    Has anyone from 2020 received their squadron and those specifics? On my portal, it is the last item (everything else is completed) and it says that it will be available in mid June. I can't see it yet. I assume they are still working on putting people in groups but just want to make sure I'm not the only one that hasn't received that info yet. Thank you

    My DD has not received squadron assignments yet either. When it happens there will be much chatter on here for sure.

    DD said the "rumor mill" has tomorrow - the 15th - as the magic date. We'll see. Unfortunately, if true, I won't know for a couple more days since she is out on a camping trip (kayaking, zip-lining, etc.) with a few friends. The types of things we parents just hold our breath and hope for no accidents/injuries this close to I-Day.:eek:

    USAFA goes to great lengths when making Squadron assignments. They need to wait until they have a "final" commitment from Appointees and then they start building the Squadrons as they don't want one with everyone from CA or all males or all IC's or all ???? It is my understanding that they are doing their best to create a good balance in the Squadrons.

    Once the Squadrons are done, then you should receive your reporting time as they stagger the reporting times by Squadron on I-Day (or at least that is how they have done it in the past).

    Did you get a medical waiver?

    If they do things the same way as previous years: if you have a medical waiver, you report at the same time as Aggressors.

    DD received a report time of 0700 several weeks ago. We were told this was just a "place holder" and standard time given to all until squadrons were assigned, then she would receive her real report time.

    We are expecting assignments to be made and posted on portals by the end of this week. Please note that ALL appointee kit items must be complete before your assignment will be posted. If your kit is not done your assignment will be withheld until it is complete.

    Specific reporting times will be made at the same time the squadron assignments are posted.

    DS also received report time of 0700 several weeks ago. Since that seemed to be just a place holder, does anyone know what typically is the last report time for I Day? Just curious since we are dropping him off, and our flight back home is scheduled around 2PM.
