I posted this earlier. I think Service Academies gives you a good head start on getting to General Officer/Flag Officer if you make the military a career. But I was corrected by someone saying that it no longer gives you an advantage over an ROTC commission. I don't have the stats to disagree, but I'd say I'd rather go the Service Academy route if I had aspirations of getting to the top of the mountain. I visited Air Force Academy this past July and I left there with a great sense of patriotism and respect for those cadets who complete the training, education. Those are truly among our finest young adults.
