    Hi there. I am a gamer who is currently a Rear Admiral Upper Half in the game I play, the CO of the fictional Boat Forces Command. I thought I might as well introduce myself. Although I am not currently in the USCG, I aspire to go to the Academy, and am currently working on getting into the Naval Sea Cadets. This account is mainly used for questions. I'll keep this short, but thanks for checking me out, and I'll see you around.

    I'm not saying you can't have fun, you should, you're only young once. But if you aspire to go to the Academy I truly hope you are giving a lot more time and dedication to your studies and athletics than to a game. I'll pretty much guarantee no one here cares that you play an Admiral on TV. Best of luck...

    If you are seriously considering the Academy, I suggest you spend less time playing video games and more time playing physical games. You will not get into the Academy without evidence of sports on your record. While there are cadets who play video games, there are no cadets who are gamers.

    I don't play an admiral on TV or in a game but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn once :-) welcome and enjoy your journey.

    Yes, sports and academics are very important in being eligible for acceptance into a military academy. My youngest son was interested in attending West Point until we went to a recruiting seminar at a local college...all they kept saying was they wanted captains from the varsity teams at their school, but nothing about academics. He got up and walked out in the middle of the seminar and never looked back. He told me later he wanted to attend school for his mind, not for being a dumb butt jock. Couldn't really argue with him, he received a full ride academic scholarship to a very good college and has maintained above a 3.8 gap while working full time hours supporting himself. He graduates in May with a bachelors in EE.

    Refocus your gaming attributes to academics and get yourself into a sport that you can successfully compete in as well as doing a lot of community volunteering. We wish you the best.

    Games these days are getting very...in depth.
