    My son received his appointment today!
    He is from Indiana and is a football recruit. While he is still in waiting to hear from the USAFA, I think he is most interested in the USMMA.

    His older brother is a 2009 USAFA grad and we know lots about Air Force but not so much about the USMMA. Can anyone suggest a good place to learn more about the Academy? We're familiar with the website.

    PS He is a pilot and hopes to commisison into the AF afterwards. Any info on flight spots available through the USMMA?

    Thanks!

    for good information

    For good information there are a number of books availible. for a history of the academy In peace and in war is a great book to read although it is a bit difficult to get through.
    As for flight spots I know that if he is ranked high in his class he can obtain a flight slot from not only the airforce but from any branch of the military. If he truly wants to fly and does not care what branch he flies in Kings point would be an excelent choice.

    Congrats! Mind if I ask what your son's name is? I received my appointment today to USMMA and I'm also a football recruit.
