Reception of PMA Class 2021 (Original Copy)
Reception of PMA Class 2021 April 1,2017 Traditionally, April 1st has been set aside for the reception of the new cadets. This day marks the first day of a military career and the last day of their civilian lives. On this day, the new cadets form at the Borromeo Field and take their oath of office as cadets of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. The upperclass cadets comprising the Plebe Detail then take charge and give the new cadets a series of exercises to perform. These exercises, to include push-up, sit-up, squat thrust, jumping jacks, dash, are but a foretaste of what to expect for the next eight weeks of "Beast Barracks."
