The 2010 graduating class at the Air Force Academy started out four years ago 1,334 strong. Wednesday, 1,001 walked across the stage to receive a diploma.
Of those 18.7 percent are female, 24 percent are minorities. There are two sets of twins. Sixty are 2nd generation AFA grads.
Just over 500 will head to pilot training.
Depending on their specialty, they now owe the government 5 to 10 years of service in exchange for their education.
All graduate with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant.
