With all due respect, if you are able to "go through the experience " , succeed as a Plebe, and STILL answer SA forum questions, then you need to write a book for others because you will have mastered what thousands have not. That first year you won't know which Mac truck hit you! This not only comes from listening to my own kids experiences but other parents retelling their kids experiences.
It's going to get hard! Harder than you can ever imagine! It's all about surviving and keeping your feet on the ground and moving forward. Once the dust settles, then you might have time to breathe and think about those coming up behind.
As a parent, I would say focus on you. Get up to West Point and worry about your life there and give THAT your 100%. Let those on the "outside world" help those yet to come. You go "DO YOU. BE YOU." Go Army!
