I was an appointee to the US Naval Academy. I signed up for the AOC program however my health kept me from flying. I had friends who were pilots so they got me rides from time to time. So I did the rest of my USN on the USS Newport News in the Gunnery Division...the gunboat navy is now gone...I loved it while I was there.
More than that I can't say.
I would love to fly in a F4U one day...they're getting rare.
US Marine and US Navy pilots are the best in the world by a wide margin with the Israeli pilots coming in second.
