Dear Esteemed Alumni,

Welcome to the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) Detachment 009 at Yale University. Yale has a long and noble history of National Service.

The program is rigorous and contains elements which forge the physical and mental fitness of future Officers. The program focuses on hands-on leadership, historical analysis, and physical training. The program is designed to create the conditions for success both in and out of the Military.

If you should have any questions, concerns, or are interested in becoming part of this historic event both for Yale and the Air and Space Forces, please contact our staff; we hope that you will find us helpful. The Detachment’s phone number is (203) 432-9431 or you can email us at
