This week our cadet spotlight shines on Cameron Hegwood, a senior at Det 930 who is commissioning after he graduates this semester! Cadet Hegwood is from Oconomowoc, WI and studies Electrical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

AFROTC Week in Review
At LLAB, cadets showcased their drill and ceremonies skills while performing an Open Ranks Inspection. Cadets were evaluated on how well they upheld the Air Force's dress and appearance standards. Looking sharp cadets!
A professional and sharp image is important to maintain in the military, as it reflects the high levels of discipline, pride and honor service members strive for.
We congratulate Cadet Anna Huntley(middle) for scoring a perfect 100 on the Air Force Fitness Assessment. She has earned herself a spot alongside Cadets Emily Gehrke and Anthony Archuleta in the 100 Club, a group of cadets who have scored 100 on the FA at some point in their AFROTC career. These cadets have upheld the Air Force core value of "Excellence in All We Do," not only when it comes to physical fitness, but every aspect of AFROTC as well.
Physical fitness is an important aspect of life for members of the United States Armed Forces. A fit force is more productive, powerful and prepared to carry out the mission.
Today we honor and remember all those who have served in the Armed Forces. #VeteransDay
Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, is a U.S. holiday which originally honored service members who served during World War I. The name was officially changed after World War II and the Korean War when veterans asked U.S. Congress to change the day’s name from “Armistice Day” to “Veterans Day” in order to acknowledge the sacrifices made by all service members during war and peace.
Today we honor all veterans. Thank you for your service.
This semester, C/BeBeau is a Squadron Commander, leading and instructing a group of 13 cadets. C/BeBeau’s outstanding leadership and effectiveness teaching her squadron the fundamentals of drill and ceremonies have earned her a spot on Cadet Spotlight.
Hometown: Chippewa Falls, WI
University: Milwaukee School of Engineering

“I want to pursue my education and serve something larger than myself and ROTC was the best way to do that.”
AFROTC Week in Review:
This week cadets honed their marching skills at an all outdoor LLAB. At PT, cadets saw their months of hard work pay off while taking the first official Air Force Fitness Assessment of this semester. Every week since week one, Det 930’s cadets have improved their drill and physical fitness at a rate this detachment has never seen, embodying “Excellence in all we do.” We at Det 930 have three weeks of instruction left and we are excited to finish the semester strong!
Congratulations to C/Munz, who earned a Type 1 Scholarship on 3 Nov. Aim High C/Munz!
On Tuesday, 03 Nov, C/Peachy was awarded a Type 1 Scholarship. Congratulations to you C/Peachey and keep up the hard work!
Happy Halloween from Det 930! 🎃💀👻
Today, cadets held a Halloween party that featured pumpkin carving and costumes along with video games, chess and ping pong. C/Yundt’s pumpkin (third pic) was voted the winner by a majority vote. Do you agree?
AFROTC Detachment 930 is proud to announce Cadet Spotlight, a new social media initiative to showcase the many outstanding cadets we have at Det 930.
This week, our spotlight shines on Naaman Morales. Cadet Morales hails from De Forest, WI and attends University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he studies electrical engineering.
When asked why he wanted to join AFROTC, Cadet Morales said “I joined AFROTC because I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself, to serve my country and to defend the Constitution to the best of my ability.”
