    My main comments for the Academy in Florida is to never be late, dress nicely and in uniform whether it be PT gear or the dress uniform, and never miss school for each hour of school missed is a page and a half of a written report...its no fun. PT is what you make of it just do your best thats all thats really expected of you and keep your head up reach your goals week by week and class by class and you'll be done in no time. I am getting there slowly but surely but its going to definately be worth it in the end if its truely what you want to do in life.
