    On Facebook, I see some postings mentioning "red dots", and a map of the Academy which includes the Cadet Area. I see red dots and red areas. Anyone know what this is about? (Maybe it's something I'm not supposed to know about)!!!

    I don't recall coming across anything of the sort ... could you give us an example (ie. a link) to where you see this?

    We asked our son the same thing today since we were also curious. (Keep in mind this explanation is all coming from a 4/c cadet!) Evidently a red dot in general indicates a sexual assault has taken place in that location. And apparently USAFA is very covered in red dots. So the comm is doing a green dot campaign where you get a green dot by doing something to help prevent sexual assault/harassment.

    Edited to add that we saw the references on the MLIC (My Life is Cadet) pages on Facebook.

    I don't know where that picture came from, but I am not 100% sure of its validity. I could be wrong, but I think someone just took the picture from google earth and put red dots all over it.

    This is totally off topic but is the Air Force Tennis team pretty good?

    The "red dot map" on MLIC is joke. Urbonman is right, someone took a picture from google maps and photoshopped in all the dots.
