Today I was honored to lead the Yucaipa High School JR ROTC Memorial Day Service in the City of Banning. It will also be the last time I wear my Air Force JR ROTC uniform and my next uniform will be that of the United States Navy when I attend to US Naval Academy Preparatory school at Naval Station, Newport, Rhode Island in July.

This is our 3rd Eagle Project this month with Troop 11. This project was led by Alex Bottenberg. We painted the teen center at City of Yucaipa. I just realized this is my final Eagle Project I will participate in prior to leaving scouting.
This was second Eagle project this month with my troop. My friend, Brett Everst, completed his Eagle Project at Unity of Yucaipa Church. We built a rock and succulence garden that was the final part of another Eagle Project we did a Labyrinth, last year led by Ventura Wilson.
I found out today I will be graduating with honors and I also received special recognition from my JROTC Instructor!
Just finished up doing a Troop 11 Eagle Project, led by Colin Norris at Yucaipa Equestrian Center.
Last month, I competed in my final Boy Scout Camporee called Pop Nye with my Troop 11. I was a member of the Ice Hawk Patrol and had a great time and was really proud how the young Ice Hawks competed. They even earned the presidential award which means they scored at least 90% in every category.
I also got a chance to compete in the Super Scout competition and I finally won this competition. It was something I wanted to earn before leaving boy scouts program in couple months. Here was recent article that was posted in the Redlands Daily Facts.
This afternoon I received an email that I was just accepted to US States Air Force Academy Prep School at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. I was curious that I had not heard anything. This was the last military academy that I had not heard from after applying to all five.
Although, I am completely humbled and honored by the offer by the US Air Force Academy. I have already accepted my officer to Naval Academy Prep School and have to report to Naval Station, Newport Rhode Island on July 22, 2013
