I just returned from my 40th class reunion at the Air Force Academy. The reunion was great but the state of the academy makes me wonder where the standards went. Beards, long hair on men and women and zero table manners are just a few of the issues I discuss in this highly anticipated episode. The new commandant says he’s a standards guy. Can he change the slipping academy standards or is it too late to save this institution created to train and develop military leaders? For those who were at USAFA in September, what did you see and feel or do you even care? Let me know if I’m correct in my assessment or way off base. Don’t be afraid to join the discussion.
