    This may be an odd questions but i'm not familiar with all of the restrictions imposed upon new cadets before recognition.Can C4C's have over the ear style of headphones after BCT/Parent's weekend or is that not allowed?Thank you.

    Yes you may. There are no longer media restrictions for 4 degrees at the Academy, which means you may use over the ear headphones and earbuds following the end of BCT.

    Really? They don't leave it up to individual squadrons to make that decision. I don't doubt it - just surprised.

    Yes. As far as media restrictions go, it's not a matter of what individual squadrons want to do anymore. As of last year, C4Cs cannot have their media use restricted at all.

    Or a new Wing Training Officer...I would stand by on making assumptions on media privileges for this fall.

    I don't think the Wing TO will be able to control it, but you may be right. We'll have to see when the year starts!

    To be clear, this is what you mean by "no more media restrictions at USAFA", right? This is from the spring ROEs from this past semester:

    d. Fourth Class Cadets will be allowed to use academic related media within their squadron areas only during Academic Call to Quarters. From COB Friday (1630) to ACQ Sunday, Fourth Class Cadets are authorized non-academic media. Media use is allowed while actively working out in the Cadet gym. Fourth Class Cadets may use media with headphones only both in their rooms and in the gym. Speakers and game systems of any kind will not be allowed for any reason.

    To me, it still looks like there is some form of media restriction, at least as recently as this spring, but that's just me.

    Not saying you're wrong. I don't have a copy of the ROEs but I'm sure you're right.

    What's is it that they say about the rules? The only thing constant is change? ;)
