BCT 1 Awards

Hello All!   Hope you are all having a great weekend.  By now most of you know that all the photos from yesterday are up in the  Class of 2021 Field Day Gallery.  Hopefully you caught a glimpse of your basic.  Included in this gallery is a bit of the Noon Meal Formation and the BCT-1 Cadre Award winners. Congrats to all pictured below.  C2C Juan Duque (Outstanding Element Leader), C1C Jared Brown (Outstanding Flight Commander), C1C John Flor, (Outstanding Squadron Staff Member), C1C Dominic Licerio (Outstanding Squadron Commander),  C2C Ryan Collinsworth, (Outstanding Group Staff Member)




Speaking of Cadre... You will soon notice a new gallery under the Class of 2021.  BCT Cadre.  That is where we will post the Cadre photos when they are ready.  We will update that gallery at the end of BCT-1 & then again at the end of BCT-2, so you families of upper class cadets can look there instead of seaching through all the BCT  photos.  Starting Monday, you will also see another new gallery under the Class of 2021.  BCT-2.  Those photos will be sorted by squadron just like BCT-1's were.  There will be no more photos posted in the BCT-1 Gallery.  Every year we get calls and email asking why there are no new photos.  The reason is always that they are looking in the BCT-1 Gallery.   We organize our galleries the same way BCT itself is organized.

As I write this, the Basics are all at the Rodeo as are our photographers.  When they get back, they will have all new cadre who will remain with them through the end of BCT.  Rodeo photos will all have their own gallery just like Field Day, so look for that new icon under Class of 2021 when those photos start to upload. 

Tomorrow is Summary Sunday.  There will be lots of video for you to see, but all our photographers will have a well deserved day off. 

Next week's BCT coverage highlights will include more intramurals, flight drill evaluations on the terrazzo, another PFT and the AFT (Aerobic Fitness Test) and haircuts in preparation for Doolie Day Out.  Yes!  It's almost here.  Next week also marks the beginning of our USAFA Preparatory School BMT (Basic Military Training) coverage.  I-Day for the Prep School Class of 2018 is July 19th.  The Prep School has their own portal under the Classes tab above, so you new Prep families can keep track of your Basic Cadet Candidate's progress through BMT and the rest of the Prep year in the same way that the USAFA families do with your own blog and photos. 

OK.  That's it for this blog.  Enjoy the rodeo photos when they go up and all the videos tomorrow.  Try to get outside and get some fresh air away from your computers.  ;-)
