    Hello everybody,
    i just came back from my D.C. trip yesterday, so this is my first post since then. On Saturday March 29, i was looking at the city of New York (we went there too) atop the Rockefeller building at night, when i checked my voicemail on my cell phone and heard my dad telling me that my appointment to USAFA arrived in the mail that day. I was more shocked than elated, and it was truly something else to know of my dreams coming true while overlooking New York on a Saturday night. I am extremely happy and very excited for what i am about to embark on. I just want to thank my parents, siblings, friends, teachers, and most of all, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (i dont care if i'm not allowed to say it, i'm saying it anyways), for without whom i amount to nothing.
    i also want to thank everybody on these forums (ESPECIALLY hornetguy, as well as pima, Zaphod, peskemom, and i'm sure a few others on this forum who i forgot to mention). these individuals have been there with me asking me question after question, and i'm sorry for being more of a vaccum than a contributer!! I have a ton more questions and comments i want to say, but i will let those flow as they come. again, thank you everybody!!
