    Trying to make arrangements for A~Day but can't find the date of when it will be held for the class of 2021. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you! Just looked at the calendar. I'm assuming that is the same as transition days

    Do you think it is safe to go ahead & purchase airline tickets based on A Day unofficially being on Tuesday, August 8th?

    Yes. A-Day is always the Tuesday following the end of basic barring very extraneous circumstancss.

    Acceptance Day. There's a parade officially accepting the basics as cadets in the cadet wing. The new cadets get their shoulder boards and a few hours of downtime, often spent with parents if they choose to come up.

    Do you know when the march back from Jacks Valley might take place? DD has a grandfather that will be in the area that would like to go watch that. He knows he won't be able to talk to her, but would like to watch the march.

    I'm not 100% sure but last year it was the Wednesday before A-day so that would make it August 2nd. No matter what, you can expect it to be sometime that week if that helps narrow it down until you get official information.
