My son will be part of the newly arriving cadets in June from Illinois. I saw on a couple of forums that you can have a box sent to the cadet and have it labeled hold for acceptance day. They will deliver it to him on that date. At this point I am unsure if I will be able to attend that day, with it only being 3 hours. From others experience have you heard of such a thing being allowed. Items for the box have been suggested: new underwear, socks, paper, stamps,some small snacks, alarm clock with no music, lint roller, small first aid kit. Pictures for desk. Thanks for the information ahead of time.
