Teen Accepted Into All Five Military Service Academies


By Debbie Gregory.

David Howe is a 2017 Red Wing High School graduate in Minnesota.  As a senior, Howe applied to all five military services academies.  He covered all the bases, and it certainly was successful for him, as he was accepted by all of them!

It is very difficult to obtain acceptance to one service academy, let alone five.

Applicants are first interviewed and nominated by their state Senator or member of the House.  Applicants must show good leadership skills and good grades, and excellence in sports is also highly valued.

Howe graduated with a 4.0 GPA for high school, and was one of the top students in his class.  He is also a three-sport athlete.  He is well liked, and is a very special young man.  He clearly is the type of young person that is service academy material.

After being accepted to all five service academies, it was a difficult choice which one to attend.  Howe chose the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado.  He will report for duty in a few weeks on June 29th.

After college, Howe will enter the U.S. Air Force as a second lieutenant.  He will be required to serve a minimum term of ten years of active duty for our nation.

Howe aspires to become a pilot.  Perhaps this goal helped him to decide which service academy was the best fit for him.  He is very excited about his future.
