Welcome to the USAFA Class of 2018 Parent’s Spirit Mission Website

To the Parents of the Class of 2018:

The Spirit Mission Committee will raise money for the Cadets to honor them for reaching and accomplishing significant milestones at the U.S. Air Force Academy.  The major milestones of the four years are:

  1. Recognition ~ Freshman (C4C) ~ March 14th, 2015
  2. Exemplar ~ Sophomore (C3C) ~ Fall 2015
  3. Commitment ~ Junior (C2C) ~ August 2016
  4. 100S Night ~ Senior (C1C) ~ February 2018
  5. Graduation ~ Senior (C1C) ~ May 2018

Our first milestone for the 2018 cadets is right around the corner!  This Spirit Mission is the “2018 Recognition Milestone.”

Previous classes purchased specially minted coins for each cadet, made a congratulatory banner for “recognized cadets” for Mitchell Hall, donated to the 40 Morale, Welfare (MWR) funds, and gave a donation to the Rando Fund ( during the Exemplar Dinner.

Parents from each class coordinate this tradition to honor our cadets and Academy.  Here are the websites for the past years:

The Spirit Mission Committee for the class of 2018 asks for your support to carry on this tradition.  Requests for donations will be posted through this website and the USAFA Class of 2018 Parents Facebook page.  More details to follow as we set our fundraising goals.  We anticipate all donations to be tax deductible and will notify everyone when the 501(c)(3) status is approved.

We thank you in advance for supporting our cadets and academy.


The USAFA Class of 2018  Spirit Committee.
