The last of my 3 sons received his USMA appointment today. Hard to believe all 3 will have attended WP. DS#1 was class of 2015 and is an aviator. DS#2 is in the class of 2019. They all worked hard to get there. I am very proud of them.

Wow!! That is such an accomplishment, congratulations. I cannot imagine how proud of them you must be.

That's amazing! You should pat yourself on the back for doing such a fine job of parenting that they all had the grades, the accomplishments, and the desire to serve our wonderful country.
My 2020 always had an innate military vocation and was a shoe-in to attend West Point. He was just born red white and blue. His two younger brothers have completely different interests and have no such desire to attend a SA.
Congratulations!

Wow! How impressive and proud the entire family must be! Congratulations to all. My son i ssupposed to be officially notified this coming Tuesday that he will be appointed to USMA as well. He is incredibly excited and that was his only place he wanted. I am sure your kids all had numerous other options so out of curiosity what were primary factors in their all choosing West Point? I know there are many for my DS but curious for the trifecta reasons.

Multiple siblings, twins, etc., at one SA or across a few, happens more often then you would think. It's fun to watch.

There are 4 sisters, 3 USNA grads, 1 graduating USNA this year, see link. All were near the top of their USNA class, and all earned immediate post-grad opportunities, Harvard, Fulbright, Cambridge, etc. The three commissioned ones are excelling. (Non-USNA sister went rogue to Duke and is successful in her civilian career.)

We have a USNA sponsor alumni daughter whose younger sisters are at USNA and USMA, same year. That will make for an interesting dual Comm Week freeway dash.
