Campus Overview, Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado USA
USA
The campus of the the United States Air Force Academy is located on 18,500 acres, just north of Colorado Springs, Colorado in a lovely mountain setting at an altitude of 7,258 feet above sea level. The Cadet Chapel is 150 high and has separate chapels for different religious groups. The Academy is a four-year program designed to provide cadets to serve as Air Force career officers. Cadets graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree and are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the Air Force. Back in 1949, the Secretary of the Air Force W. Stuart Symington appointed a commission to assist in selecting a site for the Academy and on April 1, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized creation of the United States Air Force Academy. After considering 580 sites in 45 states, the commission narrowed the choice to three locations. The summer of 1954, Secretary of the Air Force Harold Talbott selected the site.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
