how many of you students/mentors have a parent or have someone on your team in the military
No love for the Coast Guard?
I have a buddy of mine on my team who just got finished with his stint in the Air Force, and is now in the reserves.
On another team, I have a friend who is entering her 8 years of service in the Air Force as well starting this summer.
In my immediate family, I don’t know about anyone serving in the military since WWII, but in my extended family, I know a few people who are currently, and formerly in the Navy along with at least one person I’ve known so long who is like family in the Air Force.
I pretty much know, or have known someone in every branch of the military now or within the last 10 years primarily between both friends & family serving, along with co-workers as well in my industry.
Not sure about the Coast Guard, but I do know a friend who works in the Gulf Of Mexico doing search & rescue stuff at a shoreline based college, so that counts and is close enough for me.
I will be attending the U.S. Naval Academy. I-Day is July 2nd.
Marine brat =P. I’ve gone to school on/around all the larger marine corps bases(lejune, pendleton, cherrypoint ect)…and I had never heard of FIRST. We got stationed out at mobcom in the middle of nowhere (Missouri) about a 2 years ago and the high school out here just started FIRST.
I’m guessing you are not targeting this to the Israeli teams…
(In Israel army service is mandatory)
I’m serving in the army at the moment (kindof), In the academic Reserve (studying to get a degree and then serve as a Mech. Engineer).
