Chapter 1 Introduction
Welcome to the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps 130th Cadet Wing! If you are reading this handbook, you have decided to make the initial steps in learning to become a successful Airman and leader in the United States Air Force. The 130th Cadet Wing participates in a leadership laboratory, also known as LLab, which will help you be prepared for Active Duty, and the opportunities it brings.
This handbook is the official 130th Cadet Wing, Cadet Guide, which is designed to give you a well-rounded knowledge of Air Force basics, uniform wear, customs & courtesies, and the like. This guide is not a replacement of the requirements mandated by the leadership lab syllabus or the instruction of a cadre member and/or a cadet officer, Air Force Instructions (AFIs), or AFROTC Instructions (AFROTCIs). Rather, it serves as a supplemental material and guide toward where to learn more about your expectations as a cadet in the ROTC program, here, at Cadet Wing 130.
Study hard, be confident, never fail, and never leave an Airman behind! Make sure your flight mates and fellow GMC know about this book and learn of its contents. You will be expected to use what you learn in this book at Det 130 and in your Air Force future.
If you have any questions about the material, contact your flight mates first, then your POC Flight Commander. Good luck!

Each week the cadet leadership will publish a document called Operations Orders (Ops Orders). This document details what the cadet wing will be doing throughout the week. It lists times, location, and uniform of the day (UOD) for every Leadership Lab as well as physical training session. They are published two ways. First, they will be emailed out over the wing list-serv (to get added to this listserv, email the webmaster at [email protected]). The second way is they will be posted to the cadet wing website (see above).
The same method of distribution will apply to any other important announcement. If you were to have a question about any ops orders or announcement made you would direct that question through your chain of command (see Chapter 3, Number X).
