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.

EnderWiggins why don't we do the math together.
“I graduated from Parochial School 8th grade in 1970” “ I never skipped a grade”
So let's see:
Started 8th Grade in September of 1969
Started 7th Grade in September of 1968
Started 6th Grade in September of 1967
Started 5th Grade in September of 1966
Started 4th Grade in September of 1965
Started 3rd Grade in September of 1964
Started 2nd Grade in September of 1963
Started 1st Grade in September of 1962
Started Kindergarten in September of 1961
You claim to have been born on December 29, 1956, Were you 4 years old when you were sent off to kindergarten? Did you enter the 1st grade at 5?

First you argued that you were just the average age of a West Point Grad at 21. Then you said, “If the average age of highs school graduation is 18, then about half will be younger. See how that works?”
Then you said,”I was not the youngest member of my graduating class by more than a month.” Now you say,”And I was not the youngest member of my West Point Class by more than two weeks.

Nearly everyone knows very few people graduate from High School at 17 probably even you. My wife did but she was the youngest member of every class she was in from grade school through high school. You claim to have graduated the same year she did despite being several months younger. Then you claim you were just the average age of your fellow students as if you wouldn't be acutely aware that you were almost a year younger than many of your classmates through your entire school career as my wife was.

I posted the age requirements to apply for West Point and have never claimed that you could not have graduated when you said you did. I am just curious why you have tried to argue so hard you were the average age of a West Point graduate and have changed your story several times. You do a lot of wiggling in your posts EnderWiggins.
