Cadet Cheering Section and Falcon Mascot United States Air Force Academy
The front of the postcard shows an Air Force Cadet wearing a white shirt with a white falcon on his arm. In the background, a stadium of cadets looks to the left during a sporting event.
The back of the postcard has a small paragraph giving more context to the image: "The Falcon, selected as the official mascot because of its speed, power, courage, alertness, and graceful flight, is shown on the arm of a Cadet Falconer, ready to rise screaming into wild, free flight at sports events and other public Academy activities, the precise, yet enthusiastic cheers of the massed Cadets spur their athletic teams to victory."
Original owner of the cards mailed them to History Colorado without a return address or other documentation.
