Since my father was my inspiration, I admiredbeing like him, which gave me an interest to join the naval academy.Besides, an initial interest in the naval service is the immenseneeds and threats in the American land as well as other countries inthe globe. Due to the existing threats, it is critical for youngpeople to step up and become leaders so as to protect the freedom andsovereignty of the people. Without the young people stepping up andtaking the leadership roles in the country, it is likely that the oldleaders will retire and the country will be exposed to imminentdanger.
