Although the new Basics during BCT have been getting a lot of attention, WebGuy cannot forget the hard work of the Cadre! The Cadre are second or first-class cadets who are in leadership positions. USAFA has many leadership opportunities for upperclassmen.
According to the USAFA website, second-class cadets serve as technical experts in drills and ceremonies, personal appearance, and room inspections and develop team leadership competencies to train third and fourth-class cadets.
During their final year, cadets take the reins of command as Cadet Wing leadership, holding positions of responsibility within Basic Cadet Training; Expeditionary, Survival, and Evasion Training; and other underclass summer training programs. Serving as cadet officers throughout the academic year, they develop organizational leadership competencies to lead and supervise the professional development of the lower three cadet classes.
