I turned 18 just a couple days ago and as I already have an appointment to USNA, I didn't know if I needed to apply or not, so I picked up the papers from the post office anyway. It says Cadets/Midshipmen of Service Academies don't need to apply, but it also says I need to apply within 30 days of my 18th birthday. I won't be at the Academy in 30 days, so do I still need to fill it out? It also says that once I leave the Academy, I will need to fill one out as long as I am still under the age of 26. So should I fill it out now anyways so I don't have to worry about it later?
