As a junior in high school, I'm preparing to begin interviews with MOCs, and later on (hopefully) ALOs. I wanted to know besides grades, sports, and activities, what are some appropriate things I can talk about in my resume/interview? What I had in mind especially is the fact that my dad is a purple heart recipient, and has earned numerous accolades as an LAPD detective. Would I be able to mention that? What are the limits for talking about character, or things I may have learned from him?

Follow the the interviewer's lead. If you are asked about leaders you respect (which is often a part of my interviews), or character building, using your father as an example is effective. However, if you are trying to impress the interviewer with your father's achievements, it could be counterproductive -- the interviewer is interested in you and what makes you tick. Your father is of course relevant, and but don't make the interview about him.,
