I've noticed that on this thread post that most people support each other. Through the application process, admissions, and all the stuff in-between. This is great there is a wonderful sense of community that exists. But what happens when someone decides to leave this community? Or the community that is a service academy. It seems to me it's like that song "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again." The song goes: " When Johnny comes marching home again,Hurrah! Hurrah!We'll give him a hearty welcome then Hurrah! Hurrah!The men will cheer and the boys will shout The ladies they will all turn out And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home." Everyone is excited when they get into an Academy and go. I'm not going to shoot that down because it is a great accomplishment but what if they're not happy there? What if they want to come home? What if they're sent home? It seems to me that everyone that cheered and supported them turns their back on them. No matter what they did. I say this because one of my friends was sent home from USNA over something bad he did 2 years ago and another friend separated from West Point a semester before graduation. He (USNA) committed an honor offense and a conduct offense as a senior by lying about where he was over a trip. He lost most his friends, his support of his companymates, and his girlfriend. His life spiraled out of control with drug use and now he's been to rehab and is trying to get back on track.My West Point friend has been in college and plans to enlist when the military isn't being cut down so badly. He barley talks about West Point anymore. For him it hurts too much. What I'm trying to say is, the people you guys support on this website are people. They are imperfect and human. They should have your support both in and out of a service academy if they are important in your lives. One mistake, does not make them trash.
