Recognition begins Thursday March 15. When it's completed sometime on Saturday, the class of 2015 will be "recognized" as upperclassmen. Among other things, this means being able to wear civilian clothes, actually wearing your backpack on your back rather than carrying it in your left hand, no longer running the strips of the T-zo, no more beatings, and finally able to close their dormroom door during the day. We recall the phone call we got from our son after he was "recognized" last year and the elation we heard in his voice was priceless. Our thoughts, prayers, and wishes go out to 2015...you're only a couple days away from your prop and wings. Similarly, our thoughts go to all the parents of 2015 who've survived a long year supporting your cadet. We'll certainly be having a toast in honor of 2015, their parents, and the rest of the wing this weekend.
