Location: Stillman Field

The Swearing-In Ceremony for the basic cadets is typically held the day after In-Processing Day and is conducted by the Commandant of Cadets. Appointees take the Oath of Allegiance to become a basic cadet.

Family and guests are welcome to attend the event, where basic cadets form up on the parade field, starting with the first flight (A) on the left to the last flight, usually H, on the right. To ensure you’re sitting in the best location to see your cadet, verify their flight information prior to attending.

“I,________ , having been appointed an Air Force cadet in the United States Air Force, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office of which I am about to enter. (So help me God.)”
