Hello! I'm the parent of a future USNA hoepful. My son has always wanted to be in the military. Over the past year, he's decided he wants to be a Marine Corp officer and he wants to do it by going through the US Naval Academy. He has a few years yet, but I figured I can start looking at information for him. He is interested in joining a forum, but he's just starting 8th grade and I don't know if there are any here that are that young. I thought I'd check before I give my permission. I'm here hoping to talk with other parents and future cadets on how to help him stay motivated. Thanks!
