    It was done at various times by each squadron. I commissioned my brother this afternoon. Great to be part of it.

    Thanks for graduating 2010!!! I look forward to watching all you guys graduate tomorrow. It has to be one of the most exciting college graduations ever. Great Job over the last 4 years.

    Later,

    Fun fact: LTG Gould knits. He gave my brother a hat he knitted him. The whole thing was very strange to me.

    Gen Gould is an amazing guy.

    The other fun fact is that him and his wife, Phylis, have 2 sons. BOTH sons kept up the family tradition of following their Dad's footsteps by attending the AFA.

    Mom,(Phylis) hasn't been too shabby in the AF either!

    Fun fact, got a haircut in the community center a few months ago right next to him. Good times!

    Bullet has different classifications of respect in his own code. 20 yrs in the military, I only once heard that he would sacrifice a part of his body for a "boss". It was Gen Gould.

    The AFA is very lucky to have a man like him.

    Bullet said at the commissioning Gen Gould was great and spent time with each cadet and their family. Not only that, but in some cases he was their photographer!

    Back on topic...no rain for tomorrow so I bet the parade will be picture perfect!

    You know...I was VERY tired last night...and I was thinking of TWO excellent guys!

    Grant is, as you correctly stated, in 2011.

    Charles "Charlie" Arden is 2010...

    I guess the pilots are doing their pre-flight check right now for todays fly-by.

    I wonder how many of the cadets will think to themselves that is one of the things I want to check off of my bucket list one day.
