Here is one of my proudest moments.

Graduation from VMI, first in my class of Electrical Engineering.

Sen. John McCain was our graduation speaker.

This is General Bunting, our superintendant, giving me my diploma.
And no, I did not have to do military service after graduation. All cadets however have to take four years of ROTC, and I chose Navy. I was offered a Navy scholarship (4 years) with a five year commitment, but turned it down (as I had an academic scholarship instead). For the first year or two I thought about commissioning anyway, but then decided not to. Four years was enough for me.
Instead, I went to graduate school at the University of Virginia. Which was like a real college experience.

That is impressive; just getting through VMI and then finishing 1 in your class. Congratulations!

Duh...

I'm not surprised you were first in your class. Anyone who can study law in France, has to be brilliant.
