    Hi everyone, I'm from the Knoxville, TN area. I come from a big family, 8 brothers and sisters, and I am second oldest and first to plan to go to college. My family and my pastor are actually pretty nervous about me going away to college "out in the world" so to speak but I feel it's the right thing for me to do. Anyway I'm about to start my applications to the academies and my Congressman and Senators, so if anyone has any tips let me know!

    Thanks!

    This is more of a curiosity thing than anything else... how did he get banned already?

    I believe it was because he started a thread on the USNA forum that was offensively sexist. Think 19th-century western world or present-day Taliban, in how extreme he was. I'd rather not be more specific than that, because I don't want to get banned repeating some of his opinions.

    I don't believe it was the initial post, which, while offensive to many, is an opinion that has been voiced before. I think the ban came from his follow up.

    Wow. You take a week off of SAF and everything goes to hell in a handbasket.

    It takes a lot to rile this crowd - he ("Isaiah") actually had people both slack-jawed and lathered-up. And did you see LITS now has his very own Secret Admirer Puppy following him around the threads now?
