DS just received a letter that I can only describe as a Falcon LOA. It is from Col. Benyshek, Director of Admissions and in part says: "Congratulations! I would like to inform you that based upon your status as a Falcon Foundation School student, I plan to recommend you to the Academy Board for appointment to the Class of 2016. This letter serves as my commitment to recommend you to the Academy Board for an appointment if you meet all admissions requirements. The Academy Board must approve my recommendation and it is contingent upon satisfactory completion of your Falcon Foundation School program." Now check me on this as we have never had the pleasure to see a LOA, but isn't this a LOA? Maybe not the traditional LOA but a Falcon specific LOA. Another interesting thing about the letter is that it was forwarded from his MOC. Even though it is addressed to him, he has not received the original yet. My guess is that it was sent to all his MOCs to encourage them to nominate him. We are just thankful that the MOC was thoughtful enough to forward it on after the MOC also gave him a nomination. What a great Christmas present!
