    Cool Hello~Hola~Guten Tag~Bonjour~

    Hello everyone, been a lurker for a little while and finally decided to post something. I've been interested in the Army since I was much younger, and am (only) 15 now, but ready to serve when the time comes. My plan is to apply to West Point and a ROTC scholarship, along with the Naval Academy and NROTC-Marine Option scholarship (gotta have options), if I'll even be able to get in. If none of that works out, enlisting is something I'll be glad to do too, as long as I can serve in the military.

    Not Yet Serving\Applying
    1. Age - 15
    2. Alma Mater - FCHS
    3. Sports - Track & Field
    4. Activities - Reading, writing, running, learning
    5. Why I Want to be a Soldier - To give back to those who have served/are currently serving
    6. Possible MOS\Branch Interest - Officer: Probably aviation or military police. Enlisted: 31B or 35F
    7. Current Progress Towards Application - Too young to do much, just talking to officers and soldiers, and doing my best in school.
    8. Additional Comments - Nice to meet you all!

    Welcome to the Forum and its great that you are doing your research now on joining the military. Stick around and learn as much as you can and one day you will be helping others answer their questions as well.

    they would have given it to the officer corps.- SMA William A. Connelly

    Welcome to the forums ACM. Congrats on great career aspirations and you are right, keep your options open right now. Just shoot with any questions you may have as Im sure someone can answer them here. I would say at this stage to work hard on your grades and your PT as being a world class athlete and getting good grades are positives not only for the military, but for life..

    Best Regards

    Welcome to the forums!

    Just as was said before, keep up with PT(pushups, situps, running) and do your absolute best in school so you have the best chance possible for your west point aspirations.

    Looking forward to seeing you around! Don't be a stranger!
