Can anybody comment on the Congressional Release portion of the form? In it you "can give permission to release information to your congressional representatives" which may include personnel, academic, athletic, and disciplinary records while at USAFA. What is the expectation/norm here? Do most incoming cadets give this permission? Is it unusual if a cadet doesn't? Does the academy or congressperson take a dim view of cadets who don't agree to release this kind of information before arriving on base? I ask not because my appointee is especially reluctant to provide it. His intentions are to do well at the academy, but in our present day culture that covets privacy, in which many young adults don't even want their parents to have access to records, I have a hard time understanding all the implications of this question. Does anybody have insight here?
