USAFA parents Hail and Farewell

Five Mississippi high school graduates who were appointed to the United States Air Force Academy pause for a photo with their families at a dinner held June 9 at the Columbus Club on Columbus Air Force Base, Mississippi. The dinner celebrated their selection to the U.S. Air Force Academy, where the students will study mathematics, English, Science, and Military History, while also participating in strenuous military training and athletic programs. After four years, the students will graduate and commission as second lieutenants in the United States Air Force. The state of Mississippi had eight high school graduates chosen to attend the Air Force Academy this year. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Staff Sgt. Stephanie Englar)
