In terms of the military and the patriotic pride, America has alway statued its true liberty globally in an undisputed manner. Be it fiction, movies, actions, comics or the military conquests, the American soldiers have shown that the shine and integrity of their pearl is always ready to harbour their hard earned, persevered pride. The snipers and rangers have promised a Chris Kyle impact to all the mammoths that dream to stride ahead the decorum of the country. It’s not an easy task to be a soldier, to covet the officer and the gentleman well beneath your travor, but for the elites it’s easier ‘DONE’ than “SAID’. Let’s take a look at the most prestigious colleges of the United States who have made their commitment towards their country an argus eyed strength:
1. US AIR FORCE ACADEMY (COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO)
It’s a ubiquitous generalisation that if you have to name the best military colleges of any place, mentioning the chief Airforce, Naval and Military academy is indispensable. For all of those who have watched Top Gun open mouthed, let me tell you that it was just an exponential fraction of what happens in reality at the air force institutes. The youngest of all the federal academies, it is by no means any less competent or potent. Women also fly around 21% at this academy and prove that neither flight nor the technique is a season any particular gender can muster.
2. US MILITARY ACADEMY (WEST POINT, NEW YORK)
Neither thequality of West Education can be questioned to nor the iron fists of US Military academy. This is the place where questions question themselves before speaking and the doubts doubt themselves before taking out their heads in front of these budding soldiers. The motto of the academy has three pillars, duty, honor and country. Now this is what oratory is without giving a speech. All the cadets here are with a part of the cadet of corps, an active duty soldier in the armed forces. Women form about 15% of the total strength here.
3. US NAVAL ACADEMY (ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND)
The US Naval Academy is regarded as the finest military institution in the country and even the marines swear by this fact. If you have ever watched the movie, An Officer and a Gentleman, you must be quite a fan of the naval officers and this is the place which forts the marine military life of the United States. Along with the military hardcore training, equally demanding academics and a stupendous atheletic participation, the student also avail themselves specialised trainings.
4. US COAST GUARD ACADEMY (NEW LONDON, CONNECTICUT)
This is the academy that trains the guardians to the seas, the men and women in white who serve rigorously and earnestly to keep the oceans soaring blue. The smallest in kin of all other federal academies, the admission into this academy is also competitively tough, but without any recommendation from US Congress’ members which distinguishes it from other academies. The school has, on an average, just 16% of the admissions in total applicants. Also, one of the key feature here is that the institutionhas witnessed gender empowerment at the most here, with women comprising about 30% of the total students, which is a rarity in any military academy.
5. US MERCHANT MARINE ACADEMY (KINGS POINT, NEW YORK)
The motto of this college is something very intimate to each of our lives, emphasising the imbibe of focus to be actions, and not pretty words. The admission to this college is considered harder than getting into the top colleges around the globe, and the academics and training provided afterwards just open the ocean for the graduates. They have the choice of serving either in the civil waters or that of the military. Their training curriculum includes travelling to about eighteen countries in just one year, the year which is spent away from the academy though.
6. PATHFINDER SCHOOL
Pathfinder, as the name suggests trains the troops which find the paths or in most cases clear and make it for other troops to operate. Though they are a team of four, they are the sole operators until the main line of force arrives and rises there. The duration of the course is a mere but demanding three weeks which strengthens them in every sphere necessary for carrying out a successful air assault.
7. MARINE SCOUT SNIPER SCHOOL
The elite forces has the shoulders of the elite training academy standing firmly amidst the endless bullets, strikes and a well developed marching curriculum of the soldiers. The toughest school in the Marine Corps, this academy teaches the marines to operate in a two-man teams sniping away the enemy in their respective territories.
8. PARARESCUE SCHOOL
These are the saviors who are there to pull up all those warriors who have fallen down, especially the war pilots. They are the only warriors in the United States military whose chief operation is to rescue in the deadliest environments. Students here are not just trained in medical treatments but also a number of assisting techniques.
9. AIRBORNE SCHOOL (FORT BENNING, GEORGIA)
The rush and the cladded in marron, the paratroopers are the deadliest soldiers of any army. No terrain or rugged feature is inaccessible or inevitable for them as its the omnipresent air itself which carries them in and out. The students are trained indiscriminately stringent along with excelling in air borne operations.
10. VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE
The motto of this institute is among my favorites, meaning that the institute in the calm times of peace is a glorious asset, but as the time hardens, so does it, in the times of war, this glorious asset is a tower of strength. Clearly, the men and women marching here are not some everyday delight. Cadets at Virginia Military Institute understand the rigours of military and its life very well, as they are not even provided with beds to sleep on. Yes, you’ve read it correct, there are no beds for the cadets, they instead have roll-out mats. Even after this strict regimen, the pass outs are not compulsated to join the forces, they can pursue their life in civil too. Virginia Military Institute also distinguishes itself with the fact that it is the sole institution that has yielded graduates who had marched on their military journey upto the rank of service chiefs in three service branches.
11. VALLEY FORGE MILITARY ACADEMY AND COLLEGE (PENNYSLAVANIA)
Valley Forge’s chief intrigue is that, that it serves the purpose of both a secondary and a post secondary school. One of the junior military colleges of the United States, this college, after just two years of study and training provides a commission in the army. Since this institution provides education from the budding ages, courtesy to the high school implications of it, students can nurture and breed themselves from the army from a little age.
Another distinct feature of this place is that the teachers-students ratio is low as compared to other colleges, which makes the training process smoother and more intricate as compared to other institutions of the military. Yet another feature is the remnant presence of the British culture and band here.
12. RANGER SCHOOL (GEORGETOWN, US)
The rangers are those who lead the way, the innvincible, unconquered, impossible tasks are ececuted by these badass hardcore soldiers. Indeed, the school that trains them will not be a streamlined path of delicacies, it must be strong and capable enough to yield these elite troops. When the enemy is incorrigible and fearsome, these are the soldiers that lead the way. This school is considered as one of the toughest military schools where pre serving soldiers are broken beyond their limits and like phoenix, only the victorious emerge with wings.
