In Harm's Way
One of my daughters received an appointment to the Air Force Academy. It took a year for all the physicals, skill tests, luncheons, interviews, and applications to be processed. After all this time, the bar she used for practicing the pull ups required of all incoming cadets still hangs in the entry to her old room.
