2017 COWG Encampment


Cadets Attending Encampment – Comply with these instructions and pass the information along to
 your parents – immediately! This is extremely important information.

Unit Commanders – Please ensure that cadets attending encampment and parents receive this
information.

Encampment Cadet and Senior Staff – Comply with these instructions as soon as possible.

Persons who fail to comply with these instructions will likely not be admitted to USAFA.
Encampment staff has neither the personnel nor time to assist persons with access to

 to anyone needing access.

United States Air Force Academy Access Procedures for COWG Cadet Encampment

The location of the 2017 COWG Cadet Encampment is the United States Air Force Academy
(USAFA) Preparatory School. The Air Force controls the procedures for entering USAFA. The Air Force
may change these procedures at any time. Anyone entering the USAFA property must comply with
the procedures in effect at the time. The following procedures are in effect as of the date of this
document. 
Persons with Department of Defense (DoD) ID cards or DD 20 ID cards have access to
USAFA by showing their ID card. This includes activity duty military personnel, dependents, and
retirees. These cardholders are aware if their cards allow them to serve as escorts for persons
traveling in a vehicle with them.

CAPID Cards are not DoD issued ID Cards.

With the exception of those with DoD ID cards and described above, all other persons, in the
categories listed below, who are entering USAFA to attend the encampment, drop off a cadet for
encampment, attend the graduation ceremony, or pick up a cadet must provide the requested
information. 
This applies to 
all occupants of any vehicle and not just to the driver.

·         Anyone, including CAP Members, eighteen (18) or older.

·         Anyone, including CAP Members, sixteen (16) or older who is driving a vehicle to encampment.

·         Those under sixteen (16) do not need to provide the information.

The Air Force establishes these procedures - NOT CAP. Failure to submit the required information
will result in denied access to USAFA!

At the time of entry, all persons entering USAFA must have, in their possession, the ID used when
submitting  information for the access list.

Cadets and parents are responsible for ensuring that all friends and guests attending graduation
register for access.

Required Entry Information:

·         Last Name, First Name (exactly as shown on ID used)

·         Date of Birth

·         Driver’s License Number and State of Issue, or

·         State Issued ID Card Number and State of Issue, or

·         Driver’s Permit Number and State of Issue, or

·         Passport Number and Country of Issue.

·         Additional requested contact information.

Submit this information no later than Sunday, 28 May 2017. The submission deadline is firm. No
extensions can be granted due to USAFA requirements.

At the end of this email, you will find a web link that will take you to the online web form used to collect
the required data. The link will direct you to some additional instructions. After careful review of those
instructions, use the link at the bottom of that instruction to go to the actual data entry form. This
information is stored on the CAP Colorado Wing server. Encampment will delete the information from
the server after preparation of the Entry Access List (EAL).

If in doubt, submit the form information!

Failure to complete this requirement will result in denied entry to USAFA!

>>>>> Submission Deadline is Sunday 28 May 2017 <<<<<

*     United States Air Force Academy Graduation

·         Email a senior member ASAP and let us know if you can go.

  •  Date: Wednesday, May 24th
  •  Time: 7:00a – 4:00p
  • Most schools are still in, but if you can make it it’s a great opportunity
    to meet cadets from other squadrons and see the Thunderbirds up
    close. We generally do not see any of the graduation. We will determine
    carpooling or transportation once we know who is interested and can go.
  • Currently 2 cadets are signed up.

*     Safety day

·         Weapons safety class - The sole focus of this class would be to properly educate cadets
 in the ways of safe firearm handling.  This class would fulfill our monthly safety requirements
 while also spreading a positive message about safety around firearms.  I want to be clear
THIS IS NOT A CLASS ABOUT HOW TO SHOOT. Anyone not wishing to participate or
 have their cadet participate is more than welcome to take part in another safety class.  I will
 offer other opportunities to get safety training done.  If you have any questions about this
class feel free to talk to Jeremy Kmett or Anthony Mistich.

*     CyberPatriots

·         Who is interested in participating in CyberPatriots?

·         Email a senior member or respond to the email SM Kent Borchelt sent last week.

  • CyberPatriot the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the
    Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire students toward careers in
    cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and
    mathematics (STEM) disciplines. At the center of CyberPatriot is the
