Hi. My son is considering pursuing a nomination to one of the academies, and I believe he has a good possibility of receiving it. However, as a parent I have a question. I wonder if my son will later wish he had a more stereotypical college experience and if he will will have regrets or "what if" kind of questions. Are there any service academy grads out there that are willing to speak about this from their own experience? My son will make his own choices and I would never get in the way of that, but this thought keeps nagging at me. I have a son already enlisted in the Army, and I myself was in the Army N.G. for seven years, so please understand I am all-in if this is what he chooses to do with his life. Thanks in advance!
