    Curious, when did you realize you were passionate about attending USMA?

    Personally, I've wanted to be in the army since I was in elementary school but it wasn't till 7th grade when I watched Band of Brothers that I knew West Point was where I wanted to go.

    After attending SLE I knew West Point was the one.

    April 23rd, 2014. I visited with my Dad while on spring Break in 8th grade. After 3 hours on campus, I told him I wanted to go....the grind has been embraced ever since.

    Since 5th grade. My scout master was an academy graduate and that sparked my interest and he has mentored me through to Eagle. I had the opportunity to attend SLE last summer and that solidified everything for me.

    I had always wanted to go to USAFA cause I visited the campus in elementary school and was amazed. After going to both SLEs, I realized USMA was a way better fit for me.
