First, congrats on graduating from Annapolis. Second, thank you for your service. I am a former AD Army officer myself. And while you and I have enjoyed, presumably, good mental health, not everyone has. Almost 20% of all Americans have a mental health issue in any given year. Her's happens to be anxiety with the unfamiliar, in general, and travel, in particular. She sees a therapist 2x a month and is on meds and thankfully her anxiety is well-managed except when challenged with a direct challenge. And she has both asthma and no interest in military service. She is putting herself thru college -- without a scholarship -- and with very little help from me or her mother -- as that is her choice. I had to take out loans for my education and you got your education compliments of taxpayers and your own hard work at the academy. Everyone's circumstances are different.
