    Clicked on the live feed from the Pentagon Channel to sneak a peak at USAFA graduation coverage and saw a newly minted leuitenant from our parents' club receive his diploma! Congrats to 2013 graduates! You did it.

    Great day!

    it was a fantastic day!

    Correction, it was a fantastic few days. Awards in the Field House, Department Awards, Commissioning, Parades, and of course ... GRADUATION DAY! We had cold, heat, clouds, sun, rain drops, hail and WWII Classics. Oh yeah did I mention 1,000+ 2nd LTs to boot.

    Congratulations Class of 2013 - Best To Be Seen

    It was a pleasure to watch the Graduation Ceremony live stream. I only know a couple of the graduates through their parents, but I felt so proud of each and every one of them. It was exciting to know that my DS was a part of this celebration as a new C3C. It was also wonderful to see these graduates enjoy the honor of the WWII Warbirds flyover along with the hat toss. A special thank you to those pilots and everyone who made this flyover and tribute possible. What a great way for the past to honor these newly commissioned USAF 2nd Lieutenants!!

    Underclassmen in parade dress were members of the outstanding squadron.

    Various underclassmen were doing volunteer graduation details such as escorting and security.
    Additionally, the entire cadet wing was mandated to attend graduation in the stadium.
