United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs Reviews
I was fortunate. When my parents retired, and moved to Colorado. Our home was just a few miles from this prestigious military academy. Several young men who my parents knew from childhood attended and matriculated from the academy. Some spent holiday with my parents, others would walk down on weekends and be given rides back Sunday night. The academy hosted concerts and big name rock groups. I was able to return many times to explore and visit the churches and see events at the Olympic size pool. I attended several military weddings at the Catholic church. Always drawn to the huge, magnificent pipe organ. Its sound quality was unforgettable. I experienced my first receiving line, and debutant ball at the academy. I was around when the academy made its transition from all male to enrollment of female cadets. I made sure my Arvada Colorado summer camp students age 5-12 went to local falconry events. It was fantastic to see their faces light up when they could ask and answer questions about birds. One camp group had a tour at the academy. Each of the graduation ceremonies I attended from 1971-1978 and 1980-1982 was so very unique. After leaving Colorado, I also missed the trend in Colorado during the holidays to feature school choirs from junior high through university level. One of the choirs from the air force academy signing,, "Little Drummer Boy" and "Do You Hear What I Hear" will be a forever memory. Thank you to all the graduates who dedicate time and risk life for the USA.
Incredible facility for tomorrows Air Force elite. What a privilege for those who attend with its world class facilities. This is the standard that make the US Armed Forces are the best in the world.
Wonderful history of the facility, the life of cadets at the Academy, the sporting grounds and Academy buildings. The Cadet Chapel is a must see, from the spires and stained glass windows to the 4,334 pipe organ on the 2nd floor.
There is nothing to do here. You walk through a church. Watch a video on training. Then you either stand in the sun and die or you tour the grounds in your car.
Spent 3 years, 11 months, and 5 days here. Not too bad. The Salisbury steak was just OK though. 4 stars.
