    Cap color is gonna be gray.
    Not quite sure of the lanyard though?

    Any ideas on what class of 2017's motto gonna be?

    I think you'll have to ask the Class of 2017 that question.

    After they decide upon it?

    Class of 2017!
    Thought it'd be fun to try and come up with a catchy motto and...who knows? maybe it'll be what the Commandant may choose?

    Instead of googling, I wonder if the classes that have gone before us could state what their motto was so we'll know what's already taken.

    I believe lanyard color is yet to be determined, because it is based on squadron. :smile:

    If you ever dream of beating us, wake up and apologize.

    We didn't get to pick ours, and I don't think most classes do. It was given to us during basic and I think that is the norm now. Here are the ones I remember

    2009 Our time
    2010 Strength Within
    2011 Endless Horizons
    2012 Never Falter, Never Fail (not a good one during basic)
    2013 Best to be Seen
    2014 Like a Machine
    2015 One Fight One Team

    Really?

    That's interesting to know...can't think why they would take that away from the class though. Have to ask when I'm up there this summer.

    I've got a good one if we get to choose it.

    --Know no fear--

    As in, we are the USAFA Class of 2017, and we shall know no fear.

    They gave it to us on either day one or two, so I assume they decided it was preferable to rally behind a motto early. At least we pick our exemplars.

    On an unrelated note, I was always pulling for "Livin' the dream!" Unfortunately I don't think it would flow as well with 2017 as it would've with the last few class years.

    The cadet BCT commmander chooses the motto of the incoming class. In this case, that will be blond giant Nate Bratka (from all the "eating basics on the footprints" pictures last year).

    Almost. Silver still belongs to 2013 for now. It's all yours when you get your class colored cap on 27 June :thumb:.

    Can't say I expected any different. Ah well, all in good fun.

    My current worst fear: making eye contact with him on I-day, because he will know that I know who he is.

    Also, I don't feel like being a snack food. Thank god for "Permission to touch?"

    Screaming only works for so long. I found the "coming up from your blind spot and softly whispering into your ear about the displeasure I felt in an action you took" to be especially effective.
