Keeping Miami's ROTC unit on track for success
During the few weeks preceding the nationwide outbreak of COVID-19, Capt. Ben Durdle of Miami’s Air Force ROTC Detachment 640 anticipated the move to remote learning and planned for telework. Capt. Durdle ensured the full population of AES classroom courses on Canvas and found a way to fulfill 94% of training objectives for 59 cadets, setting Miami's detachment on course to commission 10 Miamians as second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force this spring. Staff Sergeant Vincent Avila, an administrative specialist, created processes enabling 15 cadets to remain on track to attend field training this summer.
