Words of Wisdom From the Sponsors

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Kathryn Peek Christmas leave last year was my first time home after reporting to the Academy on that anxiety ridden day in June. I can honestly say that returning to the Academy after my first stint back to Colorado was even harder than showing up for R-Day. To comfort me, my sponsor dad said “Don’t worry, the return gets easier with each year,” followed by “next year you won’t groan this much when we drive through the front gates.” I flashed a false smile and nodded. However, that little voice inside was screaming “NONSENSE!” Despite my pessimism, his words of reassurance are true. Returning back to the Academy from this last spring leave was rather painless and seasoned with excitement as the spring semester has a tendency to fly by. The weather improves, and the corps’ moral follows suit. More importantly, the conclusion of spring semester means the best part of the cadet experience…summer training.
