Detachment 592 is a chapter of AFROTC that is quickly rising to the top, recently ranked number 4 out of 28 detachments for physical fitness for the entire Southeast Region. As a cadet wing we train together 4 times a week, 3 of those training times are devoted to physical training to achieve maximum physical performance. The fourth time is devoted to training cadets in the military aspects of ROTC, known as Leadership Laboratory.
As a detachment, we participate in several events every year. Cadets dedicate their time to volunteer for a number of events including recruiting events at local high schools, the Carolina Renaissance Festival, and building homes with Habitat for Humanity. Cadets also volunteer to host several events every year, Detachment 592 hosts an annual JROTC Drill Competition, a shadow day for high school students, an officer career day, and an enlisted career day. Detachment 592 has become highly involved around the campus, cadets have put forth tremendous work to obtain Detachment 592's very own Adopt-A-Spot here on campus that cadets constantly keep spotless. Not only are our cadets keeping the campus clean, but they have also obtained a brand new American Flag that proudly hangs at front of campus.
As ROTC cadets a majority of training happens in a locked on environment, however, like any other college student, cadets are allowed to have a little fun. Detachment 592 throws two traditional Air Force dinners annually, Dining In and Dining Out. Dining In is an informal dinner for the cadet wing while Dining Out is formal dinner for the cadet wing as well as dates. Cadets also get the chance to experience very unique team-building exercises through the Venture program. Detachment 592 is not only a cadet wing, but it also is a family of cadets who work together to make each other better, improve the UNC Charlotte campus, and create a positive AFROTC environment.
