We realize that some parents/legal guardians have to travel long distances to pick up and return their Cadet(s) on weekend and holiday passes. With this in mind, if you know of another parent/legal guardian who could share the driving, to include the Mentors, please furnish us your authorization in writing for that adult to sign your Cadet out and in. You must comply with the sign out/sign in dates and times. If you have a conflict, contact the Commandant or Deputy Director immediately. Your support of our program is critical, let us make it work together.
