    WWII bombs found today near German base

    Tough luck those citizens of Schweinfurt had falling under US Army control. They could have been "liberated" by the Soviet Union & enjoyed the workers paradise of East Germany for the next 44 years or so, but those are the breaks.

    Recruiter just won't stop zero-ing in on my kid...

    @snowieWI3 If the school adviser is always in the room, that's good. Then she should meet with the adviser privately, explain the situation, & request the adviser to be present as a witness when she tells the recruiter she's not interested & he should stop trying to recruit her. Your DD is...

    Recruiter just won't stop zero-ing in on my kid...

    I like the 'block his number' idea. The young lady should tell him with an adult school employee present (witness)to stop trying to recruit her. No means No. I think one would be hard pressed not to realize that by her facial expressions, answers, & body language, she's uncomfortable. Maybe he...

    @Napk1ns: The AFA Admissions website breaks down (w/definitions of terms) the selection process by determining your WCS, Weighted Composite Score. This is made up of your Academic & Extracurricular Composites. Lastly, the Selection Committee determines your Selection Composite: the prior...

    What happens after BCT ends?

    Agree with all the above posts. I found the Parents Liaison Ms. Rose Nikovits a great help. This site has her contact as well as a lot more related info. https://www.usafa.edu/parents/ PS: Hotels & rental car reservations fill up early for PW/Labor Day weekend. Reserve early (ASAP). Lots of...

    Daughter to VMI?

    And another thing, there's no outside non-campus personnel roaming the grounds after visiting hours as might occur at public campuses. People who attend a party & prior to leaving, check out what else isn't locked down, etc.

    Commandant suspended

    @Humey I tried to walk back that post the next day but it seems that attempt wasn't completely successful. I agree with your post above.

    Daughter to VMI?

    First of all welcome! Can't speak to VMI but my DD went to the AFA & there she was told that the overwhelming amount of these types of incidents occur when alcohol is present. Therefore, one should stay out of those situations for this as well as the fact that you are responsible to report...

    Commandant suspended

    What I don't understand is that if the Generals' card wasn't working thus her expenses had to be charged to the cadets' govt. card, why did the general have to pay the cadet back? And if I remember the Air Force Times article correctly, the general took her time paying the cadet back the amount...

    USAFA Waiver Review

    @Nms6402 Can't see them requesting a waiver for a candidate who does not have a nomination at this time of year. Maybe next year when they're reviewing the NWL for Supt./VPOTUS appointments.

    President Trump Pardons Accused War Criminals

    I recently watched the docudrama Leavenworth on Starz. It is about the military justice system regarding former Army Lt. Clint Lorance. The director presented a fair case for both sides. The story was presented in such a way that as soon as I decided his guilt/innocence, an argument was...
