For many, there were celebrations last night; for others, like you said, it is a hard pill to swallow. The "others" wanted to properly complete courses, have the extra 40 days to prepare for outprocessing, next base, select next years cadet leadership, etc.No surprise to see this. It’s the prudent thing to do, and I am sure similar scenarios have been discussed at other SAs. Health and mission accomplishment (producing new officers to meet AF needs) are the drivers in the must-have category. Everything else is in the nice to do category. It will be a tough pill to swallow after 4 years of hard work to not have the same week of events as previous classes. 2020 has an opportunity to distinguish itself by rising to the occasion.
Compared to the USNA Virtual graduation, it looks like they made out the best of any graduating Service Academy class in 2020.so sad for all those graduating and their families to not get to participate in this long awaited ceremony
