Officials at Maxwell AFB, Ala., celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Air Force Officer Training School with three days of events that drew several hundred alumni and guests, Feb. 5-7, 2010. The school has been located at Air University's Holm Center on Maxwell since September 1993, but opened its doors back in 1959 at Lackland AFB, Tex. The commemorative activities included a ceremony to honor the former OTS graduates who have been killed in combat, a tour of the OTS facilities, and a gala dinner. Here, jubilant OTS graduates from a recent class throw their caps into the air.
