December 7th, 2006

From the GT:

Oregon State University’s Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps’ (AFROTC) Silver Talons Drill teams earned two awards for their color guard and precision marching routine at the Albany Veterans’ Day parade on Nov. 11.

Oregon State University’s Air Force ROTC four-man special operations drill team conducted the color guard service, commanded by Cadet Adam Miles, an OSU junior majoring in political science. The Silver Talons Precision Drill Team brought up the rear, commanded by AFROTC Cadet Chance Hansen, an OSU junior majoring in communications.

Two awards were earned in recognition of their excellence and precision. The first award went to the Full Armed Flight, under the command of Cadet Hansen, for first place in the military marching unit category. The second award was earned by the Special Operations Team, under the command of Cadet Miles, giving them third place in the military color guard category. The OSU drill team members were honored with the personal congratulations of Brig. Gen. Daniel B. O’Hollaren, chief of staff of Oregon’s Air National Guard and military master of ceremonies for the parade, at the awards ceremony after the parade ended.

The AFROTC is a dedicated, professional organization committed to providing America with the best Air Force leaders for our future. Annually, OSU’s AFROTC program commissions approximately 15 active-duty officers who proudly go on to serve our nation.
