No sooner had the thrill and pride of Acceptance Day receded into the flurry of the academic year than Recognition began looming quietly on the horizon. The cadets’ eager anticipation for this milestone overshadowed any apprehension they may have felt about it. Now—they have conquered it! That’s one more step toward their objective: Conquer Mind, Conquer All.

USAFA Class of 2019 SPIRIT MISSION
Our goal as parents of the U.S. Air Force Academy Class of 2019 is to organize spirit missions to honor and recognize our Cadets as they achieve milestones throughout their four years at the Academy. RECOGNITION is one of six Milestones your cadet will go through during his or her Cadet career. Through your donations, the Spirit Mission is able to fund and support commemorative keepsakes to give each cadet and to the needs of the Cadet Class. Click to find out more about our budgets, about each Milestone, and how you can donate to future Milestone events.
Funds raised for Recognition were spent on two congratulatory banners, a Recognition Keepsake Card, and a Coin for Recognition

RECOGNITION KEEPSAKE CARD FOR SALE
Many people have asked if they could buy a coin as a keepsake for themselves. While we would all love to have one, we feel that it is the Cadets who earned the coin. So, we have made the Recognition Keepsake Card available for a $5.00 donation. We only have 300 cards available. Please do not delay in ordering your card. Once they are gone, they are gone.
