With a BS in business administration, Roy Bowser Jr. is an administrative professional with over two decades of experience. Retired Chief Master Seargent Roy Bowser Jr. is affiliated with the Air Force Sergeants Association (AFSA).

The Air Force Sergeants Association is a professional organization that educates and advocates for elected community and military leaders to improve the quality of life of military members and their families. The AFSA supports its members in various ways including educational programs, scholarship opportunities, and awards or medal recognition.

AFSA International presents two special awards to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of young military cadets who show exceeding qualities of leadership, discipline, and citizenship. These awards include the Air Force Junior ROTC Award (JROTC) and the Civil Air Patrol Award (CAP).

The JROTC award is an annual award that recognizes cadets enrolled in the Air Force Junior ROTC program at high schools in the United States and overseas. For this prize, the AFSA considers second, or third-year cadets enrolled in a three-year program and fourth-year cadets enrolled in a four-year program who are in the top 10% of their class.

The CAP award acknowledges the exceptionally meritorious service and outstanding achievement of enlisted cadets at the squadron level. Presented annually, both awards consist of a certificate with an inscription of the cadet’s name and a medal or ribbon placed in an AFSA Presentation Folder.
