They shouldn't have either.....ONLY PAIN!!!
When I went into the Marine Corps you were encouraged by the DI's to either be a Catholic/Protestant or a Jew. Otherwise they found things for you to do during worship time. Now I know this was many years ago, and at a different level, but I have been under the impression that religon is important in the process.
My son who will be a plebe at USMA next year is very active in our church youth group and I am sure the activities - mission trips, leadership roles, etc. helped his application to West Point. I hope he will continue to participate in some type of religious activity, but that is up to him.
Yeah that is me. I am very active and i love doing it, especally the mission trips. My mom's hope is that I dont forget about my faith while I am away at school.( no matter where it is)
