    Hey everyone. I just accepted my appointment to the Air Force Academy class of 2018. I'd like to hear from others who will also be joining me at the Academy in June. Cant wait to start the year, and am looking forward to meeting some of you.

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations on your appointment! Wishing you, my DS and all the class of 2018 the best. I hope you find this forum as encouraging and helpful as DS and I have over the past few weeks.

    Congratulations to all 2018 appointees! Remember though, there will be no Class of 2018 Cadets until somewhere around August 6th :thumb:

    In all seriousness though, tell your parents/friends to address any letters to "Basic Cadet (your name here)" and include the squadron and flight for 2nd BCT to ensure letters arrive quickly. My friends and I all got grief at some point during the Beast for receiving letters addressed to "Cadet so and so" since, as we were reminded by our cadre, we weren't yet cadets!

    When will the Squadrons be known to have that info to pass on?

    Once appointed, your mailing address will be posted on the portal (and you get an email.)

    Interesting point about using "Basic Cadet". The portal only states:

    Cadet <firstname> <lastname>
    PO Box 1234
    USAF Academy, CO 80841

    Good to know about using "Basic"! :biggrin:

    You'll know what squadron you're in a week or two before basic (because that affects your reporting time on I-Day). You'll only know what flight you're in after you've arrived at the Academy and gotten past the footprints.
