EnderWiggins my wife was born in August of 1956. You were born on December 29, 1956. That makes her several months older than you.

She had to get a waiver to be entered into kindergarten because she had just turned 5 years old. She was the youngest student in every class through her entire academic career. She was the youngest graduate from her high school in the class of 1974. She had to get a waiver signed by a doctor and a surgeon to take the tests to get into nursing school because one of the age requirement at that time were that a person had to be 18 before they would allow her to take the tests to get into nursing school.

In order for you to graduate in the class of 1974 you would either have had to have been only 4 years when you entered Kindergarten or you would have had to graduate a year earlier than your classmates. In my previous posts I congratulated you for your achievement because very very few persons graduate from West Point at 21 most of them are 22 or older. Instead of accepting my compliment you stated that you were just average and that most of your classmates were 21 when they graduated. It is possible for people to graduate from West Point at just 21. It certainly is not the norm as you would surely know if you had actually attended.

“West Point rules are that anybody can matriculate as long as they will be older than 20 and younger than 27 on graduation day.” I am not sure where you dug that up. In reality each candidate must:
be 17 but not yet 23 years of age by July 1 of the year admitted.

I am not a professional Obama PR person as you most likely are, so I am going to get out and enjoy the beautiful day rather than continue refuting the rest of the lies and micharacterizations in your post.

I do not know your wife and I do not care about her particular experience.

I was born in December of 1956. I graduated from Parochial School 8th grade in 1970. I graduated from High school in 1974, and West Point in 1978. I never skipped a grade, and I never required a waiver.

And I was not the youngest member of my West Point Class by more than two weeks.

"In reality each candidate must: be 17 but not yet 23 years of age by July 1 of the year admitted."

Do the math. I meet those qualifications with six months to spare.
