Acceptance Day 2023
According to the USAFA website, Acceptance Day occurs once the Basic Cadet passes Basic Cadet Training (BCT). This takes place prior to the start of the academic year and is celebrated with a parade.
During the ceremony, basic cadets are accepted into the Cadet Wing, become fourth-class cadets and are placed into their academic year Cadet Squadron.
Acceptance Day is the first time that many family members have seen their sons or daughters since In-Processing Day over 2 months ago. Today was a joyous day for everyone involved!
The official motto for the class of 2027 is: "All earned, Nothing given".
During the Parade, outstanding Basic Cadets were recognized. Their names are listed below:
Aggressors: Jacob Grayson
Barbarians: Samuel Parsons
Cobras: Brody Whitson
Demons: Zachary Quinto
Executioners: Brody Bujnoch
Flying Tigers: Nathan Good
Guts: Owen Heiser
Hellcats: David Gonzalez
