USMA Affirmation Ceremony at USAFA
On August 27, 2019, an Affirmation Ceremony was held in Polaris Hall at the United States Air Force Academy for the seven USMA cadets from the Class of 2021 that are on exchange there. These cadets affirmed their commitment to service to our country. All seven provided a brief biography to the audience. Four desire to branch Infantry and three hope to branch Aviation. All were very impressive future officers. USMA Class of 1971 was represented by COL (Ret) David 'Scott' Hutchison, LTC(R) Gordy Dietrich and LTC(R) Tom Martin who presented the 1971/2021 class coins to the seven appreciative cadets. The event was hosted by the West Point Society of the Pikes Peak Region and MG(R) Dan York '81 was the guest speaker.
