    Unless things change from past years, the new cadets get to attend the concert and fireworks.

    Yes. They march down at Trophy Point and everybody cheers. One cadet from each state also present their state flag at the opening of the concert. Pretty cool. Seats are reserved for them and they get to attend the concert and watch the fireworks. And then, its back to the baracks!::
    Anyway my family, some friends and i will be there as we have been for the past 4 years. It is a great way to celabrate the 4th.:smile:

    That's great. How do they decide who takes the flag from your state?

    Good question, but I don't know the answer. If you find out how they decide, let us know after Beast. :thumb:

    They probably pick the most outstanding cadet from each state...or the one that stands out the most. :rolleyes:
