I am a parent of a 2017 DS who is currently in INDOC. I'm coming here from the Parents FB page hoping to get clarification as to how we should address our DD's and DS's. Now that they are in INDOC, are they PLEBE CANDIDATE or CANDIDATE? Originally this seemed like a very clear answer. The 2017 Reporting In document states that mail should be addressed to PLEBE CANDIDATE [students full name], 2017. Capt. Kennedy, in a power point presentation the first day referred to them as PLEBE CANDIDATES. The USMMA website refers to them as PLEBE CANDIDATES. The USMMA press releases refer to the 238 PLEBE CANDIDATES that reported on July 3rd. The confusion arose on the Parents FB page when it was brought up that our DD's and DS's may not be receiving mail if it is addressed to them as PLEBE CANDIDATE. Some of the parents are saying they are not PLEBE CANDIDATES yet, they are CANDIDATES during INDOC and they are not a PLEBE CANDIDATE until AFTER Indoc is over.
