congrats bud on the loa, i don't have to tell you what kind of an honor that is
i also have to say that having an loa is pretty cool all until you get to the academy where nobody wants to know- don't get me wrong i'm not hating on your success or anything, you deserve that loa, but remember that most kids coming into 13' aren't going to have gotten one and you don't want to make a name of yourself with your exception. on my west point recruiting trip the guys told lots of stories of kids who made names for themselves by taking things a little too far. it's all about keeping things in perspective. i know what it's like to receive an loa, its an amazing feeling and the feeling isn't going to go away anytime soon. but where as you have a spot at the academy right now, there are going to be plenty of kids who are going to go through months of sweat blood and tears to hear much later, and it may never even happen. but once they do get in, loa or not, it doesn't matter anymore, your airforce 2013. be proud of that
also i think its worth noting earlier posts to add that ppl without loas are really frustrated when they check their mailbox everyday in dissapointment. but if they really are deserving candidates then they're going to be the same ones throwing their hats in the air with you on graduation day, and loas will certainly not matter anymore
but like i said before, good luck with everything, you deserve it
