    I dont really know what you're talking about, however if your talking about greeting the upperclassmen, the freshmen have to greet ALL upperclassmen in the squad and during 40 days it gets worse. It's dependent on the squad, but most squads require rank, full name (middle initial), job, major, AFSC (if applicable), hometown, and sometimes name of significant other, favorite color, ect.

    seamonkey, I think you misunderstood what packer said. Only the freshman in each squadron have to greet the upperclassmen in their squadron. So during 40 days (now) we have to greet our upperclassmen, and might have to soon include their hometown, major, AFSC, etc. For any upplerclassmen not in our squadron, we just greet good morning/afternoon/evening sir/ma'am, then conclude with the corresponding squadron greeting for however many days are left until recognition.

    Counting to recognition

    Count down the days until recognition starts (Thursday March 10) or when it ends (in theory Saturday March 12?) Doesn't the 40 days start tomorrow (Jan 31?) Let the countdown begin!

    Each squadron of 4 digs will do a spirit mission on their 'countdown' day. Today is 38 days until Recognition, so the All-Stars (Squadron 38) did this video. Other squads may do pranks or put up banners. My son is in 38, so it was funny to see a couple of people in there that I know.
