    Zaphod - thanks for the post.

    My son is sometimes asked, "So, what can you do with an education from the AFA." He politely responds, "Fly jets!, then become a CEO."

    I've said this before (on CC) but it seems applicable here. As a significant hierer in a fortune 100 company, I can tell you that any resume from a service academy rises right to the top. Hands down, these grads are not only great leaders, they are great followers. They tend to be loyal, trustworthy, hardworking -- and here's the kicker -- I'm not generalizing! I have yet to meet one that didn't posess these characteristics! (not saying they don't exist, just not in my experience). Most resume's never make it past the circular file -- two kinds do: 1) one that is highly recommended by a colleague you trust, or 2) one from a service academy. Ivy league: here's a secret -- employers worry that they will feel "entitled" to move up quickly. Service grads understand you have to pay your dues but the cream eventually rises to the top. So, if your worried about how your USAFA, USMA or USNA degree will be perceived -- don't be!

    I feel I need to call in a Luigi-strike!
    Okay to be fair it say "military" academy and maybe KP as a Federal Service Academy is a little different. But ten out of ten people I speak to think USMMA is the academy for the Marines. Therefore the original article works for us too, carry on. :cool:

    Al Haig - Naval Academy?

    "Naval Academy graduate Alexander Haig, President Reagan’s first Secretary of State and now CEO of his own company, suggests that "the academies are the finest institutions in the world at teaching honor, ethics, integrity, and loyalty. What you learn at a place like West Point will remain with you throughout your business career"

    Al Haig (USMA '47) is spinning in his grave!

Haig down in the pentagon gym along with my dad (USMA'48) back in the mid- 70's......I now have a Firstie son at USNA whipping up on me on the R-ball court every chance he gets....:shake:

    USMMA

    I really have no idea if this is true or not but a friend of mine, who is a recruiter for USMA, had told me that USMMA produces more CEOs than any of the other academies per captia and everybody was trying emulate their success.
