All, I will be leaving Service Academy Forums. While I cannot remove my screen name on here, I wanted to give you a heads up. There have been various issues that I do not agree with, some in moderation, but I believe this website is a great source for cadet/midshipmen candidates and high schoolers to get information about federal service academies. Luigi and company have some great things to do on the Coast Guard thread and elsewhere. Keep up the good work. To the candidates, work hard, and drive for your dream. That shouldn't end at the gates of which ever academy you attend. Keep it up once you get there. To cadets/midshipmen, everything you do now will in some way shape your future, make it the best you can. To Coast Guard Academy cadets; the fleet is a GREAT place, you are in an outstanding service which continues to amaze the country. We're the best at what we do, know that, and know that you will never have the fanfare of our sister services. I find comfort in that. You will work with some of the greatest people in the world, take advantage of that and watch out for them. Good luck to all! LITS, out.
