Hello, I've been a weekly reader of this great forum for over a year now and finally opted to join as a poster. I didn't before as I have some experience with the academies and really just needed some updates for two interested children. Typically, I read the latest, searched my question and moved on. However, as my oldest is ending a year a NAPS and my youngest is waiting to hear from NASS, I thought these experiences combined with my own NAPS and USNA experience, as well as a semester as an exchange student to another SA, I could be a provider vice just a taker. I'm a retired Navy pilot with over 30 years of active duty, two commands and living overseas experience. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. Thanks and all the best..One of the "Old Guys"!
