Squadron 2: Founded in 1960, Gator 2 is the oldest Air Force outfit and one of the oldest outfits in the Corps. Thanks to our heritage we have a culture that is strongly rooted in tradition, athletics and the value of family. Each year we work hard to win championships in the four intramural sports played by the corps – football, softball, basketball and soccer. When it comes to athletics, there are few outfits as committed to or as successful at training and winning championships as us. We also remain wholly committed to challenging ourselves daily in the form of physical fitness, through running, and calisthenics. We are consistently ranked near the top of the corps in the yearly fitness competitions that all outfits compete in. Most importantly, we have created a culture filled with traditions and a strong emphasis on family. Over the years, we’ve come to understand that our time in the Corps is limited, and the relationships we build are ones that will last a lifetime. Regardless of whether you pursue a career in the military or the private sector upon graduating, the shared times, challenges, and experiences had while in Gator 2 will leave you with the group you can call family for years to come.
