    Wow, AFA Losing Cadets!

    Past experiences at military academies may give you an idea, but the system is much more clean. If cadre suspected that someone was not able to hack it and that they should leave, they spoke with their AOC about it. The AOC would give some perspective, ask to see documentation of the issue and...

    C4C considering leaving after BCT

    While Academics certainly are a VERY important part of the Academy, I want to remind parents that Cadets are NOT here for the education. The Academy's mission is to educate, train, and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service...

    Wow, AFA Losing Cadets!

    I took the time to aggregate all of the questions I saw since my last post and will answer each here as I am able. Where did the encouragement to step up the mental game come from? It came from all in charge of BCT. The policies governing standards in BCT were written to be a little more...

    Wow, AFA Losing Cadets!

    I apologize for the conception that I was out to call anyone a liar. I was more of the mind that things needed clarification because people were unwittingly giving out information that was not correct. I have the correct information (I assure you) and want to share what I can to let people...

    2012 USAFA Summer Seminar Students

    Can't agree with you more Cook. I went SS session C last year as well (Raptor 28 hooah) and the first night, the Colonel in charge of SS got up in front of us. After all the warning about Doolie for a Day, he asked, "Who thinks they want to go here next year?" Every hand in that hall went up...

    I thought that April 15th was the deadline for the couple hundred appointments that went out. This is the first I've heard about May 1st being a thing. And if we are to know by May 15th one way or another I would expect that they would want more time than from May 1st to make those decisions...

    Thanks MD. I'm MD as well actually. Heard that the candidate from my district hasn't accepted yet. Hoping he isn't waiting to make the decision and actually doesn't want it.
