Hello, I'm a soon to be senior in high school in West Virginia. I plan to attend a four year college, my first choice being the USMA, followed by VMI, Norwich, and the USNA. I plan to major in mechanical engineering. I hope to earn a commission in the US Army, however, no service is out of the question just yet. I am extremely interested in Special Operations in general, more specifically the US Army Special Forces. I hope to someday serve in Special Forces and welcome any feedback on which branch would best prepare me for such service. I am also a weapons fanatic, so if I start to ramble on about the ballistic superiority of the NATO standard 5.56 x 45mm cartridge, just be patient. Thanks in advance.
