A good friend of mine just started his tour as an (AOC) at USAFA. He wrote us an interesting message yesterday, in which he mentioned that he was appalled at the lack of basic leadership principles. For example, when the new cadets (Basics, I guess they're known in USAFA parlance?) sleep in the field, the cadet cadre is bussed back to the dorms to sleep in their rooms. Is this a longstanding way of doing business for USAFA?
