Home-schooled student headed to Military Academy, 17 June 2007, North County Times, Escondido, California
Joe Lambert has a driving force in his life, he wants to keep his country free.
With that as his goal, Lambert will soon be headed to West Point, N.Y., where he has been accepted into the United States Military Academy.
Before being accepted to West Point, Lambert went through a process that included a nomination by an elected official —- in his case, U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa —- interviews and meeting the academy’s standards in academics, health and physical fitness.
He said the process began more than two years ago and he found out he was accepted in April. He will be one of about 1,200 freshmen accepted from an applicant pool of around 20,000.
