    -->4. The service academies are for training warriors

    WRONG! The Acadamies are training LEADERS.

    Being "ex-military" you should have at least this part right. How many potatoes did you have to peel?

    • You got that right! The benefits of graduating from one of the military academies are enormous. The learnig and achieving of self-discipline (sorely lacking), time management, personnel (not personal) leadership, organizational skills, results-oriented planning, and the pride of serving in the defense of America, which only those who have/are serving will appreciate. No civilian could ever truly understand. Plus, all of the employment opportunities, especially management, of having academy graduate/officer/honorable discharge on your resume.
