As we approach Nov. 5th, a lot of positive events have taken place...We have had a great cadet response to the Blue Alliance Dinner, and as a result we still need members to "sponsor a cadet", so I would encourage everyone to help out if you can.
The Dinner should be interesting - several high ranking members of the Academy Staff will be in attendance. We will be hearing about how the implementation of DADT has been going so far, and will have an opportunity to forge a new relationship with the Academy leadership. It will also be a chance to meet new members, straight allies, and to talk about our beat down of Army. The dinner is after the game, and don't forget we will have a tailgate before hand. Stay tuned for details.
Blue Alliance recently received official "affinity" status from the AOG which basically means we have the same rights and privileges of any other alumni organized group. Good news - kudos to the AOG - they have worked with us very closely for over two years and you would likely be surprised at how supportive they have been to Blue Alliance.
I find it interesting to note the very strong reception and interest in Blue Alliance from the Cadet Wing. How times have changed.....The next few years will be a time of growth and development of our group, and an interesting time for USAFA in general, much as it was in 1976!
