    For those with appointments, for the link that is "travel arrangements" and is the Wagonlit information page, what needs to be done if I'm going with my parents on their dime. What is "Point of Contact"? My dad's name? He and I were both kind of confused.

    Also, I got the boot letter online. I called the mail order number and the sales rep told me he was not authorized to sell me any boots. I told him I had a letter specifically telling me I can buy via phone, but he told me he couldn't do the selling to me over the phone.

    Call back and ask if you can fax a copy of the letter to them and could they check into it. Then call them back and try again.

    The Point of Contact and Travel stuff sort of confused me too. I just put down my parents for points of contact. For the travels stuff I put my parents down again for points of contact and just declined the hotel room/plane ticket. Hopefully that is right!

    "declined the hotel room/plane ticket"
    If you are talking about your trip for R-Day be sure to keep either a receipt for your plane ticket or a record of how far you drove (or were driven) to report. At some point you will have an opportunity to turn that information/receipt in and be reimbursed for your travel. The money will go into your Cadet account. I believe that you can also be reimbursed for an overnight stay depending on how far away you live from West Point. We drove my Cadet up for R-Day and about $400 was deposited in her account for reimbursement.

    I personally went to an AFEES and tried the boots on myself, if you can I would suggest it. The sales rep was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what I needed and where to get them. It also turns out that sizes vary depending on brand of boots. For example in normal shoe I am 11 's and in belville combat boots I am a ten and 1/2. I didn't know that until I put elevens on and realized that I had quite a bit of room. :shake:
