NEED ANY AND ALL PRACTICAL ADVICE RE: A-DAY This year on Saturday, Aug 13, 2011 Parade at 10am, dismiss at approx 1pm, return 12hrs later. 1. Is that more or less right? 12 hours? or can we have him for a bit on the next day, Sunday? 2. I have heard cadets are not allowed in Thayer Hotel rooms. Is that true? If so, we might need to switch our reservation off-post so he can just sleep in peace. Good Idea? 3. What are cadets allowed/not allowed to do as far as off-post activities are concerned? And what's around there? ANY OTHER PRACTICAL ADVICE from you 2014s? What made it successful..or not? What would you have liked to do most? Should we bring anything from home? What is the ideal Care Package? Thanks in advance to all.
