    Hi, my Name is Ryan. I am a Senior at Marshall High School in Marshall Wisconsin. I applied for a nomination to all the academies and just last week received news that I was awarded a nomination to the Air Force Academy from one of my State Senators. I am waiting to hopefully get a nomination to the Naval Academy (Actually my 1st choice) from my district. I am also applying for NROTC and AFROTC scholarships at various other schools. Either way, I plan on commissioning and having a career as an officer in the military. I have been using this website for some time now and decided that it was about time I actually join. I would like to thank those of you that have and continue to give great advice and hope that maybe I can be of help to others as I proceed to hopefully obtaining an appointment.

    Welcome to the forums! I've been through Marshall many times. Good luck with the nominations and appointments. I will look forward to meeting you at the USAFA orientation for Wisconsin appointees, or at the All-Academies Ball if you choose Navy.

    Congrats Ryan! Your story sounds like my son's, except he is AF all the way, and his nomination is from Illinois. Good luck, may you both find favor and maybe even be classmates :)

    Welcome to the forums Ryan! And congratulations on your nomination. Good luck on the Naval Academy nomination, I'm sure you have good chances considering you've already received one nomination.

    Thanks for the kind words everybody. Just an update, I just received a letter today informing me that I have been awarded congressional nominations to the Air Force Academy, Naval Academy, and the Merchant Marine Academy. I sure did not expect to get noms to 3 academies, let alone 2 to the AFA!
