Greetings, FUMA Cadets, Staff, Faculty and Parents! 

We are two weeks away until the Class of 2021 graduates. We are busy trying to celebrate these amazing cadets in every opportunity, ranging from senior days on the athletic fields, parades, special weekend events like international festivals and so much more! 


I am so excited for this weekend. We are hosting our annual International Festival on Saturday, prior to celebrating our amazing mothers ON CAMPUS for the 2021 Mother’s Day Parade. Let me say that again, ON CAMPUS! This will be the first official event where we will be able to host families on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will give these resilient cadets somewhat of a “back to normal” feel as they get to spend time with their mothers on such a special day. 


I want to take the time and thank every strong, beautiful mother who trusted us with their amazing son this year in such a difficult time. I am so grateful for each and every one of you. Please enjoy your time on Sunday with your FUMA cadet!

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”


Happy Mother’s Day!


Best regards,
Colonel David L. Coggins, USMC (Ret.)
