    Very sad news.... Our DS spoke to me about this on Sunday. He was pretty shaken up over it. Our thoughts and prayers to the family. I cannot begin to fathom the pain they are enduring.

    There was also a first class cadet (senior) who was very badly injured while skiing Keystone. His helmet saved his life. Praying for the families! Here's a toast to Jack!

    This is the 2nd son of 3 son's the family has lost.
    DS didn't know him, but as a fellow 2018'er it hits home.
    The Cadets and the family's are pulling together to hold
    each other up. To date the focus was on BCT survival,
    academic survival, and so far this semester survival till
    Recognition mid-March. This put's a whole new light on it all.
