The class of 2007 has begun the second half of basic cadet training at the Air Force Academy.
On Monday morning, 1,250 cadets marched into Jack's Valley. The 5-mile journey began on the terrazzo and wound its way to the northern portion of the academy's military reservation, near the north gate.
At Jack's Valley, the cadets will build physical strength, teamwork, and leadership skills. Academy Commandant of Cadets Brig. Gen. Johnny Weida says, the march is more than just a tradition. "This is an intro for them into what it means to be an expeditionary air force. To go out and live in Tent City and be challenged by physical events."
The cadets will be in training in Jack's Valley for the next two weeks.
