My DS has worked so hard for the last two years to achieve this dream and has received appt to USNA. Did it entirely with no prodding from parents. Went to for candidate weekend visit, loved it, but realizes how hard physically, mentally, scholastically it will be. Not to mention we are on the other end of country, so coming home, etc...limited. Has a young brother and sister at home that DS will miss, etc...DS is getting nervous about....everything.....I would welcome some advice about how to talk to DS, etc... anything! Thank you.
