Why I came to the Academy: "I came to the academy because I feel that the academy gives me the best chance to succeed in life. It gives me a secure job after I graduate and a great education. I also came here cause I needed to travel away from home. I also came here to play Division I baseball."
My plans for the future: "My plans for the future are to first graduate from here but have some fun in the process. Then I would like to get into intelligence and become an F.B.I. agent and eventually settle down and start a family of my own."
