Air Force ROTC alumni came back to campus for a reception, tailgate, and the MSU vs. Air Force football game.

MSU played the Air Force Academy on Saturday, September 19. It was the first time MSU hosted a military academy. In honor of this game, Air Force ROTC alumni and their spouses and families returned to campus. There was an alumni reception on Friday night and a tailgate for alumni and current cadets on Saturday morning. During the game, five notable MSU Air Force ROTC alumni were introduced on the field. Below are a few photos from the weekend.
