September Prep Birthdays
As any Preppie will tell you, one of the best parts about their year at the USAFA Preparatory School is the dining facility. With a small student population to serve, the DFAC has the luxury of giving personal attention. Facility manager, Mr. Luciano Moya makes sure that every student gets a birthday dinner. Even cadet candidates whose birthdays do not fall during the prep academic year between August 1 and April 30, still get their dinner. May-July birthdays get their dinner in August. No one is missed. Each student is served by the staff individually by the DFAC staff. Dinner includes a green salad, choice of steak or chicken cordon bleu, dinner rolls, and the non-alcoholic beverage of their choice. Dessert is cake and ice cream. Following military tradition, the cake is cut with a cadet sabre by the oldest and youngest C/Cs present. The ice cream is always provided by Chef Jeff who pays for it out of his own pocket each month. Jeff has been with the DFAC for 25 years and originally came from the Broadmoor Hotel, so your preps are in the best of hands. We will cover all the dinners throughout the year. Next time you have a chance, be sure to thank the DFAC staff. They do a great job every day. Enjoy the individual photos in the Prep Life gallery.
