Red, white, and blue are the school colors and are indicative of each cadet’s patriotism, loyalty, and devotion to duty. The iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, marking the location of the school, inspires this device. The Viking is the school’s mascot and reflects the strength and spirit of the cadets.
