Currently, my roommate who is in the Army is taking a week of leave to be in Colorado to watch his younger sister get commissioned and graduate from the United States Air Force Academy. He’s pictured here with his sister giving the first salute.
While the graduates are the ones who shone brightly during these two ceremonies, there was an awesome flyover show from the F-16 Thunderbirds after the newly commissioned 2nd Lieutenants were given the “dismissed.” My roommate caught it all on camera for your viewing pleasure.
They definitely did not disappoint. Congrats to all those who graduated from the USAFA.
Side note: my roommate’s sister is kind of a badass. Besides being an Air Force graduate, she also was the MVP of their gymnastics team after getting the school record for vault, placed 2nd at nationals in vault, and 5th on the floor, and a first team All-American. She is also going to pilot training from here..
