Boodle Boxes have long been used to to send a little bit of home to those serve. Every year our club sends every Colorado cadet box in the fall.
This year the build will be held on October 12, at the Smoky Vineyards Church, located at 20050 E Smoky Hill Road (https://www.shvchurch.org). We usually finish in 90 minutes or so - the more help we get the less time it takes!
More details to follow including signup if you'd like to donate items, volunteer to assist with the building of the boxes or both.

The incoming class was selected from a pool of nearly 12,300 applicants that include 16 international students, 285 women, 400 minorities (180 African-Americans, 145 Hispanic Americans, 99 Asian-Americans and 19 Native Americans), and 17 combat veterans who will be immersed into the basic military competencies and leader development training that will prepare them for acceptance into the Corps of Cadets.
Candidates entering the class under the sponsorship of their respective countries include: Columbia, Egypt, Fiji (2), The Gambia, Georgia (2), Honduras, Jordan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Romania, Rwanda, and Thailand.
New cadets will complete six weeks of Cadet Basic Training, learning the basic skills of the Soldier. They will participate in rigorous physical training, small-unit tactical training, and rifle marksmanship, as well as learning to respond quickly and accurately to their commanders under conditions of mental and physical stress. At the end of this initial training period, new cadets will be formally accepted into the Corps of Cadets. The Acceptance Day Parade for the Class of 2023 is scheduled for 10 AM on Saturday, 17 August.
