I was told that not all of last year’s graduating class was commissioned because there was not enough officer slots available in the AF. Is this true? If it is, what do they do about the service commitment of the graduates not commissioned?
The current Cadet Wing strength is 4,525, so that "limitation" in the official US Code is being ignored.The maximum number (Traditionally) for the academy is 4,000. Since 2003, the secretary of the air force has been allowed to increase that number TOTAL at the academy to 4400.
No, no, no. Don't count on this. Congress can change the wing strength. They can put the number back to 4,000 if they so desire.USAFA will always have 1,300 per class,
