This is my second post and I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Last week, my son just received notification that he was appointed to the Class of 2020 - USAFA. This is very exciting news, but my son has his heart on being a Naval officer. (he applied to Naval Academy and was rejected) This being said, his long term goal is to be an intelligence officer in some capacity after graduating, serve his five year, re-up for one more term, and then try and get into the CIA, FBI, NSA etc. In terms of his major, he would pursue political science if he attends Air Force. (we visited just yesterday) His back-up plan is to attend SDSU through the NROTC program. My question is this. In terms of career (long term includes the 5 years and 20+ years after degree), what service academy (between Navy and Air Force - I realize that Army has the best intel program) provides the best path to achieve his goal of being in Intel? My son does not want to be "stuck" behind a terminal for 12 hours a day and would rather do work that is hands on, in the field, and diverse. He is trying to make the right decision and feels that being a Service Warfare Officer (if he does not accept the appointment) might be another viable option to reach his end goal. Thanks in advance for your help and feedback!!
