    Hello!

    I finally received the Offer of Appointment!

    On one of the forms it asks for my "Home of Record", heres the problem - I'm not exactly sure what my home of record is. I was born in the Philippines, and then became a "Military Brat", I'm currently in Seattle attending college so does that make Seattle my Home of Record? And my parents are overseas too if thats relevant information at all.

    And one more thing for the airline ticket if I choose the option of choosing my own travel arrangements, can I choose another city to depart from(not Seattle) since I would love to visit family members before the Academy :smile: and leave from that city instead.

    Thanks!

    from my understanding, home of record is where you live before you report. it's where you report from, and therefore where they'll pay for you to arrive from. For me, although i am a Florida resident, since i lived in Ohio (military brat too in case you're wondering how I did that), Ohio was my home of record and that's where they paid for me to come from. As far as I know, you have to put Seattle as your home of record, but if you want to make your own arrangements, there is just a certain amount that they'll refund you. A little more work for you, but doable

    When my daughter reports to basic, does the academy fly her there? Do parents usually drop them off?

    The academy will pay to fly your daughter from her home to the USAFA. If you choose to fly there with her and drop her off and say goodbye, that cost is on you.

    Thanks for the response!
    Just to make sure I'm going to call the Office to confirm everything :thumb:

    @ AHS74
    Yes, the Academy pays for the cadet's transportation but not for the family's, understandably. Congratulations to your daughter :smile:
