Why I came to the Academy: "I came to the Academy because it's the best school in nation. It offers more opportunities than any other institution anywhere in the world. It provides me a way to give back to this great nation. The challenges you face teach you about yourself, the people with you are top of the line, the education is second to none, you have a career laid out for you following graduation, and without people to fight for our country we could never enjoy the freedoms we live with today."
