    I sure wish our mid could have gotten this OpInfo assignment. Our younger son is voicing interest in attending USNA. We want to make sure that he really wants to attend for himself and not just because older brother is doing it. Is this something we should take him to?

    That's why they have the program. You've been through the process once so you know what to expect and what it takes. There are a surprising number of kids with siblings at the Academy. If it's not a big deal to attend, let the younger son start to make up his own mind.
