspector asks the FLT/CC
to accompany him/her on the inspection.
       (4) While the FLT/CC is being inspected, the FLT/CD will take one step to the rear, conduct a right face, and
march to a position one pace to the right and one pace to the front of the guide. He/she faces down line and prepares
to record the inspection results.
       (5) After being inspected, the FLT/CC performs a left face and commands, “Second and third elements,
Parade, REST,” then takes one step forward, performs a left face to face the flight. The FLT/CC and FLT/CD will
accompany the inspector; the FLT/CD documents discrepancies on the ORI Discrepancy Roster. Inspector takes the
necessary steps forward to inspect the guidon bearer and the rest of the flight. The FLT/CC will take the necessary
steps to position him/herself to the inspector’s right and a little behind (so he/she can cage eyes and still see when the
inspector is ready to move). After completing the front inspection of each cadet, the inspector looks to the right to
signal to the FLT/CC that he/she is ready to move. Proceed down the line to the next cadet.



                                                           47
            (a) The FLT/CC precedes the inspector during the front inspection of each element. Once the inspector
has inspected the front of the last member, the FLT/CC will hesitate and allow the inspector and FLT/CD to proceed
as the rear of the element is inspected.
           (b) After inspecting the rear of each element, the inspector will turn and halt directly in front of the
element leader of the next rank. The FLT/CD will march past the inspector and resume a position following the
inspector while the FLT/CC will turn and face the second cadet (the FLT/CC is once again preceding the inspector).
       (6) As the inspector nears the end of one element, the next element leader commands his/her element to
attention. Once the inspection has begun on that element, the previous element leader places his/her element at
parade rest. This procedure is followed until completion of the inspection.
       (7) After the last element is inspected, the inspector inspects the FLT/CD and commands “POST.” The
FLT/CD will return to his/her position in the flight while the FLT/CC marches three paces beyond the front element,
halts, faces to the left (down line), and commands, “Flight, ATTENTION.” The FLT/CC then takes one step
forward, faces to the right and receives any comments from the inspector. The FLT/CC will salute and greet the
departing official appropriately, “Good morning (afternoon or evening), Sir (Ma'am).” To conclude the activity, the
FLT/CC will command “Close Ranks, MARCH” before posting three paces in front of and centered on the flight.
The flight will then be ready for the next scheduled activity.
3. INFORMAL INSPECTIONS. Unscheduled inspections are conducted by CTAs/FTOs. CTAs/FTOS will
conduct a minimum of 2 informal inspections each week. Cadets who fail an informal inspection will be re-
inspected by their FTO within 48 hours. Cadets who fail 2 inspections will receive an AFOATS Form 17 from the
FTO. Cadets who fail 3 inspections will be counseled by the FT/DO, who will make a recommendation to the
FT/CC to either retain the cadet or send the cadet home for unsatisfactory performance. Cadets who fail 4
inspections will be sent home for unsatisfactory performance.
4. DRILL EVALUATIONS. In addition to the inspections, you and your flight will also be evaluated on drill.
   a. Flight Drill Competition. A flight drill competition is typically held in conjunction with Saturday parades.
The flight drill competition consists of two parts: precision drill and special drill. Each week, two cadets will be
randomly selected to lead the flight in precision and special drill (no cadet may serve twice).
        (1) Precision drill accounts for 85 points of the drill portion for Honor Flight (see Chapter 16). It consists of a
drill sequence identified on a drill card and the AFOATS Form 204-1, Flight Drill Performance Rating Profile
(Attachment 6). The drill cards and profile sheet are strictly controlled and are given to the precision drill cadet 30
seconds before the actual performance. Flights have a maximum of 3 minutes to complete precision drill.
       (2) Special drill accounts for 15 points of the drill portion for Honor Flight and immediately follows precision
drill. The special drill cadet coordinates with the FLT D&C officer to create a drill routine using only standard
movements in AFMAN 36-2203. Flights have a maximum of 2 minutes to complete special drill.
      (3) Although each flight will have both a precision and special drill cadet, the FLT/CC is responsible for
marching the flight to the drill pad at the designated time. Upon arrival, the FLT/CC will ask the evaluator for
permission to enter the drill area.
           (a) The FLT/CC will center the flight at the front of the drill pad and state to the evaluator, “Sir (Ma'am),
___ Flight is present for drill competition.”
           (b) The precision drill cadet will assume command, preposition the flight (approx. 30 seconds), and state,
“Sir (Ma'am), ___ Flight is prepared for drill competition.” At this point, the evaluator will give the cadet a drill
card, allow 30 seconds for review, and direct the sequence to begin. The drill cadet has 3 minutes to complete the
drill sequence, reposition the flight, center him/herself three paces in front of the head judge, and state, “Sir
(Ma'am), ___ Flight has completed the drill sequence.”
            (c) If necessary, the FLT/CC will take charge of the flight and move it to the pad used for special drill.
Follow the same procedures for reporting the flight present as for precision drill. The special drill cadet will then
assume command, preposition the flight (approx. 30 seconds), and state, “Sir (Ma'am), ___ Flight is prepared for
special drill.” The cadet has 2 minutes to perform a routine, reposition the flight, center him/herself three paces in
front of the head judge, and state, “Sir (Ma'am),___ Flight has completed the drill sequence.” The FLT/CC then
assumes command and prepares the flight for the next event.

