ROTC, Civil Air Patrol and AF JROTC Medals, Ribbons and Certificates

Cadet Award Packages

Each year, each detachment, squadron or unit may select one outstanding cadet of the year. The Air Force Association (AFA) is proud to support these accomplished cadets with an award package containing a medal and ribbon. Once you have received an award package, please fill out the electronic Award Presentation Feedback Form.


AFA will automatically send an award package to each ROTC detachment and each JROTC unit based on a data file received from AFROTC and AFJROTC HQs. Packages are mailed out annually each February. 

Civil Air Patrol Squadron Cadets:

The squadron commander may request an award package between Dec.1 through Jan. 15 each year. This is the last year (2015-2016) that AFA will provide a hard copy certificate until further notice. For 2016-2017 and following, a downloadable certificate will be made available.
