    Thanks!

    Son got appointment offer this morning. We would like to go on either April 26 OR 29th, but no April dates....(I'm presuming you all had your act together and signed up through the website when the dates open/available/showing). I've reached out to the regional counselor to see if room. Is there some other contact info I should know about?

    Prayers for all of you there for today's tour, that you find peace in your heart with the choice that you have already made or are about to make.

    For those that already attended on April 19th - how'd it go for you? Thoughts?

    Glad that those that are going are going - just wanted to leave a quick note for those who can't - it's okay. Last minute appointments, etc... means that you are not alone, lots of parents aren't able to do the appointment tour with their cadet in advance. I was one of those parents. Although my DD had been on campus, the rest of us had not until the evening before I-Day. From the day that you drop your cadet candidate off they will be well taken care of and quite frankly nothing prepares them for BCT. It's okay to relax, enjoy high school graduation preparation and get ready for the ride.

    Went with DD for the tour. Started off in a small narrow classroom for a Power Point presentation.. DD told me to sit in the back while she sat up in front with the cool kids:( An officer entered and said, "Who wants to jump out of airplanes!!" Her hand shot up so fast...& I thought I knew her...Good Luck to all!
