I got an email from a former student today. He's currently a junior at the Air Force Academy, and has been notified by the Department of Foreign Languages that he's one of 4 cadets who have been chosen to attend the "Officer School of the Air Force" in Germany during spring break. Rough duty!
I was an exchange cadet at the US Air Force Academy for the 1st semester of my junior year, and to the Royal Military Academy for two weeks during the summer before my senior year. Such programs provide valuable experiences to all concerned.
Again: congratulations, cadet!
