Proud American: VA Teen Admitted to All 4 Military Academies
Talk about being one proud American.
A Fairfax, Va., teen has accomplished the rare feat of being admitted to all four military academies.
Tim Park, an 18-year-old Trinity Christian High School senior, was accepted to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy in Maryland, Air Force Academy in Colorado and Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.
"I'm feeling amazing right now," he told Fox 5 DC.
He said he was inspired to serve after watching a History Channel documentary on the four military academies when he was eight years old.
Serving in the armed forces would also continue a family tradition. Park's grandfather fought for America in the Korean War, and his father currently serves in the U.S. Army Reserve.
While he said he seems to be leaning toward West Point, he's keeping his options open.