   b. Individual Drill Evaluation (IDE) – General Guidance. Cadets will be challenged to demonstrate
leadership and flight control skills while performing as FLT/CC. All cadets will be given two opportunities to
complete the IDE. The D&C CTA(s) will determine the location of drill pads based on FTU space, availability for
practice, and actual IDE performance. Drill pads will be 50’ x 50’, with boundaries marked by use of canteens,
cones, or other easily visible items.
   c. IDE Procedures. The time limit for the IDE sequence is 3 minutes. Cadets will finish the sequence, even if
the time limit is expired; however, points will be deducted from the overall score for exceeding 3 minutes. Cadets
performing the role of FLT/CC will salute the evaluator when reporting in/out. Cadets will perform one of four
random IDE cards.
       (1) The IDE sequence begins with flight on the pad. The FTO will identify the first cadet to be evaluated by
commanding “Cadet ______________, Front and Center.” The cadet properly leaves ranks, and then correctly
reports in by halting, saluting and stating, “Sir (Ma’am), ___ Flight ready for drill evaluation.”
      (2) The designated cadet (temporary FLT/CC) steps forward and receives the drill card from the FTO. Allow
the FLT/CC a reasonable amount of time to review the card and ask questions, if necessary.
      (3) The FLT/CC commands, “FALL OUT” followed by, “FALL IN,” then sizes the flight.
       (4) Time begins when FLT/CC commands the first command in the sequence and ends when the FLT/CC
reports out to the FTO. A sample standardized IDE sequence consists of the following movements:
          - ABOUT FACE
          - CHANGE STEP
          - PRESENT ARMS
          - ORDER ARMS
          - COLUMN RIGHT
          - RIGHT FLANK
          - COLUMN LEFT
          - RIGHT STEP
          - TO THE REAR MARCH
          - LEFT FLANK
          - OPEN RANKS (FLT/CC performs cursory inspection of each element, but does not align them)
          - CLOSE RANKS
NOTE: The FLT/CC must follow the drill sequence in the order given. He or she will have to insert additional
commands in order to complete the sequence properly. There are many different commands, which can be added to
achieve the same end result.
        (5) The FLT/CC reports “Sir (Ma’am), ___ Flight has completed the drill evaluation” (time ends at this
point), then steps forward and returns the drill card to the FTO. The FTO then commands the cadet to “Return to
Ranks.” The cadet returning to ranks assumes a vacant position within the flight at the end of the third, second, or
first element, in that order of priority.
      (6) The FTO will identify the next cadet to be evaluated by commanding “Cadet ________, Front and
Center,” at which point the above sequence of events repeats itself.
   d. IDE Criteria. The primary emphasis of the IDE will be on the cadet commanding the flight. The Individual
Drill Evaluation score will be recorded on the Drill Evaluation Form (see page 78), rating the following areas:
      (1) Composure/Military Bearing
      (2) Control of Formation
      (3) Time Management
      (4) Command Voice
      (5) Professionalism

5. CADET STAFF EVALUATIONS. The FT/COC evaluates Group Staff.

6. PEER EVALUATIONS. In addition to staff evaluations, you and your peers will formally evaluate one another
at least once during FT (see Figure 10-1). The FT staff may use these evaluations to target specific areas for
improvement. Be honest, fair, and use constructive criticism when evaluating your peers.

7. FINAL EVALUATION. Every aspect of your FT performance will be evaluated and recorded. Your FTO will
review this data and complete an AFOATS Form 708, Field Training Performance Report, which will be forwarded
to your detachment commander. The AFOATS Form 708 is a permanent part of your cadet record. It will help your
detachment commander determine your admission to and/or continuation in the POC and your suitability for
commissioning.

   a. The AFOATS Form 708 rates your performance in six broad categories called performance factors (PFs).
Each PF is broken down into smaller sub areas, which cover various aspects of the PF (Attachment 7).

    b. To pass your final evaluation, your overall rating must not be “Unsatisfactory,” which results when you are
rated “Unsatisfactory” in one or more sub areas on the AFOATS Form 708.

      (1) Unsatisfactory. Non-contract cadets receiving this overall rating will be released from AFROTC.
Contract cadets will be reviewed by AFROTC/RR, and may be investigated for disenrollment.

      (2) Marginal. All cadets receiving on overall Marginal rating at FT will be reviewed by their PAS to
determine whether or not they will be allowed to continue in the AFROTC program.

8. COUNSELING. During FT you will receive various counseling sessions. These sessions will provide you with
information and constructive feedback allowing you the opportunity to understand how your performance is being
perceived and if necessary, adjust that performance.

   a. Initial Counseling. Your FTO will conduct an initial counsel with you NLT TD-2. During this meeting,
your FTO will express his/her expectations for your performance. NOTE: The FTO may allow cadets to conduct
pertinent flight business while he/she is meeting individually with cadets.

   b. Mid-FT Counseling. Mid-way through FT, you will receive a mandatory counseling session from your FTO.
 During this session, your FTO will identify your observed level of preparation for Field Training and also advise
you of your current strengths and areas for improvement. For the areas for improvement, the FTO will offer you
suggestions for achieving the desired level of performance.

    c. Additional Counseling. Your FTO may schedule any additional counseling sessions he/she deems necessary
in order to clarify expectations or discuss behavior or performance concerns.
       (1) A number of items necessitate mandatory counseling by the FTO using the AFOATS Form 17 to include
security drawer violations, lights out violations, exceeding weight and body fat standards, and PFT failures. 7
       (2) The AETC Form 341 is given “on the spot” for unacceptable performance or behavior and is considered
equivalent to the AFOATS Form 17 counsel. Examples include: arriving late to reveille or retreat formations;
talking or making extraneous movements while at the position of attention; or failure to perform a particular duty
such as knowing your daily knowledge.
      (3) The FT/DO and FT/CC will counsel cadets referred as “Marginal” or “Unsatisfactory” by FTOs as well as
any cadets under investigation for significant breaches of discipline such as honor code or rules violations.

   d. Final Counseling. Your FTO will schedule you for a final counseling session no earlier than 2 days prior to
your departure from FT. During this session, your strengths and areas for improvement will be highlighted on the
AFOATS Form 708. You will also receive your final PF ratings and your academic grade (if applicable). NOTE:
The evaluation period does not end until you physically depart the FTU; your formal rating could change.

