i have a few more questions about new cadets to the academy. 1) i read somewhere that they get laptops, are they new and do the cadets get to keep them forever? 2) how does the laundry service work? do they do their own laundry or does the academy take care of that? 3) do we need to buy boots for her and if so what are good womens boots that she can break in before bct? 4) i know the first year is very restrictive, when are cell phones allowed? can we skype with them once the school year has started, or when's the earliest? again many thanks to the helpful people on here.
