Dear FUMA Cadets,

We are prepared for your return to campus. There is information for you and your parents to read/review on our website regarding specifics to make your return safe/efficient.  To those FUMA Cadets who went home for Christmas break and worked out, helped around the house, were kind to others and emulated the core values they learned at FUMA in all ways…thank you and well done! Bravo Zulu!

Things like Respect, Integrity, Faith, Character and Discipline—embraced holistically in body, mind, and spirit (our FUMA way) are appropriate at the Academy, at home and in your life.  I’m proud of you.  “Thank you” is always appreciated.  We recommend you say it early and often to your parents and those who help you.   They’ll appreciate it.

Come back safely and ready to finish the year strong. Let’s complete the good work God has started in you. 

“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in your will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians (1:6).  

I’m praying today for each of you and looking forward to greeting you when you return. Full speed ahead!

Go FUMA!  

Colonel David L. Coggins, USMC (Ret.)
