    Parent of new cadet...
    We have a friend with a son at USAFA and they have found a few alternative forms of communication like "When2write" and "WebGuy". They have gotten about 20 photos of their cadet/son through these services. Does any such service exist for USMA?

    We never got a photo from R-day.

    I would strongly suggest opening a Facebook account and asking to join WP Class of 2017 mom and dads account. This is a great resource to connect and find pics

    West Point has a Flickr, Instagram, Twitter and Google+ accounts with photos. You'll have to dig through them to find ones of your NC.

    The service write2them.org turns emails to the basic cadets from family and friends into letters the cadets will receive in thier mailboxes the very next day. The cadets can't write back using the service though. Mail just gets to them faster. It is available to WP, annapolis, and CGA new cadets also. Just go to their web site and sign up.

    @ProudofourMilitary: there are so many free sources of pictures for parents of NCs...not sure why you are paying for them from the plebenet links.

    Additional sources: if your NC attends Protestant chaplain's time, check out USMA OCF on facebook. Also, MHT Chaplains pics are posted on the page mentioned above for 2017 parents. They are also posted on West Point Moms. Join those pages for plenty of free pics.

    good grief, you realize being apart is part of the process, right?
