R Day - Who Attends

Our cadet graduates 3 months from today. I remember everything that happened on R-Day as if it was yesterday. I'm so glad to have those memories.

We also arrived several days early and tried to get familiar with the immediate area. (Highland Falls is only part of the immediate area.) We took the bus tour, ate in some really good restaurants, and even met some of her future classmates.

I completely agree that it should be the decision of your cadet candidate, but this really is a unique experience and you'll never have the opportunity to share this with your cadet again. So, I can recommend that if you're on the fence, plan on being there. Just keep in mind that there is lots of walking and quite a few hills. It could be challenging with some elderly relatives who may have difficulties with this.

Congratulations to all in the class of 2013!!
