"The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor." -- Vince Lombardi #MotivationMonday
How's your summer going? Our cadets are spending two weeks of their summer at several military bases around the world as part of #USAFA's Operation Air Force program.
The Core Values -- Integrity First, Service Before Self and Excellence in All We Do -- guides the way our Airmen live and perform. This is also an important lesson we teach our basic cadets. For more photos, visit our Flickr page:
We couldn’t be prouder of our Dean of Faculty, Brig. Gen. Andrew Armacost for a job well done at The Price Is Right. Way to represent, sir. Congrats! 🎉

"Take 30 seconds to say goodbye to your families..." To the families and friends of #USAFA Class of 2022 appointees, are you ready?
In 2 days, the #USAFA Class of 2022 appointees will begin their basic cadet training. They will be pushed physically, emotionally and mentally. However, this is just the beginning of their four-year journey to becoming leaders of character. Class of 2022, are you ready?
For #MotivationMonday, we want to share General Colin Powell’s Rules to more than 1,200 #USAFA appointees who will in-process June 28 and begin their basic cadet training: 1. It ain’t as bad as you think. It will look better in the morning. 2. Get mad, then get over it. 3. Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it. 4. It can be done! 5. Be careful what you choose. You may get it. 6. Don’t let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision. 7. You can’t make someone else’s choices. You shouldn’t let someone else make yours. 8. Check small things. 9. Share credit. 10. Remain calm. Be kind. 11. Have a vision. Be demanding. 12. Don’t take counsel of your fears or naysayers. 13. Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.
