We are volunteer parents representing the Rocky Mountain Parents Associations of the five Federal Service Academies. Each parent association rotates the responsibility to chair the CASAB. The US Coast Guard Academy and the US Merchant Marine Academy parent's associations will co-host the 2020 ball.
Steeped in military customs and traditions, the CASAB promotes military education, socialization and camaraderie among Rocky Mountain Midshipmen and Cadets across all Services. The Ball includes Posting of the Colors, POW/MIA Tribute, motivational speakers, dinner, dancing and entertainment. Cadets/midshipmen classes will be recognized and there will be opportunity to catch up some traditions interrupted by COVID-19.
The purpose of the event is primarily an educational platform as a formal event, meant to be enjoyable, and supported through private and corporate generosity. Please see the SUPPORT US page for more information on how you can help.