CHAPTER 11: PHYSICAL TRAINING (PT)

1. OVERVIEW. PT is an integral part of your FT experience and provides an opportunity to evaluate your physical
condition and teamwork capacity. PT may consist of any of the following: the PFT, warrior runs, calisthenics, Field
Day activities (if applicable), and Flight Sports (see Chapters 12-14). You will have PT every day. However, do not
expect to get in shape at FT – prepare ahead and arrive in peak condition.

   a. Qualifying Fitness Review (QFR). Not earlier than 30 days prior to the end of the spring term, and not later
than one day prior to departure for FT, all cadets will be administered a PFT and a weight check.

   b. Running. You should wear high quality, properly fitting running shoes to minimize blisters and injury.

   c. Physical Discipline. Physical discipline consists of AFROTC-approved repetitive exercises. It is given to
cadets as a consequence of undesired behavior. NOTE: Physical discipline is only allowed at FT. Physical discipline
may be administered any time cadets are in PTUs, BDUs, or modified BDUs per directives in AFOATSI 36-2010,
The AFROTC Field Training Program.

2. WEIGHT AND BODY FAT. All cadets will receive an official height and weight check. Cadets who do not
meet weight standards will be given a body fat measurement. Cadets must meet all standards outlined in AFOATSI
36-2007, AFROTC Weight and Fitness Programs.

3. WARM-UP EXERCISES. Warm-up exercises must be completed prior to all PT. These exercises consist of
flexibility exercises and calisthenics.

   a. Authorized Flexibility Exercises.

 FLEXIBILITY EXERCISE              PROCEDURES
 CALF STRETCHERS                   Get into the push-up position with your right leg out and your left leg over the
                                   right (feet interlocked). Slowly shift your weight back until you feel your calf
                                   muscle stretching. Hold this position for a 10-count and switch (right over left)
 GROIN STRETCH                     Sit down and pull your heels close to the buttocks. Slowly press your knees to

    b. CALISTHENICS. These exercises may be done as physical training. Underlined exercises are authorized
       for physical discipline.

 CALISTHENICS                      PROCEDURES
 ARM CIRCLES                       Place your arms straight out from your sides, rotate them counter-clockwise
                                   making a circle. Repeat in the clockwise direction.
 BICYCLE                           Lie on your back with your knees bent and interlock your hands behind your
                                   head. Touch your right elbow to your left knee and then alternate with the left
                                   elbow to right knee.
 BODY-BUILDERS                     This is an 8-count exercise. Start in the position of attention, squat down, move
                                   to the push-up position, spread your legs apart, put your legs back together, do a
                                   pushup, move back to the squat position, and return to the position of attention.
 CRUNCH                            Using the sit-up position, come up to a 10-degree angle and hold for a 10 count.
                                   Do not touch elbows to knees.
 FLUTTER KICKS                     Lie on your back and place your hands underneath your lower back. Alternate

 SIDE STRADDLE HOP /               From the position of attention, move your arms out to the side and up (one
 “JUMPING JACK”                    motion) while your legs move out, and return to the original position.

TABLE 11-2. Calisthenics

   c. Flights will form up in sequential order in the PT area. The GP/PFO or FLT/PFO will lead the exercises.

       (1) The PFO will announce warm-up exercises in the following manner: “The first exercise of the day will be
(exercise). It is a ___-count exercise. We will perform ___ repetitions. Position of the exercise, MOVE!” All flights
will then assume the appropriate position. The PFO will then give the command of execution, “Ready, BEGIN!”

      (2) The PFO will call cadence and each flight will respond on the completion of each set.

             Example:     GP/PFO/FLT/PFO:             1...2...3         Flight(s) responds: 1
                          GP/PFO/FLT/PFO:             1...2...3         Flight(s) responds: 2

      (3) Following the completion of each exercise, all cadets will request in unison, “Permission to recover, sir
(or ma’am)!” The PFO will respond, “RECOVER!”

    d. For any exercise requiring a partner, flight members will be paired by gender (male/male and female/female).
In the event there is an extra cadet, a CTA of the same gender or a member from a different flight may be used.

   e. All cadets are required to bring a PT towel.

    f. After the warm-up exercises, the FLT/PFO will move the flight to the starting point of the day’s physical
activity.




                                                         53
4. PFT
   a. The PFT is comprised of three weighted events administered in the following order: sit-ups, push-ups, and a
1.5-mile run. A 3-minute rest period will be given between each event. To pass the PFT, you must achieve the
minimum passing standard for each of the three events (see Table 11-1). Each event will be assigned a point value,
which will be used to determine your rating on the PFT portion of the AFOATS Form 708. If you achieve the
maximum number of repetitions for sit-ups and push-ups and max the time on the run as well (see Table 11-2), you
will be eligible for the 500 Club.


