So many friends and family ask or say no big deal, it's the Air Force. Why only 4 weeks? Is this their Bootcamp? Should we mark the occasion? Or wait until he finishes college and the Commissioning Ceremony. I feel after reading what little I could find online, most don't understand the rigors of what these cadets have to do and think he will have to do Bootcamp after he commissions. I thought this Field Training was their Bootcamp, and after commissioning they are sent directly to their respective training base to learn their jobs, and then get their assignment?
