    Hey All:

    My New Cadet, Ken Skillman IV, is in Beast and it is driving me nuts not being able to find him in any R Day photos or videos on the USMA site. :frown: He attended the SLS last summer, so we decided to skip the cross country flights from California for a 90 second drop off. Now, I wish we had gone anyway. I saw that Facebook has a West Point Parents page, but I am wondering if there are any other sources of photos or videos?

    I am a consulting Civil Engineer, married 25 years (tomorrow) to my lovely wife, Rita Joy, who is the Assistant Director of HR at our local hospital. Our eldest, Ketrina, is a Junior at The Ohio State University with a dual major of biology and international studies. She is awaiting results for the MCAT she took a couple of weeks ago. Our youngest, Josh, is the techie in the family.

    I look forward to getting to know other West Point parents on this forum. :smile:

    kgs,
    If you get on facebook you will see so many pictures. The parents club coordinator, Deb, has done a great job with this site. Also, the pictures are posted on a flickr site, which you can access via facebook. Over the next few weeks, many parents will be posting links to their pictures (from plebe-net). You guys have a zillion pictures compared to what we had last year. You also have 5 more weeks of pictures coming your way. Take a few seconds and get on facebook...you will be happy w/ what you find. Also, you will meet other 2013 parents and be able to see the pictures they post.

    I remember what it was like searching the pictures for my son during Beast...that was two years ago but it seems like yesterday. This year I will be looking at the pictures too, but instead of new cadets, I'll be searching the faces of the cadre to find him. :smile:

    Check the USMA website for pictures too. There will be a CBT album under the link for the class: http://www.usma.edu/Class/2013/. Looks like there are no pictures posted yet, but keep checking back.

    Happy hunting!
