    Damn 15 passenger vans. At CGA 3/c cadets had to drive them (or was it 4/c). We all had to watch roll-over videos.... needless to say, after you watch those, and realize you're driving the short based 15 passenger vans than prefer to roll over.... you never want to drive again.


    Hope everyone does ok. I'm sure the incident alone is traumatic for the cadets, beyond injuries.

    From what I'm hearing on the Cadet side of things, some of the guys are banged up, but they all will be fine. Part of the team is still going to box in the Eastern Regional Championship today.

    That is good that they will all be fine.

    Little bit of extra shock training for Afghanistan if anything.

    This accident happened pretty close to where I live. On the local evening news; they said that all of the cadets, except for the one who was flown to Danville, are out of the hospital.

    Glad I hear theyre ok though!!
