    USAFA lost one of its own last night. A 2nd class cadet was killed in a car accident on base. Since his name has not been officially released, I won't print it here, but please pray for his family and his friends in the cadet wing.

    Here's a toast to the host...

    My prayers go out to the cadet's family and friends! It is never easy to go through this kind of tragedy, but during the holiday season, it just seems that much harder. God Bless the family!

    I will keep them in my prayers as well. A sad reminder for us to always treasure our loved ones...unlike appointments and nominations, they are irreplaceable.

    A terrible loss

    We all are so saddened by this news. Our thoughts and prayers go to his family, friends, squad, wing and entire Air Force Family. While we did not know him personally, we do know so much of what he's been through the last few years and we can identify with that. We very much feel a loss.

    Sympathy to Family and the Cadet Wing

    I also heard of this through the rumor mill, including his name. I am confused, however. Was he a C2C at USAFA or was he still at the Prep school?

    He was a C2C Management Major, I believe. His name was released on Saturday night -- but I won't post since this still isn't on the Academy website. He lost control of the car on black ice and hit a tree.

    Deatils are now posted on the Academy website -- they weren't there the last time I looked. But you can read the article now.

    Sadly, while driving to a wedding reception at A-Hall this weekend, we could see the emergency vehicles at the scene from the windows.

    My thoughts are with his friends and family now.
