Well, I guess I am supposed to introduce myself, so I will start off by saying I am a USNA, USMA and USAFA candidate from California's 17th district for the class of 2013. I have resorted to this site multiple times for information on the service academies, and have found it very helpful. If anyone wants to know anything about me, or feels I may be of help in some way or another, feel free to send me a message.

Thank you. Well, Air Force has been my first choice school for as long as I can remember. I don't know why, but the Air Force has always appealed to me, probably because my uncle is a 1 star, so there is that outside influence. USMA and USNA are my second, just because of the breadth of career paths I am looking at are available at those Academies.

Your son is at the Military Academy? What does he want to do?

His major is Military History and his choices for branch are:
1) Infantry
2) Armor
3) Field Artillery
He won't know until Firstie year which one he gets.

My younger son is interested in Air Force. He is planning to go ROTC and not the academy.
He doesn't want that 24/7 military school life. :biggrin:

Thank you Antoinette.

I have thought about the military for a very long time now, but I don't know for sure what I am going to do until I have all of my options in front of me. I really do not think I can go wrong with any of the SA's.

Congradulations, just 6 1/2 more months eh?

The other two are the Naval Academy and West Point. My first choice is the Air Force Academy, but alot can change in the next couple of months. My second is West Point, so who knows, I may see you there.
