Acceptance Day

The end of Basic Cadet Training (BCT) is marked by the Acceptance Parade. During this event, cadets receive their fourth-class shoulder boards to recognize completing BCT and to signify their acceptance into the Cadet Wing. Due to the on-going threat of COVID-19, this parade will be closed to the public this year. Photos and videos from the event will be released on official social media channels the same day.