                        SIT-UPS                            PUSH-UPS                          1.5-MILE RUN
               17-24     24-29         > 30       17-24      24-29        > 30       17-24        24-29   > 30

TABLE 11-2. PFT Maximum Scoring Standards


    b. Cadets must pass the PFT by the mid-point of Field Training. Cadets who fail to meet this standard will be
removed from FT with prejudice. Cadet may receive up to four opportunities to pass the PFT by the mid-point of
FT. Contract cadets removed with prejudice will be investigated for disenrollment upon returning to their
detachments. Cadets who fail any PFT during FT will receive no better than a “marginal” rating on the physical
fitness portion of their AFOATS Form 708 evaluation.

5. CONDUCT OF THE PFT. Conduct 5 minutes of warm-up exercises prior to the PFT. During the PFT, staff
members will monitor each event to ensure standardization and proper execution. Do not count any repetition that is
performed incorrectly, and advise the cadet if a repetition was incorrect and will not count. If the cadet continues
performing repetitions incorrectly, the event may be stopped at the current count.
   a. Sit-ups: Begin this event in the down position. You will have 2 minutes to complete this event.
       (1) Acceptable. Arms crossed over the chest with fingers touching the collarbone [on both sides] throughout
the exercise. Knees are bent with feet no wider than a hip-width apart. Touch both elbows to the knee (the midpoint
of the thigh to the knee is acceptable). The bottom of both shoulder blades must touch the ground when down.
Cadets may rest only in the up position without touching arms to knees and for no more than 5 seconds.
       (2) Unacceptable. Arms not crossed or fingers not touching the collarbone. Both elbows not touching the
knees. Bouncing buttocks off ground to gain momentum. Failure to touch the ground with both shoulder blades.
Resting while in down position (momentary shift of position is okay) or in the up position for more than 5 seconds.
Arms touching knees while resting. Tops of both shoulder blades not touching the ground when in the down
position.
      (3) Completion of Exercise. Upon reaching 2-minute time limit. Resting in up position in excess of 5
seconds. Arms touch knees while resting. Failure to complete an attempted sit-up.
       (4) Spotters. Hold cadet’s feet at or below the mid-point of the calves and count repetitions aloud. Spotter
may not kneel on the cadet's feet or sit with legs around the cadet’s feet. Accidental breaking of the hands does not
constitute termination of the event; however the repetition will not count. Count aloud to 5 seconds when cadet is
resting in the up position.



                                                          54
    b. Push-ups: Begin this event in the up position. You will have 2 minutes to complete this event. NOTE: T-
shirts must be tucked into shorts/sweats prior to start.
       (1) Acceptable. Body straight throughout exercise. Hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Both feet
must touch the ground and may be no more than hip-width apart (approximately 12 inches). Lower body until
elbows are bent at least 90-degrees. Lift body until arms are fully extended. Cadet may rest in the up position only
and for no more than 5 seconds. Cadet may not sag body at any time. While resting only, cadet may flex back or
rotate torso left and right to “shake out” arms. However, the other hand and both feet must remain in relatively the
same position on the ground.
       (2) Unacceptable. Excessive arching of body (positive or negative) during repetitions or while resting. Not
lowering body to achieve 90-degree angle between upper arms and forearms. Arms not fully extended in up
position. Any part of body, except hands and toes, resting on ground. Feet more than hip-width apart and/or hands
more than shoulder width apart.
      (3) Completion of Exercise. Upon reaching 2-minute time limit. Resting in up position in excess of 5
seconds. Failure to complete an attempted push-up. Allowing body to touch the ground.
      (4) Spotters. Kneel directly in front of the cadet or to the cadet’s side. Count repetitions aloud each time
arms extend fully to the up position. Count aloud to 5 seconds when cadet is resting in the up position.

   c. 1.5-Mile Run:
       (1) Acceptable. Walking at any time or momentarily stopping to re-fasten shoe lace(s) during the run,
provided cadet remains within the lateral limits of the running surface. Talking. Signaling current lap count verbally
or using fingers. Wearing a watch.
      (2) Unacceptable. Crossing an inside barrier (if present). Deliberate physical contact with another runner or
observer (on or off the running surface).
       (3) Completion of Exercise. Crossing the finish line. Failure to cross the line (regardless of reason) results in
a score of zero for this event.
       (4) Spotters. Must remain off the running surface. Cannot physically aid or impede any runners on the track
in any way. Must remain focused on lap counts and time hacks.
        (5) Observers. Must remain off the running surface. After the initial PFT and at the runner’s request, one
cadet is permitted on the running surface to help pace the runner. The Pacer must run beside or behind the runner so
as to not impede the runner’s path of travel and cannot make contact with the runner at any time. Any contact will
result in automatic failure by the runner for the event.




                                                          55
CHAPTER 12: VOLLEYBALL

1. RULES AND REGULATIONS

   a. Players. Teams consist of nine players positioned in three lines (front, middle, and rear) with three players on
each line. A team captain must always be on the court and is the only player allowed to address the officials.
Substitute players will enter at the position of server. During play, substitutions are allowed for injury. Substitutes
will enter when the ball is dead (touches the ground or a foul is committed) or during time outs.

   b. Match. The first team to score 15 points wins the game (teams do not have to win by two points). The first
team to win two games wins the match.

   c. Boundaries. The court lines are counted as “in bounds.”          The ball must always pass over or inside of the
tape markers/antennas and may not touch the net on the serve.

   d. Service. The home team has the first serve and the visiting team has its choice of side. In the third game (if
necessary) teams will change courts when one team reaches eight points.

