we are traveling to usafa sunday so my husband and i can see the place our ds wants to attend; and so our son can 'shadow' a cadet for the day on monday. we are returning home tuesday - a quick trip with a purpose. son attended summer seminar but we have never seen the academy. son has a nomination, LOA, we are just waiting for the BFE. as parents we really want him to understand what he is considering not because we want him to change his mind but because we want him to make an informed decision. we are not a military family. any suggestions on places, things, questions we should make sure we do or ask while at the usafa on monday? also, can we/ should we take the cadet who has to lead our ds around for the day out to dinner?
