    The Indoc Parade is on Friday at 1600. I live locally and plan to attend. I will try to take lots of photos and get them posted as soon as I can. Most likely will be up by Saturday evening.

    Thank you so very much 2KPsons~We parents who cannot attend without flying at least 1000 miles appreciate it. I hope that one day I can return the favor sometime. Question; Will anyone out there in KP land or Parent Land be video taping it and putting it up on the USMMA website or youtube? Thanks!:wink:

    I heard that the Academy is closed to outsiders during Indoc so check before you go to the parade.

    The Academy IS closed to outsiders during Indoc, and will continue to remain closed (see the notice posted on USMMA Parents' Page).
    The parade will take place (weather permitting) on the football field; visitors can watch from the stands.
    I'll try to get photos up quickly. Can't promise to get closeups of every PC, though :)

    Webcast Link

    Last year it was easy to find or someone posted the link on message board. I do not remember. I do remember it was a closeup of the Flag prior to its starting. Also the audio was really bad, but you did get to watch. I was never able to pick my son out. :confused: But it at least gives you the feeling of being there and taking part.

    I will be there taking tons of photos

    Hello to all, wow what a wild 2 weeks! I've gone through every emotion possible, as I'm sure everyone else has. I just wanted to inform those that won't be able to make it there I will be bringing a 300mm lense and 4 gigs of memory for a digital camera, so I promise to zoom in on as many PC's as possible. I will foward a link to the parent's page as well as on this site. I hope to capture what will be a memorable event.

    A huge thank you to those parents who have posted that they will be attending the Parade Friday, and taking pictures and posting them. Speaking for those of us who cannot make the trip to NY for this, we really appreciate your generous spirt and actions more than you can know. I have been able to tell from the pictures posted on the website that our plebe candidates are already standing taller and marching staighter than when we dropped them off two weeks ago!
