Best of the best on national stage

Cadets will march in parade.


Cadet Squadron 22 will wow the crowds with their precision marching on the national and international stage during the President's inaugural parade on Monday in Washington D.C.  I had a chance to chat with two of the cadets who will be there.

Erin Doran told me she's psyched to be in front of millions, "It's a huge honor. We've been outstanding squadron the past two years.  It's part of the perks you get when you are number one at the academy.  You get to honor and represent the academy during the parade.

Angie Phillips summed up Monday's hopes for the 84 who will perform in front of millions, "We are ready for this.  It's going to be an awesome experience."  A small group of cadets went to Washington to last weekend to check out the route and practice the maneuvers they'll use for the real thing. 

The Air Force Academy has proudly been represented at Presidential inaugural parades since 1957.  That's decades before these cadets who will be in Washington were even born.
