    Good luck to all of the doolies prepping for recognition that begins tomorrow. Happy thoughts to all of the parents as well who will be waiting for that proud phone call on Saturday some time. I hear the class is ready.....

    Good luck and good wishes! My DS called tonight and said they are ready. I guess it is time to get reacquainted with The Webguy again!

    I feel so nervous for them! But I am sure they will all do great! Lots of prayers and love for C/O 2018!!!! (Even though none of them will read this until the weekend!)

    I talked to DS last night and am confident they will do great. They are excited to get "to" it and "through" it ! An important milestone in their journey. Wish you the best baileydb and am in hopes you get good news soon concerning your journey.

    The question isn't if the class of 2018 will get through it. I am sure they will all come out on the other side. They got this!!!! The question is can the parents make it? Or will we come out a little older and grayer on the other side? ;)

    You are absolutely right. Our Cadets are amazing! But I think I get a little older/grayer every few months. I thought the roller coaster (that many 2019 hopefuls are currently experiencing) would stop after DS secured his nomination. Then it was hoping for EA. Then it was hoping for an appointment from national pool. Then it was I-Day. Then it was BCT-1. Then it was BCT-2. Then it was A-Day. Now Recognition. After this weekend we get off the roller coaster, right? Haha. Not a chance. I think I'll just buckle my seat belt and get used to this new head of gray hair.

    e.cadet.18: the roller coaster does get easier. You learn to trust your son or daughter and the usaf which takes good care of them and also guides them in the right direction. Their decisions are now their own. It's nice when they ask for your opinion, but much of what they go through they don't share, and they shouldn't.
    My son loves being at USAFA and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He's had good weeks and bad weeks but always keeps positive. I have learned to let go and trust him to make his decisions and be here when he needs guidance from his parents.
    I couldn't be prouder of the man he's become.
    These attitudes will be important whether you are accepted at USAFA or attend plan B school. Wherever life takes you, stay positive and enjoy the ride!

    Our DD’s maturity (& happiness) was apparent after Recognition.

    Word is that they are on their way back from the rock and official recognition could come in 1.5 hours. Waiting for that call from DS with his prop and wings.!most likely will be tomorrow.

    I'm awaiting the "prop & wings" call as well. My phone will basically be tethered to me for the next 24 hrs.
