I just got home today, from my Naval Academy 4 day visit. It was a great time and learned a lot about the Air Force Academy. However, it was cold all 4 days, the temperature during the football game last night was 13 degrees.
I will be posting pictures of the trip, on my blog.
Today is a huge day.
I came straight home from the airport and went to Congressman Paul Cooks office to turn in my congressional nomination package. It is one of the single most important things to do while applying for the academy, without, the nomination you cannot be accepted to any academy.
The only other nomination I need to finish is the Vice-President nomination.
This was my congressional nomination package.

Here was just few of the pictures I took at the Air Force Academy during my visit.
Today is Day 2 at Air Force Academy. People here are great and chill. So this is short post because I have no WIFI here, I just got internet access for a few minutes. Looking forward to cold football game tomorrow, Air Force vs San Diego State. It is supposed to Snow.

I had my Navy ROTC interview this evening with LTJG Gomez. It was couple hours long and went pretty good. He said something that made me think. He said one of my best qualities is how “humble” I am. However, he said if I am planning on having a military career I need to be able to be able to talk about my accomplishments and achievements. It was great learning experience.
Now time to get home and pack my clothes. I am leaving for the Air Force Academy for 4 days in morning.

I saw this in the Redlands Daily Facts. Last Tuesday, it always nice to see someone recognize some of your accomplishments.

I have been the Senior Patrol Leader for the last year of Redlands Troop 11, and my term is coming to the end soon.
Tonight was my last “regular” meeting. The only meetings left for the year is the court of honor next week and Christmas party in December.
I will miss our meeting on Nov 20th, because I will be at the Air Force Academy.
The one thing I wanted to do for my last meeting was bring in my, Blue and Gold Officer, Mr. Riojas from the Naval Academy to talk about what a great opportunity that not only Naval Academy has but the other service academies. He spoke about the ROTC scholarship opportunities and even Officer Candidate School.
He talked about the scouting program and what a great leadership program we have and how much the service academies like the scouting program.
If even one scout takes that information and changes their life it will be a great thing!
Here a couple pictures from our meeting.
