  • Guardsman Caught Off-Guard: OTS experience becomes a pleasant surprise

    With thousands of Cadets graduating Officer Training School every year, it’s inevitable that experiences will vary drastically from one person to the next. Cadet Eric Keller from New Paltz, NY has a unique perspective of one of the Air Force’s main officer training programs. Keller, a member of the Air National Guard for nearly nine years, acted as a guardsman as well as an active duty service member. His experience as a prior service member prepared him for the rudimentary facets of Total Force Officer Training (TFOT), namely dorm maintenance, marching, customs and courtesies, and dress and appearance. These aspects, tedious as they may sometimes seem, have their utilities in instilling discipline, attention to detail, and situational awareness in the Cadets who graduate from the program.
