i have read that cadets are considered active duty. is this true? and is it considered the same active duty as, well, active duty? what i mean is, say a cadet serves six years after graduation, is that considered a ten year service time? also, i know that usma uses a very secure network. are cadets allowed to have devices such as ipods that use wifi? can they use the academy wifi on their ipods? lastly, and i know this may seem like a little presumptious, but are new cadets paid during cbt?
