I am applying for this scholarship in regards of my mother serving the US Air Force for a total of about 20 years. She has inspired me to do many great things in life, and pushes me to try my best in everything I do. Though I do not plan on serving in the military, I still hope to be able to serve my community as well as she does.

I am applying for this scholarship due to my dad serving in the US Military for 17 years. I loved that he fulfilled most of his life so far as a Military Drill Sergeant. I am hoping one day I could join the Military and do the same thing that my did. Fight for our countries freedom. I would love this more than anything and make more than just my dad proud. I hope one day my family is depending on me in the future. It would be my dream to take care of my whole entire family.

I am applying for this scholarship. My father served and retired from the U. S. Navy and my mother as well until a massive stroke. Now it's my time to show them how much I want to take care of them. I want this for me more than anything.

I am applying for this scholarship because I have a goal that I have set out and I feel that I need to do whatever it take to achieve it. I want to go to college and not a 2yr college but a university. I have no experience of the military but I wish to join so I can take care of my family that I have depending on me.
