Will Eastnin,cq, 18 of Georgia reads his United States Air Force Academy Preparatory Warrior Handbook, Wednesday July 12, 2006 as he waits for a haircut during his processing in to the Academy's Prep School. The largest Air Force Academy Preparatory School class in recent years, currently 252 members, will arrive here Wednesday to in-process and begin basic military training. As of Tuesday, the Class of 2007 holds 62 women, approximately twice the expected number, and a recent high number of prior-enlisted members, also 62. The class is made up of 49 percent minorities, including 48 African-Americans (19 percent), 43 Hispanics (17 percent), 22 Asian-Americans (9 percent) and 10 Native Americans (4 percent). These numbers will likely change between now and Wednesday. In-processing is a one-day event that includes medical processing, haircuts, clothing and equipment issue, and squadron and dormitory room assignments. Basic training will begin Thursday, which is a 20-day program including character education, a leadership reaction course, a field day, drill competitions and a basic training graduation July 31.
