MEEKER | Nathan Bradfield has entered basic cadet training at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs in preparation to enter the first academic year at the academy. The six-week, two-phased orientation program must be successfully completed by the cadets prior to entering their freshman year. The training prepares men and women to meet the rigorous mental and physical challenges experienced by new cadets.
Phase one involves personal in-processing, orientation and training in the fundamentals of being a cadet. Cadet trainees are prepared to adjust from civilian to military life and disciplines, and learn proper wear of the uniform, saluting policies and procedures, drill and ceremony, marching and living quarters standards.
Nate is the son of Marnell and David Bradfield of Meeker. He was a 2010 graduate of Meeker High School.
