    Greetings! I am a former Marine and have a HS daughter that aspires to attend a Service Academy. She has almost completed her sophomore year. I signed up to research the application process and meet others.

    Thanks for the welcome. Now where do I find the list of acronyms? I am pretty fluent in military terms but some of these are new to me. Thanks.

    The glossary is a stickie, under Community Information. Welcome. Search using "Glossary" if you cannot find.

    BTW, your HS daughter is now "DD." ;)

    :welcome1: You came to the right place.

    I have a special regard for the Marines, as I took care of many of you during my tenure as a Navy corpsman and nurse. Thank you for your service.

    Welcome! Wish I'd found this forum years before my DD was applying (current candidate to USNA). There is lots of great info here. I've learned a ton, much of which I'm storing away for my younger kids who are showing interest in SA's. Good luck to your DD, and thanks for your service
