    What was the single greatest moment of either being at the Academy, or on active duty? Or both?

    Well I'm only halfway through so my answer will probably change with time....but after two years, I'd say either Recognition or AM-490 (jump).

    Graduation was a big one.
    There are also the harder to define ones. "It's 10AM on a beautiful day. Flying this morning was great. The mountains are beautiful...and I'm getting paid to do this?!"

    For active duty, probably the first non-pattern solo in each aircraft.
    First flight as the aircraft commander ranks up there, as well.