      (1) Serve from anywhere behind the end line.

       (2) The server may hit the ball in any manner but must not step on or over the end line until the ball is struck.
The server will hold the ball under his/her left arm and address the referee, “(Serving team score) serving (receiving
team score). Ready to serve Sir (Ma’am).” The receiving team captain will reply, “Ready to receive Sir (Ma’am).”
At this point, the referee will motion for service with the arm accompanied by a loud, hard whistle blow.

       (3) A side-out occurs when the ball touches the net, goes under the net, lands out-of-bounds, or touches any
teammate or object before going over the net. After each side out, the ball must be rolled under the net and the
receiving team will rotate clockwise.

   e. Play. The ball must be hit cleanly and crisply. It must not visibly rest on any part of a player's body upon
contact.

      (1) A team may hit the ball only three times before going over the net. A player may not strike the ball twice
consecutively.

      (2) When opposing players strike the ball at the same time it will not be counted as a hit; however, when a
defensive player blocks a spike and then hits the ball, both actions will count as one hit. The first hit after the serve
must be a bump hit with thumbs together, underhand or overhand.

      (3) Cadets will not cross onto another volleyball court to retrieve a ball while that court is in use.

    f. Positions. Prior to service, players on both teams must be standing at the position of attention and in proper
rotation position as dictated by the PT CTA (a point, or side out, will be awarded if they are not). After the referee’s
whistle blows, players may stand at ease. After the ball leaves the server's hand, players may move anywhere on the
court. Middle and back line players may play a ball in the front row; however, they may not assume the
responsibilities of a front row player (jumping spikes or blocking). If an official impedes a player, the point will be
replayed.

   g. Fouls. When opposing players foul simultaneously, replay the point. A player may not have contact with any
part of the net during play. The only exception is when the ball is driven into the net and causes the net to touch an
opposing player. A player may reach over the net to block a spike (except on service). Players will not interfere
with an opponent’s attempt to hit the ball.

    h. Time-Outs. Each team has two 1-minute time-outs per game. An official must recognize the time-out prior
to service. Rest periods between games are mandatory, and water breaks during games will not exceed 3 minutes.


                                                           56
    i. Suspended Game. If the referee suspends a game due to weather, both teams must leave the court. The
referee will record the game scores, courtsides, and serving team. Teams will move to the designated area and await
instructions. If play is resumed, teams will have the scores and service prior to the delay. In the event a game cannot
be resumed or time has expired, the game will be awarded to the team with the most points at the time the game was
called.

2. OFFICIALS. Each team provides two officials (one referee or umpire and one back line judge). The home
team will provide an umpire first and visitors will provide a referee – alternate positions each game. Change line
judges after each game. When calling the game, all officials must blow their whistles forcefully and signal fouls with
gesture and voice.

   a. Referee. The referee will be positioned at the net and is the final authority for other officials and team
captains. The referee will:

       (1) Conduct a pre-game briefing with both team captains. During the meeting, the referee will introduce
officials, stress safety, remind players to remove jewelry and stay behind the sidelines, and appoint a ball shagger
who will stand behind the court.

      (2) Start and stop games on time, and give 1-minute and 30-second warnings prior to play.

      (3) Regulate serves (signal when ready).

      (4) Enforce the rules and ensure sportsmanlike conduct.

      (5) Call net plays and mishandled balls or illegal hits.

      (6) Keep track of time-outs.

   b. Umpire. The umpire aids the referee and will:

      (1) Keep score.

      (2) Keep the playing court free of hazards.

        (3) Call centerline violations (entire foot over the center line), sideline violations, and mishandled balls or
illegal hits the referee does not see.

       (4) Check lineup cards, monitor substitutions, and ensure players are in the correct position (i.e., no overlap at
service impact).

   c. Back Line Judges. Back line judges aid the referee and umpire and will:

      (1) Hold the ball between games and during time outs.

      (2) Call back court/service violations and balls in/out-of-bounds.

      (3) Retrieve and return balls to the server.




                                                           57
CHAPTER 13: ULTIMATE FRISBEE/FOOTBALL

1. RULES AND REGULATIONS. Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact sport with two teams consisting of nine
players each. The object is to move the disc by passing and score goals by catching the disc in the end zone.
NOTE: Ellsworth FTUs may substitute “Football” for Frisbee due to high wind conditions.

   a. Field of Play. Use cones to mark corners of the field and end zones. Dimensions are as follows:


                        Team Bench                      Score Board                        Team Bench
                                                       53 1/3 yds (160’)



                                                               C
                         G                                     E   L                                 G
                 90’     O                                     N   I                                 O
                         A                                     T   N                                 A
                         L                                     E   E                                 L
                                                               R


                         15’                     5’     Penalty Box

                                                               10’
                  FIGURE 13-1. Ultimate Frisbee Field of Play Layout

    b. Time. Games are played in halves consisting of two 10-minute quarters. The half-time period lasts 5
minutes, and quarter breaks last 2 minutes. The clock starts at the first throw-off and stops at the end of each quarter
and for injuries – team captains are the only ones who may call injury time-outs. If the disc is in the air when time is
called, stop play when it lands. Play resumes with the team that had possession when play was stopped.

