    Nobody is going to pay for your flight from Guam except for day zero at the academy. I've taken the flight from New York to Guam, it was painful, I wouldn't want to do it for no reason even if the flights are free. I think I spent about 17 hours of straight flying time, and the time change killed me. Just show up on Day zero, the visit is a waste of time and will probably only discourage you from going there.

    While I didn't live in Guam, when I was appointed, living in California, it really was not practical for me to show up for any early visits. I showed up on Day Zero, on my own, but I was pretty sure that KP was where I wanted to go at that point, anyway.
