Scott took pictures of the airshow and parade. Not your average college visit, that's for sure. At least a dozen cadets parachuted onto the field, followed by acrobatic gliders rolling and turning and looping in the sky above us. Four F16 fighter jets roared over in formation just as the parade started, the 4000+ cadets marching in squadron by squadron with flags and a band. There were cannons fired, the National Anthem, honors mentioned. Even one of the trained real-bird falcon mascots flew in a demonstration.
Caleb also has great room mates, like Luke, really faith-restoring to see the quality of the young men in this generation.
Caleb is doing well. He works hard, and trains hard, and while there is a lot about the Academy that is stressful and unpleasant, he pushes on through. We are thankful for his quiet strength and dependable effort, and delight to see his humor still shining through. Love this kid.
