Sunday Supplement 1
Happy Holiday Families!
As our nation celebrates its 246th birthday weekend, the WebGuy Team will be there to capture the Basics on the 4th of July, although those photos will not be posted until July 5th.
We would like to introduce the first BCT Sunday Supplement. It will be a chance to look back on the week each Sunday. Hopefully, you have had a change to see your Basic. From your Facebook posts and email, it sounds like you have. Well, almost everyone has. We will keep trying!

So, let's see. What happened the past few days? Think of starting any new job. They did all those things. Finance, personnel, security clearances, getting ID badges. Now think of starting college. They took academic placement tests. Now, think of joining the military. They got new uniforms, they were issued rifles, they started learning to march, salute, customs, and courtesies. They all made their beds.They exercised (a lot).
Most memorably, they took the Cadet Oath of Office together as the USAFA Class of 2026.
Trust us, these past few days have been a drink of water with a firehose. Well, not literally, but you get the idea. Later at Jacks Valley it will be more literal. But we digress.
We know that BCT is serious. The training is serious. In the early days, it's not a lot of fun for the Basics. Just like many of you families they are dealing with this transition. Some are tired, scared, and homesick. Some are doing just fine. It's different for everyone. To that we say, "Hang in There!" It gets better. It really does. Remember our photos are just "A snapshot in time".
To that end, we would like to bring you a few more snapshots in time of BCT, Week One.
Oh, before we wrap this blog up. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to those of you who have already been thoughtful enough to send goodies. We cannot tell you how much the entire WebGuy Team appreciates them. WebGuy loves all kinds of snacks. They keep us fueled!
