Leaving for the weekend


I will be attending USAFA Prep this year, and I am hopeful that I will be given an appointment to USAFA for the C/O 2023. My sister is getting married in October next year and I was wondering if there is a way I could go home that weekend for her wedding while being a Cadet 4th Class. Thank you!


With the proper paperwork, forms and permission, you should be able to go. Just start the paperwork well in advance.


I went to my brother's wedding two weeks after basic ended! The Academy is really good about letting you attend "once in a lifetime" events. Should be no issue. Just ask someone in your squadron about 6 weeks ahead of time to help you with the paperwork if you're still unfamiliar with it by then.