    c. Participation/Substitutions. A team captain must be on the field at all times. Substitutions can only be
made: (1) after a goal and before the ensuing accepted throw-off, (2) before the start of a period, and (3) to replace
injured players. If a team replaces injured players, the opposing team can substitute up to the same number.

   d. Starting/Restarting Play. The home team captain flips a disc and the visiting team captain makes the call.
The winner has the choice of receiving the initial throw-off or selecting which goal they will defend (reverse these
choices at the beginning of the second half). In the second and fourth quarters, play resumes where time was called.
      (1) Start each half of play and after each goal with a throw-off (i.e., one player throwing the disc toward the
opposite goal line). After each goal, teams change sides and the team that scored throws off.
       (2) The server will hold the disc in his/her left hand and address the referee, “(Serving team score) serving
(receiving team score). Ready to serve, Sir (Ma’am).” The receiving team captain will reply, “Ready to receive, Sir
(Ma’am).” The referee will then motion for the throw-off with the arm accompanied by a loud, hard whistle blow.
       (3) Prior to service, players on both teams must be standing at the position of attention; if the team members
are not, a point will be awarded to the opposing team. The throwing team may move in its end zone, but may not
cross the goal line until the disc is released. The receiving team must stand with one foot on its goal line and not
change position relative to one another. When the disc is released, all players may move in any direction; however,
no player on the throwing team may touch the disc until the receiving team touches it.
      (4) If the receiving team catches the disc, play begins from that spot. If the receiving team touches the disc
and fails to catch it, the throwing team takes possession where it stops. If the receiving team lets the disc fall
untouched to the ground, it retains possession and play begins from the spot where it stops. If the disc stops out-of-
bounds, play will start at the point where it went out.


                                                          58
    f. Out-of-Bounds/End Zones. The disc is out-of-bounds when it lands on or outside the boundary lines,
contacts anything that is out-of-bounds, or is carried out-of-bounds. Play will resume from the point where it went
out. If a team gains possession in its end zone, play will begin from the goal line. Cadets will not cross into another
field to retrieve a disc while the other field is in use.

    g. The Thrower. Any offensive player may put the disc in play. The disc must be thrown; any other method of
transfer is a turnover. A rolling or sliding disc is put in play at the point where it stops. The thrower must establish a
pivot foot and may pivot 360 degrees but cannot lift the pivot foot. A player may not catch his/her own throw unless
another player touches it first. Defenders must stay at least three feet from the thrower and cannot make any contact
with the offensive player (to include the disc).

   h. The Receiver. After catching a pass, he/she is allowed three steps to stop and establish a pivot foot. If they
cannot do so, a turnover occurs due to traveling. If players from both teams catch the disc simultaneously, the
offense retains possession. The receiver may tag a defensive player with the disc, within the three-foot rule, but may
not lift his/her pivot foot.

    i. Fouls. Fouls occur when: (1) opposing players make contact, (2) safety is jeopardized by reckless behavior,
(3) the three-foot rule is violated, (4) a player other than the team captain talks to the officials, or (5) a player jumps.
In the case of contact, the initiating player is guilty of a foul and a turnover results (if applicable). After a foul
occurs, the guilty parties will be sent to the penalty box and the disc will be turned over at the point of infraction.

    j. Turnovers. Turnovers occur when: (1) a thrower takes more than three steps, (2) a player holds the disc for
more than 5 seconds, or (3) a pass is incomplete, intercepted, knocked down, or out-of-bounds. After turnovers, the
player possessing the disc will ground it and the opposing team will begin play from the spot where the disc struck
the ground or side/end line where it went out-of-bounds.

    k. Scoring. A goal is scored when a player catches a pass in the opposing team’s end zone (i.e., the first point of
contact with the ground after catching the disc completely in the end zone). A player cannot score by stepping into
the end zone with the disc. If a player’s momentum carries them into the end zone, the referee will stop play and
direct the player with the disc to move three steps away from the end zone and resume play.

   l. Penalty Box. The purpose of the penalty box is to force teams to modify their strategy to accommodate for
missing players. A CTA or other staff member will be in charge of the penalty box. Cadets who are sent to the
penalty box must report in and do AFROTC Field Training authorized calisthenics (see table 11.2) as designated by
the person in charge, in sets of 10 repetitions, alternating exercises after each set. Clear the penalty box after each
point and at the end of periods. Team captains are the only people allowed to clear the penalty box.

2. OFFICIALS. The home team will provide the referee and the visitors will provide the line official; alternate
positions between games. Both officials call fouls and are responsible for a sideline and an end line.

    a. Referee. The referee will conduct a pre-game briefing with team captains, during which he/she will introduce
officials and stress safety. The referee keeps score and announces foul perpetrators (color and number), the type of
foul and penalty, and which team gets possession of the disc.

    b. Line Official. The line official aids the referee and, in addition to calling fouls, is responsible for keeping
track of time, time-outs, team substitutions, and the number of players on each team.




