R-Day Pictures for the Class of 2012

Wow. Thanks for posting them up. I loved Chet Gorgon's for his view of landscape but the POA person/s truly caught the resolute look on some of the faces. Hate to sound all mushy & such but those kids will never know the honesty, commitment, integrity & even fear that shines through on those sweet faces. Bless them every one. Looking forward to seeing USNA & USAFA shots. I've been so enjoying the GCA few I've seen. These kids are just awesome! KP is the last to "go in"! I'll be happy when I get to see them all in total as they begin this year. GOOD LUCK YOUNG PEOPLE OF THE SA WORLD!!
Thanks so much for posting the links, Antoinette! :smile:

The smugmug gallery contains the only photo of my son that I've found in all the R-Day pics published online. It's nice to see that he got his gear and he looks good to go!
You are welcome! I hope all those New Cadets are all good to go. They are awesome.
Pointer View R-Day pictures

The July 3 Pointer View is worth the download. The R-Day pictures are on page 9 and are different from ones I have seen on the 2012 usma.edu web page. I finally found fewandproud16! The R-Day article is informative. There is also a very nice writeup of a 2012 prior service New Cadet on page 6.
