Welcome to Detachment 805

Welcome to Texas A&M University, Home of the 12th Man and Air Force ROTC Detachment 805!

With nearly 700 Air Force cadets, we are the largest AFROTC Detachment and Senior Military College in the Nation! Detachment 805, located on the campus of Texas A&M University, is one of the nation’s oldest AFROTC programs, having been established in the early 1920s as one of seven Air ROTC units. Detachment 805 has a long and proud history of producing the highest quality officers for the United States Air Force. In the past 50 years, Texas A&M has produced more officers for the Air Force than any other university. More than 76 Aggies have become Air Force generals (including seven of the eight 4-star generals produced at Texas A&M).

Because of the relationship with the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets, Det 805 offers a unique environment, combining the advantages of a military academy-type lifestyle with the benefits of a major university. Our challenging program is designed to push you, draw out your strengths and shape you into America’s leader.
