Soaring Tigers

We are Air Force ROTC Detachment 006 and we are the
“Soaring Tigers” Wing!  Our detachment is the Air Force ROTC unit for Jackson, Mississippi and the greater Jackson Metropolitan Area.  Our Detachment (or “Det”) is hosted on Jackson State University’s main campus in Jackson and we have partnerships with Belhaven University, Hinds Community College, Millsaps College, Mississippi College and Tougaloo College. Serving as the only HBCU in the state of Mississippi with an AFROTC Detachment, we serve to provide leaders of outstanding character to serve in the world’s greatest Air Force and Space Force. Fulfilling the Department of the Air Force’s push for Diversity and Inclusion amongst it’s ranks there has never been a better time for you to be a part of something historical. Do not let another minute pass you by without checking what we have to offer. See the contact information below.
