Wilkes University’s Air Force ROTC Detachment 752 visited the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., in honor of Women’s History Month. 

The Women in Military Service for America Memorial is the only major national memorial honoring all women who have served in or with the United States Armed Forces throughout history.

Wilkes University is one of only four universities in Pennsylvania that offer the Air Force ROTC program. Students from 10 colleges and universities in northeast Pennsylvania participate in the program. It is open to all full-time college students in any major. Students who participate in the program learn leadership skills, plus a diverse portfolio of other professional skills that will serve them well no matter their career path. Students who successfully complete the Air Force ROTC program enter the active duty Air Force as officers post-graduation in a career field based on their background and education.
