  • PARENTS AND GUARDIANS OF CYCLE 41: Please see the below letter concerning the recent outbreak of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).

    Please be assured that the cadre and staff of the MYCA are taking every precaution to protect your cadet from this mosquito-transmitted virus.  These precautions will continue until the first hard frost of the season.
    A letter has been mailed containing the following message as well as additional information on EEE.  If you have any questions please contact our company Commandant, Captain Nate Boggerty, or visit for virus specific information.
