So I will soon be going into the Navy as an enlisted sailor. However, I have gained great interest in going to the Naval Academy. In a previous post of mine I have mentioned that high school was a complete bust for me. But I really don't want to let this stop me. Usually people who go to the Naval Academy are elites in their classes and I could have been that, but I've dealt with many family and personal struggles putting that out the picture. But it's time for me to guide my own path in life. Where would I start putting myself in the right direction while on my way to becoming an enlisted sailor? And if you ask why I would want to go from enlisted to midshipman then to answer that I feel going right into the Navy as a start would ultimately be better for me then going right to college.
