The Long and Winding Road

I recently learned that a very nice cadet that I have known for several years has been disenrolled from the Academy. Another who is a 1c decided that he was going to leave on his own accord just months away from graduation.

The reason I bring this up is as a bit of a cautionary tale for all the would-be cadets out there.

The Academy is obviously a very tough place to get into, but it is even tougher to stay there and graduate with your class. There are so many potential pitfalls along the way.

I pray for both of these young men and for all of you that you will make the right choices over the next months and years ahead.
