Arnold Air Society
The Arnold Air Society is a professional, honorary service organization advocating the support of aerospace power. The “service” aspect is perhaps the foremost in the mind of many members, because of the society’s continuing contributions to our campuses, our communities, and our Cadet Wing-–but it should always be remembered that our primary mission is to improve ourselves as future Air Force officers.
Cornell University’s chapter of Scabbard and Blade–Charlie Company, First Regiment–is the third company to have formed, founded in 1906. Scabbard and Blade at Cornell honors those members of the three commissioning programs–Army ROTC, Naval ROTC, and Air Force ROTC–who best exemplify the qualities of academic strength, service to community, and outstanding ethical and moral character.
The Joint Service Color Guard consists of cadets and midshipmen from the Army ROTC, Naval ROTC, and Air Force ROTC programs. The all-volunteer Color Guard presents the nation’s Colors at Cornell University sporting events, as well as other engagements across the Finger Lakes region.
