The Longest Recognition in USAFA history:

The Class of 2023 started Recognition March 13th which ended 8 hours later as the disappointed Cadets learned they would be going home in the next few days due to the pandemic outbreak of Covid 19.

Cadets returned to USAFA in waves starting mid June through July. Spirits were high on the 15th of August when 2023 Cadets were able to complete recognition with their Run to the Rock followed by the Prop and Wings pinning ceremony.
