    I'm a little confused about this. If our son (appointee, class of 2014) already signed up for AOG lifetime membership, do we as his parents still have to pay $216 for a separate four-year membership to be able to access Web Guy? I'm not saying the price isn't worth it, but since I just recently got laid off (with no severance!) this is suddenly not a no-brainer expenditure for us, especially since we're trying to set money aside for Parent's Weekend.

    Thanks.

    I think so... Your son gets his AOG membership services, access, benefits, etc. for Life, but unfortunately, for you to get WebGuy, magazine, discounts, etc., you will have to become "associate" members.
    Congrats to you and your son!!! It is almost showtime!

    Bundy - we asked about this at Orientation. What they explained was that the cadets with the lifetime membership WOULD get access to webguy, etc., but not until after A day. Since of course the main reason most parents do this is to see the pics, hang out on the forums there and see the schedule during Beast, that's not going to be of much help to you.

    He does not have to do the life membership at this point - it becomes more expensive each year, but not a whole lot if he waits one year. If money is tight and you were planning on paying for that you could hold off a year, or just have him do the deductions out of his monthly pay (that's what we're doing). If money becomes less of an issue, you could always reimburse him or pay for something else instead.
