Like father, like son: Kickapoo High graduate selected for USAF Academy


John Robert Snider knows the exact moment when he realized a career in the military was in his future.

That defining moment was when his father, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army and a West Point graduate, returned from an overseas mission and shared his experiences of service, love of his country, being a leader, and working with his colleagues.

Snider chose the U.S. Air Force Academy as his first choice. He reports to Colorado Springs on June 27.
