What's a SAMI?

We do not go into the Dorms for coverage, so any pictures in this blog are definitely not current! But it does give you an insight into what your Basics did today. Just a side note, the weather has turned to the typical Colorado summer, really hot all morning, thunderstorms all afternoon!

Today was SAMI day. SAMI, better known as Saturday Morning Inspection - Even if it isn't on a Saturday. The basiscs prepared their rooms for inspection. Now what we're sharing is information on an academic year SAMI, the basics are just learning so today's might have gone differently for them!

When a SAMI happens cadets roughly an hour or so of preparation before the inspection started. When the Cadets come in to inspect the room, they are saluted before entering and when they leave. Each room is looked over for roughly 2 minutes and while the room is being inspected the Cadets must stand at attention in the middle of the room, otherwise the Cadets are allowed to be at ease in their rooms. Whether that means, working on homework, talking amongest themselves or visiting with other Cadets in their rooms.

What is looked at? The Cadets leading this SAMI have rules and will measure their bed fold, their folded shirts and shorts and check for dust in certain areas of the room. As well as the floor for cleanliness.

One of the things they will be learning is the art of hospital corners and seen in this video from US Air Force Academy Official.

So parents, they are learning how to keep a clean room, no excuses on leaves or school breaks anymore!
