    At the end of this month, I'll be attending the Mission Command Conference at USMA as a mentor/speaker. Is the MCC for the First Class only, or is it all classes?

    You could PM my cadet; he might know.

    Last year, it was just for the firsties. This year, though, the AY12-2 calendar from the Dean's office has the second day of the conference (25 APR) set aside as the "Battle Command Conference" with no classes scheduled for plebes through firsties.

    I just came back from my overnight visit, and my cadet said that they will not have classes during "Battle Command Conference". I can only assume they will be attending as well as the upperclassmen.

    Sir, I have been told that it is for all cadets. There are no classes on that day (25 APR).

    I'm assuming the 24th must be for '12 only.

    I still don't know what exactly cadets are doing during the BCC but it seems pretty cool, lots of great men and women seem to be congregating here
