    I recently saw something in the newspaper regarding weather spotters. My countys' Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service are seeking residents willing to observe emergency weather conditions as trained weather spotters. The training is one time and 3 hours long. The main job of a weather spotter is to serve as the trained eye for the EMA and weather service during weather emergencies, relaying info that radar can't. I was wanting input regarding what view USNA along with the other academies would take towards me being a weather spotter? It's something I'm interested in regardless. I'm just wondering if it would be viewed as leadership, service, etc, would it be pretty significant? Thanks for the input.

    Most certainly it would be viewed as a community service activity, as to whether it would represent a leadership activity would depend upon whether you were in charge of some other participants in the service.

    The SAs are looking for candidates who can be trained and developed into leaders, consequently they look for those who have exhibited leadership traits and experiences.
