AFROTC has been a part of the Air Force since its creation on September 18, 1947. Only 10 months later, in July 1948, the Air Force and Baylor University partnered in the creation of Air Force ROTC Detachment 810.
In 2008, Detachment 810 was awarded the Air Force ROTC Right Of Line Award as the #1 large detachment in the nation! In addition we were awarded the High Flight Award recognizing us as one of the top four detachments in America, and the best in the AFROTC Southwest Region for 1996, 2003, and 2008.
Starting in 2021, Det 810 also began commissioning officers for the United States Space Force, with our first Space Force officer commissioning in May of 2021 and our most recent Space Force officer commissioning in December 2023.
