    Hi everyone,

    I have been lurking for a week or so and decided to take the plunge and join. I am very impressed with the thought and effort people put into their answers. this forum is extremely helpful. Thank you all.

    I have a rising senior who recently informed us that he wants to apply to CGSA for class of 2020. This was quite a surprise to us, as he hadn't expressed much interest in the military before this. (He later told me had to said much because he knew i wouldnt be crazy about the idea.). His dad is a former Marine, but never pushed our son towards the military. I admit that the military is not my choice, but I realize it's not my choice and it's not my life. I would never want to be instrumental in preventing him from realizing a dream just because of my fears. He is a great kid, strong character, loves to help and serve others and I think the CGSA would be lucky to have him. I'm biased, I know, but I do believe it.

    So, I have plenty of questions, but I guess I will head over to the CGSA forum to post. Thanks again and I hope to get to know folks better as time goes on and the questions multiply.

    Welcome! We are not a military family but I have an NROTC son and a DD who wants USCGA class of 2022. I understand the fear but it is pretty amazing to see these great kids want something bigger than themselves. Good luck to your son and I hope you find the answers you seek!
