    I've noticed some cadets have an orange small pack on their belt in the back. Anyone know what this means?

    Also, there was some mention of a field day of competition on July 14. Anyone have any information on this also.

    Thanks.

    The orange pack is a reflective vest. Basic cadets that have the privilege of carrying that vest are road guards. When the basics cross a road, the road guards protect the rest of the flight by stopping oncoming traffic.

    Field day is a morning of competitions between the squadrons--races, tug of war, timed obstacle course, etc. It helps mark the end of BCT I, before the march to Jacks Valley (BCT II) the next day.

    Field day is also a transition day for the upperclass cadets. Those who are serving as cadre for Beast 1 may move to different rooms, different jobs for the following three weeks or may start their three week summer leave that day.
