Hey I've been getting ready to start getting my nomination from my representative, senators, the v.p. and the president. Pretty much all of them ask that I send in a personal letter stating why I want to go to one of the service academies. Does anyone have any advice about the best way to go about writing these letters so that they sound professional but convey the kind of person who I am, while trying not to sound cliche? (referring to the "standard" answer of "I want to serve my country." even though that is something I am very passionate about and is one of my reasons for wanting to attend.) Any help would be great.
