Merry Christmas everyone!! I have been "lurking" (I just read that term on someone else's post, and had no idea it applied to me!) for a while and wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of you!! I have learned so much about this process by reading your posts. I am a mom, my son is a candidate for the Air Force Academy and the Naval Academy. He has nominations for both and is now just waiting out the rest! I hope you have a wonderful holiday! A big thanks to all of you amazing young men and ladies home for the holidays--thank you for using your talents to serve our country. Best of luck to all of the incredible candidates, too.
