    Combat Boot Reqs

    I'm a 3 dig at USAFA and about to upgrade boots to something lighter and more breathable than the issued boots. Does anyone know the specific requirements for ABU boots at the Academy? The CSP just says that they need to be Sage Green, but that's about all I can find. I'm thinking about...

    Cadet Drum and Bugle Corps/ Jazz Ensemble

    Just a few questions: How competitive is the jazz ensemble?

In regards to the D&B Corp, how involved is the marching and...

    Air Force Jobs and Majors

    This is a very interesting breakdown of the careers. Does anyone have any clue about how many 2011's applied for flight positions/how many were rejected? I think I have heard that it is usually just a little over half the class that even wants flying positions.

    Falcon Scholar Question

    I agree with Roman from what I have been told. Rec letters, essays and ALO interviews are not needed. The prep school WILL fill out a form I think (based on the candidate's performance), which is then evaluated by the director of admissions at the Academy. Also the DODMERB does not need to...

    Falcon Scholar Question - Teacher recommendations

    Which prep school is he going to? They all have different policies. Bottom line: If he has really good relationships with his teachers from high school, there is no reason why he shouldn't ask for a letter of recommendation. Many of the prep school teachers will write letters of...
