I was just notified that my congressional interview with Col. Paul Cook(ret) office is on January 4, 2014.
I am excited about this interview and looking forward to sharing with the panel my desire to serve my country. The one thing that has prepared me for this interview has been the last five years of interviews with the Boy Scouts. Every rank advancement we had to do a skills review, scoutmaster interview and board reviews. Thank God for scouting.
I am planning on doing a “mock” board review with the help of some of the scout parents to help me better prepare for my nomination panel interview. I am going to trying to get that done in next couple weeks.
I am asking for nomination to Naval Academy, West Point, Air Force Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy. My application to all the academies is complete except the Merchant Marine Academy. I have few more items to finish up this next week on the Merchant Marine Academy.
Here is the letter I received from Congressman Cooks office.
