Good Afternoon!!!!!! I have been a long time lurker and reader for about 2 years now on this forum. It has been my career goal to become a military officer for a very long time. I applied to both the West Point and USNA classes of 2016, but unfortunatley did not receive an appointment to either. I am now proud to be an incoming Knob to the Citadel's class of 2016, Army ROTC. I look foward to all of the challenges and adventures that await me!!!! I plan on keeping in touch with this Forum throughout my SMC experience for both information and guidance. I will also be honored to assist any prospective 2017 or later candidates for USMA, USNA, and The Citadel. I have experience with the full application process with all 3 schools, to include DoDMERB, Congressional Nomination, and the CFA (I was triple-Q'd with a Nomination for both Federal Academies). Thank you all and I look foward to hearing from you!!!!!
