Hello from Southwest Illinois. My oldest son has applied to USNA and USAFA and has a Congressional nomination to USNA. He started the application process on his own and surprised us (pleasantly) with the news after he was already well underway. Unfortunately, a combination of oversights and senioritis caused him to miss a few deadlines such as Senatorial applications and early review of his application. He has completed his applications and has his DODMERB exam this week. Thanks for the wonderful site and hope that we have reason to stay in touch!
