    DD found out that she will, most likely & in all probability, be assigned to her Dad's squadron: Cadet Sq. 18, The Nightriders, aka Horney18

    Yeah, sounds like they got away with something. The mascot is a unicorn.

    Ok, that's funny! My DD has started referring to the squad as 'Horny Unicorns'. DH has given up trying to correct her realizing she's just doing it to get a reaction.

    The thing of it is that if she is initially assigned to her "legacy" squadron then she may not be able to stay there when they do the shuffle after the 3C year. My daughter has spent her 4C and her 3C years in one squadron and is now legacying into the squadron from which her dad graduated so she can graduate from that squadron as well.
    But all things seem seem to be in flux on how this works, as legacies get more and more prevalent. I saw on FB that legacies in the future will be treated as only part of the equation and don't trump the system, so I guess there would be no guarantee that she would move to her legacy squadron anyway.
    In the meantime, enjoy the dad/daughter camaraderie that will develop! While my husband initially was not in favor of his girl at USAFA, he couldn't be more proud now! Congrats and good luck!

    Thanks!
    DD was told about the legacy assignment when she went to the Appointee Tour this past week. No guarantees of course, but very kewl to think it could happen. The other cadets seemed pretty sure about it, but the only thing that's constant is change, of course. I actually think there's a greater chance that she'll get the legacy assignment after that 2-year shuffle and be placed in the Pink Panther Squad. My husband's best friend and classmate has a son who graduated in 2012 in his dad's squadron.
