Thank You for that explanation. Though I have an idea may I ask you how exactly will they not be the same?A-Day is Acceptance Day, when the basics are accepted into the Cadet Wing. There is a parade and formal joining of the basics into the rest of the cadets on the field. After which, they receive their 4th class shoulder boards and are real Cadets.
Parents weekend is over Labor Day weekend at which time you can spend about 3 days with your cadet off base.
Be aware, they will not be the same person you left on I Day.
Thank you for that - I was hopeful that was what you meant. I look forward to that.My DD is class of 2020. I don't mean not the same in a bad way. Over those few weeks, they grow, mature, and gain a confidence and poise about themselves that can only happen after successfully completing the challenges. They go in as a teen or young 20 year old, and come out a young adult ready to be on their own.
