Out of curiosity, I was wondering... Is it usual or unusual for the MOC to contact the appointee and congratulate them? What is the time frame for congratulations? (before academy notification, before I-day etc.) We haven't heard a peep (mail, phone etc) from my son's MOC regarding his appointment to the USAFA. He was nominated by a senator and his member of congress. Do the MOC's bother with congratulations if you are not allocated to their slot? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
