Air Force ROTC gets new offices

Cougar News Services

UH's Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps, the first in Houston, is moving to new quarters today in Garrison Gymnasium.

Col. John Gaughan, commander of all Air Force ROTC detachments in the Southwest, and Col. David L. Mintz, an F-15 fighter pilot and commander of UH's Air Force ROTC detachment, will be on hand for this afternoon's ribbon-cutting and open house.

About 50 students are enrolled in the program, which offers the chance to become a 2nd Lieutenant in the Air Force upon earning a UH degree. Students from Rice and Texas Southern universities may also participate.

"Since Air Force ROTC is all about quality and diversity in training future Air Force leaders, what better place for that than at UH, with the most ethnically diverse student body among the nation's research universities?" Mintz said in a release.

The dedication of the facility, which is open to the public, will begin at 3 p.m. in Room 109, Garrison Gymnasium.
