Happy Halloween!

Time to announce the winner of the Beat Army Spirit Video Contest!  By now many of you have seen some or all of the squadron entries.  As was the case with the Beat Navy contest, entries were judged by our panel on the basis of creativity, originality, quality and content of the message.  Videos could not exceed 5 minutes and must have been their own original creation. No copyrighted music, video, or images could be used in the video.   Lastly the video could not infringe on any third party rights. 

Based on all the above, our Congratulations to the War Eagles of Cadet Squadron 15


Enjoy the Video "Leaving a Message"  below.   Beat Army!


Pumpkin Carving Contest

Check out the pumpkins from the Pumpkin Carving Contest. Cadets were able to enter their pumpkins into different categories such as "scary", "funny" and "artistic"! Check out more pictures on the last page of the extracurricular gallery.

Tinker Toys

Hello All,

I dropped in on Behavior Science 310 yesterday to see their class on group dynamics.  The project involved working in a group to build a specific model out of tinker toys.

The end result needed to look like this.

The class was divided into two groups.  Below were the only rules given.

Here are some photos and videos of the process in action.  First, some of the members looked at the model.

Next the people who actually looked at the model tried to describe it to the "listeners"

The "listeners" then met with the builders, but they could only provide yes or no answers.


There were no other rules. In the end, each group was able to successfully replicate the model.

What was interesting was the "rules" they created for themselves.  The last video explains.  The photos are all in the Academic Gallery starting on page 5.  Enjoy


Military Training Day 2

Happy Saturday Everyone!
Today, on this unusually warm October morning, for military training the cadets went through several different stations! Some of the stations included Self Aid Buddy Care, Dodgeball and learning how to shoot pistols! Then after the training they got to enjoy a BBQ! These pictures can be located on page 144 of the Military Training Folder!
Have a beautiful rest of your day!

Military Training Day 1

Hi families!
There hasn't been as much activity since basic, so it's nice to be back. Speaking of basic, today was another event apart of military training. The cadets were able to participate in activities that they haven't done since basic or their last military training. Some of the activities included pugil stick fights, dodge ball, tug o' war and some fun sports.

This was just the beginning of training. Check back in tomorrow for a ton more coverage!

We are back!

We are back! We now have this awesome upgraded website. We did our best to streamline everything in order to make it as simple as possible for you to access your content. Check out the new public portal which does not require a WebGuy login to see the blogs and now also has access to our free public photo gallery. 
In the Members Area, you will have all the great WebGuy content you are used to, plus the reorganized class specific pages with links to BCT by squadron and every major class specific event as they occur. 
Thanks for your patience while the site was down.  We hope you enjoy the new look and organization.

Parent Member Plus Gift Shop Offer

Parent Member Plus Members,
Here is a special offer for you today in our AOG Gift Shop. With each order over $20, we'll throw in a free Spirit Tumbler with Joe Falcon on it!

How does the offer work?  When you go the store, just shop as you normally would, placing over $20 of purchases in your shopping cart.  Once you go to checkout, after putting in your member number (that gives you your 15% member discount), you'll see where you can put in a Discount Code.  Put in code PMP2014.  That will subtract .01 from your order, which will tell our shippers to add a free Spirit Tumbler when they ship your order. 
Thanks for the support you give to your cadets each and every day!
