    Kale, My brother went there, he left after a year. It was in 1980, the first year they allowed women cadets. He felt it was not the right type of thing for him, there was a lot of upper classmen hazing and such that went on at that time and he said he could never do that to another person. So he opted out when he still could. If you want to talk to him I can set it up.

    Hey Hallpass, Not exactly West Point but..........

    I went thru as an electronic apprentice in the Ozzy Army. I whinged and moaned all the way. Best 10 years of my life. In amongst all the boring crap I got to do stuff that few ppl ever do. Be in recon choppers in old creek beds with blades inches from the gum trees, chase kangroo's with Leopard tanks, shoot really big guns, fixed laser range finders, night vision gear and the list goes on. The firepower demostrations once a year at night was the most memorable.

    Would I do it again? My oath, but maybe as an officer not an nco. Nicer to be the King of the sh ts not the sh t of kings.

    Gunna (do a lot of things!)
    Ex "shuttlecraft"

    PS. I still owe you some ozzy newspapers and stuff from my no-show at mudbug last year.

    I know a guy that went on a football scholarship. He hated it after 1 year.

    My suggestion...Airforce Academy.

    I have a couple of good friends that went there both played football and graduated. Do you want to go there? If you want to talk to them I can set it up.
