Three Covington County natives shared their experiences at three different military academies with the Rotary Club yesterday.
C.J. Philpott, a political science major and a rising senior at the U.S. Air Force Academy, said that basic training prior to starting the academy and freshman year were very difficult.
Sim Bowden, a rising junior at the U.S. Naval Academy, said that the 50-day indoctrination program summer prior to freshman year was extremely challenging.
Chandler Jones’ experience was different, as he attended a prep school prior to enrolling in West Point.
