Colombia week has been an annual event here at USAFA since the 1980’s and the USAFA stop is just one of many. The trip has been going on for 36 years, with this being the 37th occurrence.
Here they learn about our military, our school, and we build and foster the international relations with Colombia. This year there were 104 Colombians in attendance for the week. Of the 104 there were 80 cadets (their senior class) and 24 officers/aircrew/staff in attendance.
During the week they had the opportunity to sit in on our classes, tour the airfield, see our research labs, do the ropes course, interact with US cadets, and enjoy many other social events with the cadets here at USAFA.
It is a crazy and busy week, but it is fun and memorable for not only the Colombians but for a lot of the Cadets here as well.
C1C Kat Stutseman graciously shared the pictures she took during their Cultural Dinner last week.
