Topic: OT - An essay: Why come back? (2 msgs / 58 lines)
1) From: Brett Mason
"First year cadets at the Air Force Academy are allowed to leave the Academy
without penalty up through the end of first-year Christmas break. Those who
came back were assigned to write a paper on why they chose to return. Here
is one young cadet's masterpiece, which has begun to be widely publicized...
"Why return to the Air Force Academy after Winter Break?
"So after our sunburns have faded and the memories of our winter break have
been reduced to pictures we've pinned on our desk boards, and once again
we've exchanged T-shirts and swim suits for flight suits and camouflage,
there still remains the question that every cadet at U.S.Air Force Academy
in Colorado Springs has asked themselves at some point: Why did we come
back? Why, after spending two weeks with our family would we return to one
of the most demanding lifestyles in the country?

I put the rest out on my blogsite  so
as not to encumber the list...http://weblog.xanga.com/RockinJava9You may know my son is there, 3rd year Cadet.  This essay is not his, but
this sentiment rings strong when you spend time with Cadets... and it rings
strong with him as well...
Cheers,

Brett, I know how proud you are of your son. My son graduated from West
Point in '99. I think that my wife and I are much more proud of our son and
what he accomplished by going there than  my son is himself.
Continue to enjoy his time there and I hope that you have gotten and will
get to visit him more before he graduates. Although I've never been to the
Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, I have been to Colo. Sprgs as my son
was stationed there for a year or so. It is beautiful there.
Good luck to a proud father,
Frank
