    did not prevent me from putting everything I had into every game I like to play sports but I like to read and listen to music just as much I spent a majority of my free time when I am not with my friends reading books I prefer to read books that are part of a larger series but any book can be a good one I could spend an entire afternoon content with just a book I grew up the middle of three siblings My oldest sister Ariana is a graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy s class of 2010 and is currently stationed in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania She is what inspired me to join the Coast Guard She is currently engaged to Chris Mohnke class of 2009 I also have another older sister Alyssa who attended the Academy in the Class of 2014 for two years before transferring into SUNY Maritime in Throggs Neck New York She will graduate as a civilian early this January My last sister is eight years old and plans to attend the Academy as soon as she gets through elementary school but I explained to her she might have to wait a little bit longer than that My family has been extremely supportive and comes up to visit as often as possible They are the quintessential Coast Guard family which you will find a lot of at the Academy Pride and devotion are not just characteristics of Coast Guard officers and enlisted members but also of the majority of cadets families They know the missions and duties of the Coast Guard and respect the great name of our service While I have always said the CGA was my first choice for college I am not sure if I always really meant it

    excellent square state out west Colorado I grew up in Colorado Springs all my life and ironically enough I lived about five miles from the Air Force Academy My mother was a 1984 graduate of USAFA and later an instructor and my father was an Army instructor at USAFA as well Some people tell me that my parents fell in love while pushing cadets off the 10 meter diving platform for water survival class I am the middle child of three boys Kyle the youngest is a tennis and track all star and the older one Air Force Second Lieutenant Kobi Rex is currently an acquisitions officer at Mountain Home AFB Needless to say there is a lot of military background in my life and I am proud to be serving my country as well Personally I believe that connections and relationships with people are the most important things in life I have aspirations of being an officer in the future as well as a successful businessman after that but life for me is really about forging friendships and bonds that will span a lifetime At the Academy I take every chance possible to do things with people whether it is club activities athletics or intercompany sports for Charlie Company I ve participated in track and field for well over a decade and more specifically I ve pole vaulted for nine years but the reason that I always stick with it is because I love the friends that I compete with I am also a part of numerous clubs at school my newest membership is to the hand bell choir club While that may not sound too enticing nor am I terribly musically gifted the hand bell choir is simply an awesome opportunity to hang out with my friends and
