Dear Andrew and Anthony, Congratulations! On behalf of the Superintendent, Lt General Michelle D. Johnson (USAFA '81), it is my pleasure to announce your appointments to the United States Air Force Academy as a member of the Class of 2018.


You will be joining a select group of our nation's finest young people as you take this challenging and rewarding step toward becoming a professional Air Force officer.


You both have earned a rare opportunity to participate in one of this country's finest officer training programs. This appointment is awarded to only about 1,200 of our 9,700 applicants. It is equivalent to a scholarship valued at $444,498.00.


Your previous accomplishments indicate you have the potential to meet the demands and challenges of the Academy and you should be extremely proud of your appointment as only the best of the best are so rewarded. Your appointment will be conditional on continued excellence academically, socially, and physically. I compliment you on a tremendous record of personal achievement and look forward to welcoming you to the Cadet Wing on June 26, 2014.
