We are in our second month of school and fully-operational within safety protocols and no COVID-19 cases.

  • Our classes are going well, sports are in full swing and our clubs providing some exciting extracurricular activities.  
  • The Corps of Cadets looks good.
  • When they need help—we help them through counseling, motivation, and sometimes...extra duties.
  • We have stimulating and competitive activities for them to do on weekends, as well as, quiet time infused in their busy schedule for down time.
  • Our daily chapel services are inspiring.

I interact daily with the Cadets and what I see is respect, integrity, faith, character, and discipline. We develop them in body, mind and spirit.

We are FUMA.

We are working toward raising the bar of excellence in all we do.

  • We have a great advising, counseling and mentoring program.
  • We currently have a former FUMA Cadet at each service academy and serving in each branch of the military including the Space Force.
  • Our food service continues to be excellent.
  • We are swimming, playing soccer, having basketball, cross country, judo, rifle, lifting weights, total body fitness, nutrition and wellness activities.
  • We will resume our etiquette classes, interviewing techniques and add “how to dress for success” soon.

We want our Cadets well-prepared for the next level in a holistic manner with academics, athletics, and life skills including muscles and manners.

We are FUMA.

We’ll have our first football game this weekend and stream it live via our YouTube channel. Check it out. The PG team will be coming out of Estes Field House and through the Corps of Cadets “tunnel!’ Due to COVID-19 safety protocols we can’t have fans from off-campus, but we are playing and look forward to a good game.

We appreciate our Cadets, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, Board and friends. Our Academy only gets a portion of what we need through tuition and fees—the rest comes from our supporters. We need you to continue to help us provide what the Academy and our Cadets need.

Best wishes. God bless you all.

We are FUMA.



Best regards,
Colonel David L. Coggins, USMC (Ret.)
Fork Union Military Academy
