Detachment 855 instructs, trains, and mentors the Air Force ROTC Cadets of Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University. After graduating, cadets are commissioned as active duty Officers. Our program is demanding, but we think our country (and the world's greatest Air Force) deserve nothing less.


Develop principled Air Force leaders with strong moral convictions motivated and committed to defend the United States of America.


Develop quality leaders for the Air Force.


INTEGRITY FIRST Integrity is essential. It's the inner voice, the source of self-control, the basis for the trust that is imperative in today's military. Doing the right thing when nobody's looking.

SERVICE BEFORE SELF Military service is not just another job. It's an uncommon profession that calls for people of uncommon dedication. A leader unwilling to sacrifice individual goals for the good of the unit cannot convince other members to do so.

EXCELLENCE IN ALL WE DO Our mission often involves the risk of human life and sometimes national survival. The obligation to excel is a moral obligation for members of a professional military force.
