I've stumbled across a rather interesting article in my research of the service academies, and figured I'd drop it here to see what you all think about it. http://www.johntreed.com/gotousma.html It's rather long, but it puts a rather different spin on the typical "Should you go to West Point?" question. I would love to hear from other graduates or whomever if what Mr. Reed says still applies today, or if you agree with his statements. Just some food for thought!
