USMA Company C2 “Flying Circus” takes flight with precious cargo

Over the past few years, extensive barracks renovations and construction across the cadet area couldn’t go unnoticed at the U.S. Military Academy.

As a result of recent renovations, cadet companies have been shuffled around geographically like a deck of cards. Each cadet company brings with them foosball tables, televisions, furniture, photos, memorials of the fallen and even murals.

“The murals embody the soul and spirit of the company,” says Capt. Carter Bell, Company C2 Training Advising Counseling (TAC) Officer. “They differentiate us from the rest of the Corps and gives us our own unique climate and culture.”

The Flying Circus, C2, has a special patch that bares the Snoopy trademark, which retired Lt. Col. Gus Stafford obtained formal approval to use from Snoopy’s creator, Charles Schulz, when he designed the company patch as a cadet.
