Free college education--our military academies
I have been attending our high school Senior Awards nights this past two weeks. I am so impressed with the students who have been acdcepted to the military academies. It is hard work, but all free. They get free uniforms, room board, tuition, books and even earn a salary. One trip home a year may be included too. Someone once said the value of a West Point, Annapolis or Air Force Academy education--something like $500,000, I think. Can't remember for sure. Anyhow, as these students' appointments were announced at our awards nights, their entire class cheered so enthusiastically, and the parents too. Really heart warming.
