United States Military Academy Griffin Hokanson

Who

My name is Griffin Hokanson, I am a Senior in Crater School of Business Innovation and Science. It has been my desire to attend West Point and become an officer in our military ever since I've entered high school.

What

I want to serve. After I graduate from West Point with a world class education I’m going to serve for a minimum of five years, possibly more. On top of that, I would like to receive a degree in engineering.

Where

The United States Military Academy is located in West Point, New York

Duty, Honor, Country

When

I have finished my application to West Point and have received my recommendations from Senators. I am graduating from Crater High School in 2017, and plan to attend my undergraduate education at West Point. That is a four year program. After that, I will serve in the US Army for as many years as they assign.

why

Many people in my family have served and in the past years I’ve aspired to follow in their footsteps. Once I seriously started looking at joining the military I decided to take advantage of their opportunities. Going to an academy offers you an amazing education, athletics and will strengthen my core values.

How

The application to West Point is very rigorous. You have to meet the requirements in academics, athletics, medical, along with receiving a recommendation from a state senator or congressman.