                                                            59
CHAPTER 14: ONE-PITCH SOFTBALL/ONE-ROLL KICKBALL

1. RULES AND REGULATIONS. One-roll kickball may be used as a variation on one-pitch softball. The same
rules and regulations apply.

    a. Players. Teams consist of nine players stationed anywhere on the field. A team is permitted unlimited
substitutions (made through the scorekeepers), provided the original batting position is maintained. When not on the
field, players will stand behind the backstop; however, base coaches are allowed at first and third base. Catchers
must wear a facemask.

    b. Team Captains. Team captains will exchange rosters at home plate before the game. An “X” will be placed
on the roster to indicate which innings a cadet will play (Figure 14-1). Schedule all players to play at least five of
the first 15 innings of the game. Captains are the only players allowed to talk to umpires during a game.

    c. Appeals. Team captains may direct an appeal to either umpire by stating “appeal play,” and then identifying
the infraction, i.e., pitching/batting rotation, missing a base, or not tagging-up.

   d. Shagging. Each team will shag foul balls on its side of the field and roll the balls to the home plate official.

   e. Games. Games will last exactly 40 minutes with no limitation on the number of innings. A 3-minute break
will be taken at the halfway point. Once time has expired, the game ends after completion of any play in progress.
During play, gloves will be left at the field positions when teams are swapping out. The team captain may call a
time-out if a player gets to a position and a “wrong-handed” glove is there.

    f. Pitching. Deliver one pitch only to each batter. No warm-up pitches are allowed after the game starts. The
pitcher is a member of the batting team.

       (1) When a team comes to bat, its pitcher must get the ball, put on a glove, and go directly to the pitcher’s
mound. If the opposing team catcher is not ready to receive the pitch, the pitcher will not throw the ball. Succeeding
batters will be awarded first base until the official signals that the catcher is ready.

       (2) The pitcher must have both feet on the pitcher’s rubber before delivering the ball. The pitcher can step
forward or backwards, but must keep one foot in contact with the rubber until the ball is released. The ball must be
pitched underhand, at hip level, and travel in at least a three-foot arc (from the pitcher’s hand) before reaching the
plate.

       (3) At no time during the game will the pitcher be permitted to be touched by or field a batted ball, regardless
of intent. If this happens, the batter is ruled out and base runners return to their bases.

     (4) Pitchers starting an inning must complete the inning unless injured or unable to continue. All flight
members must pitch before a player repeats as pitcher – use the same rotation for the entire game.

       (5) The catcher must stay in the catcher’s box until the pitch is delivered and will roll the ball to the pitcher.

   g. Batting. Batters may move their feet, but both feet must remain inside the batter’s box (includes the line).
Hold the bat with both hands and make a complete swing (no bunting). The batting team must remove the bat at the
end of its turn at bat or an out will be assessed against them during the next turn at bat.

       (1) When batting, the batting team will skip the pitcher and continue the rotation as listed.

        (2) A batter will be ruled out for entering the batter’s box before the pitcher is ready; for hindering the catcher
from fielding or throwing the ball; for delaying their approach to the plate in order to allow his/her team to clear the
field; or for throwing the bat.




                                                            60
   h. Base runners. Base runners must touch the bases in the following order: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, home.

       (1) The batter becomes a base runner if he/she hits a fair ball that is not caught; the catcher is not prepared to
receive the pitch, but both the pitcher and batter are ready; the catcher interferes with the batter; or a delay of game is
called against the defending team.

       (2) Base runners may advance when a legally hit ball is not caught or

          (a) after tagging up when a legally hit fly ball is caught in fair or foul territory

          (b) a fielder obstructs the base runner from making the base unless the fielder is trying to make a play

           (c) a ball in play is overthrown and goes out of the field of play. This happens when an overthrown ball
strikes, or goes past, the fence. In this event, the runner receives the committed base plus one.

       (3) A base runner must return to the last base held when a batter or other base runner is called out for
interference or there is interference by an umpire, in which case the batter will bat again.

      (4) Base runners are ruled out when a hit ball is caught before it touches the ground; however, the opposing
team’s players must call for fly balls or the runner is safe, even it the ball is caught. Base runners are also out if:

          (a) they run outside the 3-foot line to avoid being put out or if they slide in any situation

          (b) the fielder tags the base runner with the ball or tags the base on a force-out to which the base runner is
forced to advance before the runner reaches that base

          (c) after a fly ball has been caught, they take a new base without tagging up

          (d) they leave the base (including leading off) before a pitched ball has reached home plate. This is a “No
Pitch” and the batter bats again.

          (e) they interfere (verbally or physically) with a fielder or a thrown ball.

    i. Infield Fly Rule. An infield fly is a fair ball hit upward that could easily be caught by an infielder. If there
are less than two outs and the batter hits an infield fly, it is an automatic out. For the infield fly rule to be enforced,
one of the following must exist: runner on first; runners on first and second; or runners on first, second, and third.

2. OFFICIALS. Each team must provide an umpire and a scorekeeper. No protests of “judgment call” decisions
are allowed; however, team captains may file appeals on rules violations with the home plate umpire. Each umpire
will state the reason for an out (i.e., “Out! The batter stepped out of the batter’s box.”).

   a. The home team provides the home plate umpire. The home plate umpire is responsible for all calls at third
and home plates, and for overall regulation of the game, including score discrepancies.

   b. The field umpire, provided by the visitor team, is responsible for calls at first and second bases.

   c. The scorekeepers will stand next to each other behind the backstop, directly behind the home plate umpire.
They will annotate substitutions and keep score by inning on the team roster. They will confirm with each other each
run scored. If deviations are noted, they will bring them to the attention of the home plate umpire.

CHAPTER 15: FIELD TRAINING COMPLETION

1. REQUIREMENTS. To successfully complete FT you must complete at least 70 percent of the required training
according to the Field Training Syllabus and not be absent from FT for more than 72 consecutive hours. You must
also pass the PFT; attain a 70 percent academic average (extended FTUs only); and not be rated as “Unsatisfactory”
in any one performance factor (PF) block (sub-area) or receive an overall score of “Unsatisfactory” on the AFOATS
Form 708, Field Training Performance Report (Attachment 7).

