Colorado Cadets in Action
This is the place to see the great things our Colorado Cadets are doing!
We'd love to share the adventures and successes of our Colorado cadets with our members. Please send photos and details of your cadets living their best lives at USAFA to our co-presidents.

If your cadet is involved in a USAFA Club or Extracurricular Activity (Choir/Theater, WOG/WOB, Sandhurst, Drum & Bugle Corps, Color Guard, Drill Team, etc.), please send us pictures of them doing their thing for future newsletters!
Congratulations USAFA Falcons, 2019 Cheez-It Bowl Champs! What a way for our very own Colorado Cadet, C/1C Connor Vikupitz to wrap up his football career! Well done, Connor!

USAFA was well represented at the 2019 Colorado All Service Academy Ball! It was a great evening to celebrate all of the young men and women of Colorado attending one of our nation's service academies. Our future looks bright! Enjoy the photos below, captured on cell phones by our CPC families!
