An Interest Sparks

I think my interest in the military was largely influenced by the family I grew up in.  I come from a family of many service members:

  • My great-grandpa served in the Air Force
  • My grandpa served in the Navy
  • My great-uncle served in the Army
  • My dad served in the Marines
  • My mom served in the Navy

My military interests have leaned towards the Air Force because of my interest in flight and space.  Initially, my dream was to become a pilot or an astronaut, but over the years my eye sight has become increasingly worse, and now my eye sight is far below the minimum requirement.  With these aspirations out of the question, I became interested in engineering, specifically aerospace engineering.  If was not going to be able to fly, I wanted to be a significant part in the advancement of flight in air and space.  I realized as an aerospace engineer I could also contribute more to the military than just the advancement of flight:

  • Defensive technology- satellites
  • Offensive technology- missiles

All these things considered, my life goals are

  1. to become an officer in the US Air Force by graduating from Air Force ROTC
  2. to become an aerospace engineer
  3. to contribute to the US’s technological and military advancement in air and space
