Academy seeks mentors, sponsors

Eligible sponsors are active duty, reservists or retired O-3+, E-6+ and GS-05+. The cadets will meet their sponsors at the Doolie Day Out event at the Academy July 23. The deadline to sign up for DDO is July 7.  We are also taking requests to sponsor cadets thru graduation no later than Aug. 14. For more information, visit www.usafa.edu/cadetFocus/cadetSponsor or call 719-333-2727.

Transportation

Van pool seeks passengers
A Schriever van pool is looking for additional riders.  The van leaves from the Albertson's parking lot on Union and Research at 5:45 a.m. and arrives at Schriever Air Force Base around 6:15 a.m.  The van leaves Schriever at 3:30 p.m. and returns to Albertson's around 4:15 p.m. This is a great way to save wear and tear on your car, save money and relax on the way to/from work.  For government civilian or military, there is no cost. Some companies also offer reimbursement for van pools so contractor cost will depend on your company policy. If interested, contact Herb Hipple at 567-0285.