2. NON-COMPLETION. There are many reasons you may be released from FT without completing training
requirements. These reasons may be within your control (released with prejudice) or out of your control (released
without prejudice). If you are released, the FT/CC (or delegate) will notify your detachment commander and
observe while you contact a family member and inform them of your travel itinerary. The FT/CC will contact the
appropriated base agency for those unable to travel (mental stress, fatigue, etc.). An AFOATS Form 708 will be
accomplished for all cadets.

    a. Emergency Absences. In the event of an emergency, the FT/CC may authorize you to be absent from
training for up to 72 consecutive hours (emergencies at home must be verified through the Red Cross). If you cannot
return within 72 hours or are unable to make up missed training to meet syllabus requirements, you will be released
without prejudice.

    b. Medical Release. If you are injured or become ill at FT, you will be examined at the host base hospital to
determine your ability to continue training. Medically restricted cadets who have not completed all required training
and cannot fully participate in all areas will be released without prejudice. However, if there are 3 days or less of
training remaining and you have completed at least 70% of required training, the FT/CC may allow you to remain
and complete FT.

   c. Self-Initiated Elimination (SIE). SIE means that you voluntarily withdraw yourself from FT. You will be
counseled and must state your reasons for withdrawing in an official memorandum to the FT/CC through your FTO.
You must acknowledge receipt of the FT/CC's comments by endorsement and will be released with prejudice.

       (1) If you are a contract cadet, you must understand that SIE will jeopardize your future status as a candidate
for a commission in any branch of the US Armed Forces. It could also result in an involuntary call to extended
active duty in your enlisted grade or recoupment of paid scholarship benefits.

      (2) If you are a non-contract cadet, you must understand that SIE may jeopardize your future status as a
candidate for a commission in any branch of the US Armed Forces and may disqualify you from entry into the POC.

   d. Military Performance. Failure to meet military performance standards will result in either a dismissal or
removal from FT. The FT/CC is the final authority for dismissals or removals based on unsatisfactory performance.

       (1) Dismissal. You may be dismissed from FT for such things as serious misconduct, lack of discipline,
Honor Code violations, drug or alcohol involvement, or indifference to training. Your FTO will counsel you

CHAPTER 16: AWARDS

1. HONOR FLIGHT. Honor Flight recognizes the week’s top flight and is normally presented during change of
command ceremonies at parades. The award is based on performance factors such as parade, drill, competitive
sports, PFT and inspections. Academics may be included at 6-week FTUs.

   a. Weekly Honor Flight winners will receive first meal priority (schedule permitting) as well as a distinctive
guidon streamer.

   b. During the final parade, the overall Honor Flight winner will be recognized. This award will be annotated on
each flight member’s AFOATS Form 708 evaluation.

2. WARRIOR FLIGHT. Warrior Flight recognizes the flight that has shown the week’s highest motivation and is
normally presented during change of command ceremonies at parades. The award is based on factors such as esprit
de corps, warrior tests, warrior runs, etc.

    a. The weekly Warrior Flight winners will receive second meal priority (schedule permitting) as well as a
distinctive guidon streamer.

   b. During the final parade, the overall Warrior Flight winner will be recognized. This award will be reflected on
each flight member’s AFOATS Form 708 evaluation.

3. INDIVIDUAL AWARDS. Awards are tentatively determined within the final 4 days of FT. A board comprised
of the FT/CC, FT/DO, FT/COC(s), FT/ADO(s) and FTOs makes award selections. CTAs may provide input.
Cadets must successfully complete FT to be eligible for awards and may wear any applicable ribbons upon returning
to their respective detachments.

   a. Distinguished Graduate (DG) Award. Recognizes and is limited to the top 10% at each FTU. A DG will
be a team player with a “can-do” attitude. This individual will have respect for authority, demonstrated leadership
ability, and a near-flawless military image. The award consists of a ribbon with one silver star device and an
Exceptional Achievement Certificate.

   b. Superior Performance (SP) Award. Recognizes, and is limited to, cadets ranked in the next 10% below
DG. The selection criteria are the same as DG. The SP award consists of a ribbon and an Exceptional Achievement
Certificate. Please note that the total number of DG and SP winners will not exceed 20% of the FTU.

   c. Athletic Award. Recognizes cadets with a PFT score in the top 10% of their FTU. However, in the event
more than 10% percent of an FTU’s cadets score 500, all cadets with that score will receive the award. The award
consists of a ribbon and an Outstanding Achievement Certificate.

   d. Academic Achievement Award (extended FTUs only). Recognizes cadets with an academic standing in the
top 10% of their FTU. The award consists of a ribbon and an Outstanding Achievement Certificate.

   e. Marksmanship Award. Recognizes cadets who qualify as “Expert” in small arms marksmanship training.
There is no limit to the number of awards presented. Cadets will receive an AF Form 522, Ground Weapons
Training Data, which must be taken to the first active duty location. The award consists of the AFROTC
Marksmanship Award (which transfers to the AF Small Arms Marksmanship Ribbon upon entering active duty).

    f. AFROTC 500 CLUB. Any cadet who records a perfect score (500) on any official PFT administered at FT
will become a member of the AFROTC 500 Club. Club members receive the Athletic Award ribbon and a certificate
signed by the AFROTC Commander. Cadets in the AFROTC 500 club are still required to take the PFT each term
(including the upcoming Fall term) at their respective units.
