What a great and memorable event. Aside from the obvious emotion and anticipation of handing over your child, the Academy does such a good job of managing us parents. All of the current Cadets couldn't have been more polite and friendly. Any questions were greeted with genuine respect and a well worded response. The Administration went out of its way to advise and welcome us. They also gave great context on how we should feel and transition as parents. The final Oath ceremony was the highlight for me. What they accomplished in 8 hours with our kids was amazing. The band and ceremony was perfect. Those of you who are current cadets or have graduated have my immense respect. Thank you for making R-Day such a memorable event.
