In-Processing 2021
In-Processing 2025 was a day of many emotions and celebrations as the Class of 2025 began their USAFA journey. We were able to welcome so many family and friends at the FamFest picnic hosted by the Colorado Parents' Club and the AOG at Doolittle Hall. As the Basics began BCT, families had a chance to drop off their First Letters, order Goodie Bags, grab breakfast snacks or lunch, stop by the photo booth, visit with live Falcon mascots, meet other 2025 families, and visit the AOG gift shop. Click here to see more I-Day pictures from our Colorado Parents’ Club photographers.
Many families stopped by our photo booth to have their picture taken on this momentous day. See more photo booth pictures here.
Meet the Board
Each month we are highlighting an Executive Board or Committee Chair member/s so you can get to know our behind the scenes team that is committed to lending their time and talents to supporting the Colorado Parents’ Club and our Colorado Cadets.

This month we are introducing our New Appointee Event Coordinators,
Gary and Colleen Foster
Gary & Colleen Foster are the proud parents of two daughters. Cailin graduated 26 May 2021 and is now a Developmental Mechanical Engineer in the US Air Force. C2C Ashlyn is an IC athlete on the USAFA Women’s Dive Team. She is pursuing a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and will legacy to CS-13 beginning in the fall semester.

They have participated in various areas such as helping fill Goodie Bags for the cadets, helping at Football tailgates, assisting with Colorado Night events, etc., and for the past two years, serving as the New Appointee Event (NAE) Coordinators. The NAE is a great introduction for parents and new appointees to USAFA CPC/USAFA and all they have to offer.
