    Is there a website, Facebook page or any online place for parents of appointees to connect?

    I have not found one, but I would be interested. The parents club in my state of AZ does not appear to be active.

    My Life is Cadet Parent: USAFA Parents United and USAFA Parent Resource are the two Facebook pages for all parents regardless of class year.

    Thanks for the response, but I cannot find the first one. Can I get a clarification on the name? Appreciate it.

    Usually a parent of one of the appointees starts a Parent's FB page and maintains it as administrator. It involves some work and members are usually vetted by other members or by sending appointment letter scans/images for verification. If one of the 2020 appointee parents are up to the task, you can start that page anytime. The appointees will usually make their own page (and they are sooo much better and quicker at it :) Hope this helps.

    There are usually pages created by parents for the individual BCT squadrons, class year, and for USAFA parents inclusive of all years. Most of these pages are closed and "secret" and can't be found by searching within Facebook. This happened last summer I believe when there were threats made to active duty service member/families that were traced through Facebook connections. I'm not sure about an appointee parent's page though.

    Would you happen to have a URL because I can't find it either with that name. Thanks.

    I am one of the new admins for My Life is Cadet Parent: USAFA Parents United. This is a "secret" FB page and probably the reason why you won't find it. Keeps our conversations and members information a little bit more secure (if there is such a thing). If your son/daughter has accepted their appointment, please message me from this forum and I'll explain to you how i can get you added to the FB page. Thank you.. and congrats to all!

    The parent's club in AZ is very active. The Facebook page is secondary to all the activities that we are involved in. PM me.
